    Methane can be used as a clean burning fuel (natural gas).  It creates energy and releases less CO2 then coal, oil, or wood.  Some methane sources are landfills, livestock, and coal production.  It is important to reduce methane emissions because it is 23 times a greenhouse gas as CO2.

    Methane is a common by-product of many landfills. Some scientists have found a way to harness the methane emitted in this way to furn turbines and produce electricity.
