"It is possible to synthesize excited bromide in an argon matrix! Yes, it’s an excimer, frozen in its excited state … As soon as we apply a field, we couple to a state that is radiatively coupled to the ground state" - Chris Knight, "Real Genius"
A few weeks ago I wrote a little about global warming and the book "State of Fear". The overriding theme is that very little is known about global warming. Case in point - Methane is considered to be one of the largest contributors to global warming. And what contributes 10 to 30 percents of all methane? No, not your butt (I'm sure it's a close 2nd). It's plants. Somehow this has gone overlooked until just recently.
