  1. NASA Scientists use satellite data to find Methane Hot Spot in United StatesRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 12, 2014 | Clarksville Online

    One small "hot spot" in the U.S. Southwest is responsible for producing the largest concentration of the greenhouse gas methane seen over the United States - more than triple the standard ground-based estimate - according to a new study of satellite data by scientists at NASA and the University of Michigan. Methane is very efficient at trapping heat in the atmosphere and, like carbon dioxide, it contributes to global warming.
