Abstract

Detrended correlation analysis in the sample period 1984-2013 shows no evidence that annual changes in atmospheric methane net of oxidation losses are responsive at an annual time scale to human activities having to do with enteric fermentation, rice cultivation, hydropower generation, and hydrocarbon extraction.

Keywords: climate change, global warming, greenhouse gases, greenhouse effect, methane, CH4, anthropogenic methane emissions, methane emissions from hydrocarbon extraction, oil and gas production, EPA regulations on methane emissions, climate action plan, strategy to reduce methane emissions, hydropower gener
