Are other chemicals worse for climate change than carbon?

    There really isn’t any way to quantify “worst green house gas”.  Carbon dioxide is bad because of how long it persists in the atmosphere.  However, methane could be considered just as bad, if not worse than carbon dioxide.  Methane has 21 times the insulting ability of CO2, though it only exists for a relatively short time in the atmosphere (about 12 years). If methane were being pumped out at a constant and high enough rate, its contribution to global climate disruption could be greater than that of CO2.
