Global Methane Pledge was created last year at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow. The goal of the pledge is for countries to lower greenhouse gas emissions.According to Eco Watch, 40 of the 125 members will announce plans for the reduction of methane at the COP27 conference in Egypt this November.
It’s estimated that there’s more methane in the atmosphere today than at any point in the last 800,000 years. This contributes to 30% of global warming.
Reducing methane emissions is seen as the best strategy to achieve the goal of keeping global warming to 1.5C. Participants in the pledge promised to reduce methane emissions by 30% by 2030. This will prevent 0.2 degrees of warming.
Some of the countries announcing their plans for lower methane production are Canada, the US, and Vietnam. They will join 15 countries which already announced their plans and will be followed by 25 more. Hopefully, other big methane emitters will follow soon.
