                                ( SEEING ) METHANE raises awareness about

an otherwise invisible, odorless greenhouse gas —

methane — & to further understand this leading

greenhouse gas as a direct contributor to global climate change

                      Although methane does not linger in the atmosphere

as long as carbon dioxide does (arguably the most common

greenhouse gas) it is far more devastating to the climate ---  since

it readily absorbs heat & is more abundant than any greenhouse gas

 

                        Nearly 25% of global warming is caused by methane

emissions — and much of these emissions are emitted by landfills, 

which are not remotely understood (nor even recognized) by the general public

                                  By figuratively transporting a small portion of

the SCHULTZ landfill in Cheektowaga ( SEEING)

(a)  view interviews of actual residents living near Schultz landfill

(b)  hear recorded phone conversations between the collaborators

      & the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation

(c)  measure methane with a working prototype of a methane sensor

(d)  witness an infomercial for the Methane Harvesting Kit —

a speculative “utility tool” used for capturing & storing methane-infused air
