- 494 days ago -
There has been five mass extinctions in our planets history due to either asteroid impacts, climate change caused by volcanism and the shifting of tectonic plates. The sixth mass extinction is being fueled by you and me.
Is The Arctic Methane Situation Really As Bad As Headlines Make It?
Science & Tech  (tags: climate-change, Is, The Arctic, Methane, Situation, Really As, Bad As, Headlines, Make It? )

- 1389 days ago -
A few days ago the "shocking" headlines came out, describing some new research on how much methane is now seeping out of the Arctic seafloor--a greenhouse gas far more potent than carbon dioxide, but much shorter lived in the atmosphere--as the region warm
Methane From Oil Spill Migrating Undigested?

- 1690 days ago -
The blowout of BP's Macondo well didn't just spew some 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico last year. Lots of methane also whooshed out, some 500,000 tons in all, according to an estimate published last week. What happened to the methane?
