Latest Methane Stories
Ocean temperatures around the world are increasing and one consequence of those rising temperatures is the release of methane from the sea floor off the coast of Washington.
Many abandoned wells have long been forgotten, but a new study from Princeton University has found that these wells are collectively leaking significant amounts of the greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere.
Natural gas power plants produce substantial amounts of gases that lead to global warming. Replacing old coal-fired power plants with new natural gas plants could cause climate damage to increase over the next decades, unless their methane leakage rates are very low and the new power plants are very efficient.

Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
