The article focuses on the need to reduce methane levels in Australia. It notes that the methane emission growth rate is back down to zero after a growth spurt that lasted from 2006-2009. However, methane problem continuously sparks in the country which brought a significant contribution to global warming during the industrial period. In result, policy makers and scientists calls for the extention of reduce methane emissions to start limits methane's climate impact.
