The Senate Stinks
Scientists have discovered that large amounts of methane are escaping from a remote area of the Arctic Ocean. Methane is a potent climate warming element.
An international scientific team reports about seven million tonnes of methane currently escaping from the East Siberian Arctic Shelf is comparable to the amount currently escaping the entire world’s oceans.
But the Siberian coast has some competition.
In related news, Canadian journalists have discovered that the idea to change the Canadian national anthem escaped from Nancy Ruth, a feminist, Conservative Senator from Ontario.
The dim-witted proposal moved a political team of journalists to confirm that the Senate continues to be the largest source of escaping methane known to man…or woman.
