Great article!
I'm increasingly convinced that we ought to be focusing a lot more of our sustainability efforts and attention on methane reduction. Obviously a big reason is that methane is far more lethal than CO2 as a GHG. But the sources of methane emissions are significantly more finite and would seemingly be easier to target for reductions. Wouldn't it make sense to focus our reduction efforts on this at least for the short term? Landfill, waste water treatment, animal waste, animal "gases" all seem like they can be reduced a lot more easily and with greater impact than convincing millions of individuals, or thousands of companies or a few hundred congress-folk that they need to change their habits, business models and regulations.
