Giant Bubble of Methane Poised to Belch Forth From Arctic Ice

New Scientist:

Billions of tonnes of the greenhouse gas methane are trapped just below the surface of the East Siberian Arctic shelf. Melting means the area is poised to deliver a giant gaseous belch at any moment—one that could bring global warming forward 35 years and cost the equivalent of almost a year’s global GDP.

It sounds more like a fart to me—the biggest, most expensive fart of all time. I make fart jokes because it hurts if I don’t.
