Methane: The Hidden Danger in Landfills ⚠️

Landfills have emerged as a significant contributor to methane pollution, ranking as the third-largest source in the US. With the launch of MethaneSAT and similar satellites, detecting methane emissions from space has become more accessible.
This technology provides crucial data to scientists, policymakers, and the public, highlighting the urgency of addressing methane emissions to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis. It underscores the collective responsibility to curb methane pollution, emphasizing the need for proactive measures to combat global warming and reduce waste.

      This is great news! I remember there was a newspaper saying they are gonna collaborate with google so that everyone can see the methane emissions from your phone. Looking forward to that day!
