This TED Talk shows how cutting methane can slow warming right now
Cutting methane emissions is the fastest, most effective way to slow the rate of global warming.
EDF climate scientist Ilissa Ocko explains why, in plain English, from the TED stage — and what we can do about it.
"If we succeed in a rapid, full-scale effort to cut methane, we have a chance to actually experience the benefits fast, in our lifetimes," she says.
Methane is the main ingredient in natural gas, and fossil fuel production is a major source of global methane emissions along with agriculture and waste management.
Watch the video and, for more about methane pollution, see how we’ve been building up to this moment to tackle it.
