These results provoked a strong reaction in the scientific community, because before that it was believed that methane from living organisms can select only certain types of bacteria in the absence of oxygen. A typical example are microorganisms that live in the stomach of ruminants. The authors of the new work suggest that methane, which scientists have observed in previous experiments, was not the product of plant life, and formed by processes of decay in the soil, absorbed by plants, and stood out. In their experiments the scientists as a source of nutrition for the plants to use the medium containing no organic substances. Plants were placed in separate chambers in which the measured methane content.

The researchers have not detected the release of dangerous gas. In order to finally confirm their findings in the latest phase of the experiment, scientists used for watering plants water containing dissolved methane. Additional information is available at MasterClass. In this case, measuring the concentration of this gas in chambers with plants have shown that it exists. Nisbet and colleagues suggest that the plants supplied methane absorption in the atmosphere through transpiration – water allocation, mainly through the leaves. Thus, plants are agents of methane, but they do not release it.

In the ocean again formed climatic phenomenon La Nina, recently scientists were able to establish that in the Pacific Ocean again formed climatic phenomenon called La Nina, which are responsible for the high average annual temperatures of air and water in 2008 year. Effect of La Nini is due to an accumulation of cold water in the central Pacific Ocean. Climatic implications of this buildup can be very diverse. For example, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Research predicts that in the coming months in Indonesia should expect high rainfall in the south-western United States there will be a threat of flooding. Earlier, a message appears stating, that the water in the central part of the Pacific began to warm up, then there is the impact of last year's La Nini beginning to wane, but now the situation is suddenly reversed, and the effect of La Nina manifested itself again.

Artificial Trees

The Russian government approved a water strategy. Severe floods paralyzed the north-west Turkey. In France, there will be taxes on carbon dioxide emissions. Plants purify the air of ozone. Myanmar has detected turtles, considered extinct. Mankind has moved away from a global environmental disaster in 11 minutes.

In Brazil – the campaign for the preservation of ecosystem savannah in India – a census of tigers. To combat climate change Send 'artificial trees'. In Sweden, will the batteries from the algae. Photofact Week: Amazing eyes of the animal world. Overview of events for the week of 07/09/2009 to 13/09/2009. In Myanmar, found the skull, were considered extinct special expedition found in bamboo thickets impenetrable reserve one of Myanmar's five turtle species, which was considered extinct.

Arakan forest turtle, or as it is called in the vernacular 'Pyant Cheezar ', did not meet in the wild more than a hundred years. Earlier Arakan Turtle were very popular among residents of Myanmar. Animals used in food, were made from these medications. As a result, the population of turtles has been almost completely destroyed. Now scientists hope that the discovered specimens demonstrate the revival of the species. Last week we told you about a unique case of the 'snail's life' – of a wounded turtle Lucky, who lost her front legs after a meeting with a wild raccoon. American vets have returned to normal life wounded Lakki, fashioned out of coasters for furniture original prostheses for turtles. Humanity moved away from a global environmental disaster in 11 minutes peculiar eco-clock showing an approximation of humanity to a global environmental catastrophe that would call into question the very existence of man on Earth, for the first time since 2005 have been translated into 11 minutes away from disaster.
