According to an article appearing today in Zeitung fur Physiologik und Abführmittel, scientists at Heidelberg University have discovered that 90%+ of the atmospheric methane present in today's atmosphere has been emitted within the last ten years. The source of the largest emitter is, according to Professor Dietrich Rosen of the Department of Abführmittel, "is somewhere in Southern Ohio of the United States."
Satellite studies confirm the hypothesis, which Dr. Rosen began work upon in 2002. In the past, says Dr. Rosen, studies have blamed "everything from the cow farts to factories."
Working with a grant from the German government and the European Space Agency, Dr. Rosen and his team expect to pinpoint the exact location of the emitter within the next few months.
