in the global warming of global greenhouse gas emissions, the global warming pace of the moment, the study of global warming and seek solutions has become an important issue for scientists.previously, some scientists have pushed some of the global warming responsibility to cattle and other ruminants, accusing them of greenhouse gas emissions accounted for a larger share of the world.now, scientists once again found that seafood may also escape its responsibility.recently, some scientists have found that there is a large amount of methane emissions in the baltic sea in europe.
, methane is a very harmful greenhouse gas, the greenhouse effect is more than 20 times the carbon dioxide.so they tried to figure out the source of these methane.after the study found that the baltic sea oysters, mussels and other seafood is the culprit, their annual release of methane accounted for 10% of global methane.oysters, we are familiar with one of the oysters, and we eat it!...
the mussels are called mussels, in other words, these familiar seafood may be harming our planet.10% of methane emissions this is an extremely large amount, the researchers estimate that this methane emissions equivalent to 20,000 cows.equivalent to 10% of the number of english welsh cows, while the baltic sea accounts for only 0.1% of the earth's oceans.
dr.stefano bonaglia from the university of stockholm says that although it sounds funny , but they are determined by means of isotope calibration and other means, the production of methane is due to the shellfish digestive system in the decomposition of food when the bacteria produced.dr.ernest chi fru of the earth and marine science at cardiff university said that this is a puzzling situation, the baltic sea accounts for only 0.1% of the earth's ocean, which means that on a global scale, the earth's ocean bottom surviving a large number of seemingly harmless shellfish may cause large amounts of greenhouse gases to be released into the atmosphere, but that is not the case.greenhouse gas emissions are not so serious, according to this result, there are many methane gas drop unknown.
in fact, these small and large numbers of creatures may be ignored by the scientific community , they may play an important role in regulating greenhouse gas emissions in the earth's oceans, and this result may also lead scientists to begin reporting on the marine sector's breeding of shellfish such as oysters, mussels and clams consider carefully.
