It turns out that your Christmas tree could be a super-greenhouse gas crusader! Who knew?!

Xmas Trees Absorb ‘Super’ Greenhouse Gas: Your Christmas tree and its brethren are absorbing methane, a super greenhouse gas that they were previously suspected of emitting. In fact, previous studies put the global methane output by plants at between 62 and 236 teragrams each year. That’s not small potatoes (if you will pardon the vegetable pun), but 10 to 30 percent of all methane entering the atmosphere.
