Yes. Methane can be produced by a variety of things. Coal, agriculture, wastewater treatment, enteric fermentation, biomass combustion, stationary and mobile combustion (cars), gas and oil production, and manure management. Plus, the latest data I could find was from 2012, things may be different now.
