Too much Methane! NOW! GHG!

You want to know why Australia has been burning up?
this is how I put 2+2 together…….

In this post:
NATURAL GAS = METHANE
I believe I have made a big mistake.
MAKE SURE THE STUFF DOES NOT LEAK!
How did the Permafrost Heat up so much?
Where has this extra methane heat come from?
no doubt, still leaking……..
The USA is not the only country that continues to ignore it

Above Aminmation: A reduction in global burned area in the 2000s had an unexpectedly large impact on methane emissions. (It looks like it is more complicated than that!) JANUARY 2, 2018 Find the full animation here. Credit: NASA/GSFC/SVS.** What’s Important: increase in methane

Municipal Solid Waste = MSW to BioFuel? NOW! #3

ALERT – I made a mistake. I did not research enough of this “Natural Gas” issue.
Natural Gas = Methane.
You can find out what needs to be done, HERE, to be sure we can Happily go ahead with waste to fuel.

a supply = Municipal Solid Waste
and
a demand= Fuel!

CNG, LNG, RNG fueling stations – #2 Waste to Energy

The Landfill, Garbage dump and other places that are making Methane (= Natural Gas) as we go about our daily lives!

ALERT – I made a mistake. I did not research enough of this “Natural Gas” issue.
Natural Gas = Methane. You can find out what needs to be done, HERE, to be sure we can Happily go ahead with waste to fuel.

the forms that Natural Gas, Methane, Biogas, Biofuel take:
CNG – Compressed natural gas (methane stored at high pressure),
LNG – Liquefied natural gas (methane + mix cooled down to liquid),
RNG – Renewable Natural Gas (biomethane)
Each slightly different but all interchangeable and all methane=natural gas to use as energy.
