One thought on “It Can’t Rain All The Time”

  1. There’s a related news item at Methane makers yield to science which says:

    The genetic code of an important group of methane-producing microbes has been sequenced by German scientists.

    The archaea are probably the major source of methane emanating from rice fields, contributing up to a quarter of global emissions of the gas.

    The article goes on to say that an archaea group called Rice Cluster I (RC-I) is probably responsible and then ends:

    Some researchers hold out hope that some of the methane traces observed on Mars, for example, may be coming from organisms like RC-I.
