I am writing a project on climate change and would like to know why methane is 20-25 time more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide?
Any ideas? References needed. Thank you, Jane

@jmducane,
Check out the infrared absorption spectrum of methane vs Co2 and water vapor.

Co2 shares much of water's absorption.
