1   ( SEEING ) METHANE aims to raise awareness

about an otherwise invisible, odorless greenhouse gas — methane —

and to further understand this leading greenhouse gas

as a direct contributor to global climate change

2   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

3   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

4   By figuratively transporting a small portion of

the SCHULTZ landfill in Cheektowaga ( SEEING) METHANE
