Mee-thane

Well, that's how the announcer on the BBC news pronounced it last night. We call it meth-ane here in the States.

Anyway, scientists are up in Siberia (you know, where people are always threatened to be sent in cold war movies). Apparently Siberia's permafrost, well, it' ain't. It's melting. Yup, and you've got a ton of lakes there literally bubbling away - spewing 40,000 year-old methane into the air, which will accelerate global warming.
