Methane on Mars (Keeps Increasing!)

Every time a measurement is made – the methane level rises.

Most people on this Forum think I’m a loon. I’m a loon that gets it right an awful lot of the time;
From the below Physics link;

“Anyone wanna take a guess?”

I wrote;
”Groundwater (or Methane)”.

Gee, I got BOTH right.

Methane dismissed by “stooge” Vittorio Formisani (what a NASA MUPPET!);

Clouds near Viking 2 Lander’s Landing Site;

That MGS (MOC) image clears up nicely some of my “outstanding” claims from 1989 (that atmospheric water vapour, ie. Clouds, was detected by Viking 2 Lander).

The following passage comes from page 190 of the book “Mars At Last!” by Mark Washburn, 1977.

“Around JPL, there were rumours that methane had been found in the Martian atmosphere – a biologically produced gas. ‘The CIA is not involved in this,’ said Tobey Owen. ‘We didn’t see any methane.’”

Well, they not only measured the methane, they BURIED the results.
Denials that lasted 27 years, doesn’t make the truth any easier for “Scientists” who proclaim they seek truth.

Jim Martin (Viking Project Leader) was on the payroll of the CIA.

Methane? The only natural sources for it that I know of are biological decomposition and vulcanism. Methane also has 21 times the Greenhouse Warming Potential (GWP) of CO2. Interesting. Methane's also present in the outer planets and moons... dunno much about their composition and chemistry though.

Come to think of it, if there is active volcanic activity on Mars and there's not much of a magnetic field, I'd like to see these geologists hold together the dynamo theory for Earth's magnetic field (a pet hate of mine).
