Step On A Crack...

Break your mother's... planet.

Cracks in the Earth--okay not the kind in sidewalks--may be contributing to global warming, according to discovery news.
Whether devastating faults, dank caves or mud cracks on a drying desert plain, Earth's surface is riddled with fractures. Now a new study had found that the cracks exhale large quantities of gas, perhaps enough to affect global warming. (
So it's not all because of my giant SUV. Take that environmentalists!

In other news, the Earth may be looking at another mass extinction. More on that tomorrow.
