Is methane more dangerous than CO2?

    Yes, it is estimated to be between 25 and 33 times worse than CO2.  This difference comes from methane’s interaction with aerosols.  Methane will interact with hydroxyl oxidants, leaving fewer available to oxidize sulphur dioxide into sulphate, which would have more of a cooling effect.  Much of the atmospheric methane comes from livestock farming, landfills and fossil fuel energy.
