Scientists Argue That Methane from the Gulf Oil Spill Was Not Eaten by Microbes →


From Inhabitat:

Last year, in the midst of the Deepwater Horizon crisis in the Gulf of Mexico, we wrote about a study that said that microbes in the Gulf had consumed a lot of the rogue oil plume caused by the disaster. Now a group of scientists have joined together to argue against those findings. They have published a comment in the May 27th issue of the journal Science that points out flaws in the original study and other data from oil and methane leaks around the world that prove microbes in the ocean aren’t capable of consuming large quantities of oil or methane.
