D leak in the gas pipe lines
The methane gas is one of the greenhouse gases, which causes increase in temperature of Earth's surface. This leads to melting of snow and ice caps. This causes increase in sea level. The main reason behind the presence of methane gas in the atmosphere is biomass (organic matter) decay, leak in gas pipe lines, and gas exploration in mines. Burning of fuels give out carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide gases.
