    Also see => Shale Gas Bulletin Ireland and search for “methane”

    The operative word is could be, maybe, possible which applies to all the conclusions. It is possible the little people released a lot of methane as well.

      WHAT T F are you talking about? What little people? The ones that come out on St. Patrick’s day?

      Context matters. If your Aunt Patootie posted could-be/maybe/possible on a Facebook diatribe feel free to roll your eyes. It’s very different when someone with in-depth familiarity with what possibilities have already been eliminated and the known mechanisms for methane production from natural and anthropic sources.

      I think I’ve developed “disgust fatigue” with all the Creationists, anti-vaxxers and AGW deniers being dismissive of those stupid (or venal) scientists who, despite working in an area at great depth for a long time, have somehow overlooked some glaringly obvious factoid someone else found on the Internet.
