The article focuses on a study conducted by scientists at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration regarding gas flaring or the burning of unwanted gas which is a major contributor to global warming. It was found that global flaring emits 400 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. The report documented Russia and Nigeria as the worst offenders, followed by Iran and Iraq. Some Middle East countries like United Arab Emirates and Qatar have introduced measures to reduce flaring.
