News in Levels, Methane and the world´s temperature – level 2

Methane and the world´s temperature – level 2

Methane is an invisible gas which has no smell. Scientists discovered that methane had much more warming power than carbon dioxide, another gas. Methane caused about 25% of the increase in the global temperature.

People can avoid about 30% of the warming, which scientists expect in the next decades, but they won't need to make any big changes. The reason is that oil and gas fields spill methane into the air, and sometimes they do not even know about it.

Scientists and so-called methane hunters go around the oil fields, and they find gas leaks. They use a special camera that can see the methane leaking out of pipes and tools which control the flow in the pipes. This is very important because people finally started to see methane as a problem, and they can do something about it.

Difficult words: invisible (something what people cannot see), avoid (to keep away from something), leak (when something comes out through a hole or crack).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Methane is an invisible gas which has no smell. メタンは臭いのない目に見えないガスです。 Scientists discovered that methane had much more warming power than carbon dioxide, another gas. 科学者たちは、メタンが別のガスである二酸化炭素よりもはるかに多くの温暖化力を持っていることを発見しました。 Ученые обнаружили, что метан обладает гораздо большей согревающей способностью, чем углекислый газ, другой газ. Methane caused about 25% of the increase in the global temperature. メタンは、地球の気温上昇の約 25% を引き起こしました。

People can avoid about 30% of the warming, which scientists expect in the next decades, but they won't need to make any big changes. 人々は、科学者が今後数十年で期待する温暖化の約30%を回避できますが、大きな変更を加える必要はありません。 Люди могут избежать примерно 30% потепления, которое ожидают ученые в ближайшие десятилетия, но им не нужно будет вносить какие-то большие изменения. The reason is that oil and gas fields spill methane into the air, and sometimes they do not even know about it. その理由は、油田とガス田がメタンを空気中にこぼし、時にはそれについてさえ知らないからです。 Причина в том, что нефтяные и газовые месторождения выбрасывают метан в воздух, а иногда об этом даже не подозревают. Razlog za to je, da se na naftnih in plinskih poljih metan sprošča v zrak, včasih pa za to niti ne vedo.

Scientists and so-called methane hunters go around the oil fields, and they find gas leaks. 科学者やいわゆるメタンハンターが油田を巡回し、ガス漏れを発見します。 They use a special camera that can see the methane leaking out of pipes and tools which control the flow in the pipes. 彼らは、パイプから漏れるメタンとパイプ内の流れを制御するツールを見ることができる特別なカメラを使用しています。 This is very important because people finally started to see methane as a problem, and they can do something about it. 人々はついにメタンを問題と見なし始め、彼らはそれについて何かをすることができるので、これは非常に重要です。 Это очень важно, потому что люди, наконец, начали рассматривать метан как проблему, и они могут что-то с этим сделать.

Difficult words: invisible (something what people cannot see), avoid (to keep away from something), leak (when something comes out through a hole or crack). 難しい言葉:invisible(人に見えないもの)、avoid(遠ざけること)、leak(穴やひび割れから何かが出てくること)。
