Methane levels

A quick take of the map shows that a good bit of surface methane (above) comes from Europe and Asia. Forgive me if my geography is wrong but is the red spot Baghdad? If so can we blame global warming on sunni insurgents? Looks like America, which produces a lot of beef, has much lower levels of methane. The bottom graph is stratospheric levels of methane. From Wikipedia.

    don’t you love the new subject labels? Wonder how many posts we’ll have under the category, “cow flatulence?”

    Argentina is a pretty large cattle producer, but other than that the methane levels would appear to be almost completely unrelated to cattle production.

    Well…there…you…go.

    and the other hotspot looks less like Baghdad than say…Turkey, or Georgia.

    Who knows?
