There, an international array of scientists has been investigating widening areas of open water that are disgorging millions of tons of methane each year. Given that methane, molecule for molecule, has at least 20 times the heat-trapping properties of carbon dioxide, it’s important to get a handle on whether these are new releases, the first foretaste of some great outburst from thawing sea-bed stores of the gas, or simply a longstanding phenomenon newly observed. If you read the Independent of Britain, you’d certainly be thinking the worst.
