A bit of journalistic irony. Last week I groused that a new paper on methane from plants was getting very little attention in the press, despite the fact that it refutes a 2006 paper published in Nature that got lots of press. I wished aloud that the situation would be set right. Well, five days later, a few more sites have published the press release, but I’ve only seen one new piece of original reporting.
It appears in the news section of today’s issue of Nature. Hats off to Nature for making room for some uncomfortable news.
