Hidden Harm: Exposing the methane emissions associated with EU’s fossil fuel imports

Methane emissions are a threat to global climate and human health. Atmospheric methane concentrations are at their highest ever, having risen by almost 10 per cent in the past 20 years.

As the second most important greenhouse gas (GHG), more than 80 times more powerful than carbon dioxide (CO2) over a 20-year period, methane has contributed to 25 per cent of the global warming experienced today.
