    Although carbon dioxide takes the cake as the most damaging greenhouse gas affecting global warming, methane follows closely behind. Methane is emitted from numerous sources, including wetlands, agricultural farms, coal mines, and landfills. Once the gas reacts with other airborne pollutants, it becomes much more damaging than carbon dioxide, for it is more effective at trapping heat. In fact, once it comes in contact with other pollutants in the atmosphere, methane is 33 times more damaging than carbon dioxide. Essentially, methane plays the role as a harmful factor that increases global warming.
