SAVE THE POLAR BEARS, NUKE THE ARCTIC!:
Global warming? Scientists find methane source in Arctic seas.:Researchers have located large emissions of the greenhouse gas methane from the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. They now want to determine if the emissions are tied to global warming. (Peter N. Spotts, March 4, 2010 , CS Monitor))
Scientists studying global warming in the Arctic have discovered a previously unknown source of methane working its way into the atmosphere, a source that is releasing large amounts of the gas each year.Posted by Orrin Judd at March 4, 2010 6:09 PM
Methane is, molecule for molecule, a far more potent global-warming gas than carbon dioxide. The newly discovered emissions are welling up from the continental shelf off Siberia's northern coast.
