Increasing methane in the atmosphere traps the sun's heat at 20 times that of CO2. There are many causes to the increasing methane from man made reasons such as landfills, cattle, rice paddies, fracking to natural causes such as the increasing amount of volcanoes. Once the heat increases, the more methane releases. As methane builds up in the atmosphere it traps the sun's heat. Long wave infrared from the sun enters our atmosphere and heats up the surface of the planet but it safely bounces back out to space as short wave infrared, but with the build up of methane, it is trapping in the short wave infrared, thus causing an increase in global temperature much worse than CO2, possibly causing a more rapid global warming.
