    Though commonly seen as the number one enemy Carbon Dioxide is only seen as such because it is the most prevalent in the atmosphere (outside of water vapor). The most harmful greenhouse gas, as reported by the Envirommental Protection Agency, is methane.

In recent studies reported by the EPA, one of the leading contributors of methane into the environment was natural animal emissions.
