Methane is a short-lived climate pollutant. During COP 26, 110 countries signed the Global Methane Pledge to reduce methane emissions by 30 percent by 2030. It is very possible to achieve as methane comes from a lot fewer sources than carbon dioxide—mostly cattle, coal operations, and landfill and waste. Furthermore, methane can be used as a product in oil and gas industry. How will California assist the United States in reaching the Global Methane Pledge?
