“Methane is one of the gases that we can cut the fastest,” the European Commission Head Ursula Von der Leyen said ahead of the 26th COP26 Climate Summit held in Glasgow, Scotland.

The United States announced to take steps on fighting greenhouse gas methane, much more powerful than carbon dioxide.

The US measures to deal with methane are largely focused on oil and gas sector, which is responsible for 30% of the country’s methane emissions.
