ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GDT TEK, Inc.
Researchers have pinpointed the timing of the start of an ancient global warming episode known as the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum (PETM).
Marine scientists cast doubt on Thursday about an earlier study that found bacteria had consumed nearly all of the methane that leaked into the Gulf of Mexico amid last yearâ€™s BP oil spill.
A technical comment published in the current (May 27) edition of the journal Science casts doubt on a widely publicized study that concluded that a bacterial bloom in the Gulf of Mexico consumed the methane discharged from the Deepwater Horizon well.

Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas.
A new University of Georgia study that is the first to examine comprehensively the magnitude of hydrocarbon gases released during the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico oil discharge has found that up to 500,000 tons of gaseous hydrocarbons were emitted into the deep ocean.
An international team of scientists has released data indicating that greenhouse gas uptake by continents is less than previously thought because of methane emissions from freshwater areas.
40,000 years ago rapid warming led to an increase in methane concentration.
