The structural formula for methane

This is a space filling model showing the chemical structure of methane. The size of each atom is determined by its Van der Waals radius and the relative positions faithfully reproduce the structure of the molecule. Colors follow traditional conventions used in popular molecular visualization software (e.g. Jmol).

Methane is the second most significant greenhouse gas being produced by humans.
