Almost 90 Countries Joined U.S. and EU in Efforts to Reduce Global Warming Activities

Almost 90 Countries Joined U.S. and EU in Efforts to Reduce Global Warming Activities

The Index Today

Senior Biden administration official said that nearly 90 countries now have joined hands with U.S.- and EU-led in efforts to reduce emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane 30% by 2030 from 2020 levels.

The partnership will be formally launched later on Tuesday.

After carbon dioxide, methane gas is one of the main greenhouse gas causing global warming. It has a higher heat-trapping potential than CO2 but breaks down in the atmosphere faster - meaning that cutting methane emissions can have a rapid impact on reining in global warming.

Among the new country signatories that will be announced on Tuesday is Brazil - one of the world's five biggest emitters of methane.

While the countries like China, Russia and India, which are also top-five methane emitters, have not signed on to the pledge. Those countries were all included on a list identified as targets to join the pledge, previously reported by Reuters.

Since it was first announced in September with a handful of signatories, the United States and European Union have worked to get the world's biggest methane emitters to join the partnership, Reuters report added.

Right now, the United States is still the world's biggest oil and gas producer, while the EU is the biggest importer of gas.

The United States will be releasing oil and gas methane regulations this week. The EU and Canada both plan to reveal the methane legislation addressing the energy sector later this year of 2021.
