…but somehow familiar – Something that not everyone knows is that an odor of rotten eggs can signal a sudden outsourcing of methane gas, due to global warming. Well, that smell has been in the St. Louis area recently.
Authorities say that it’s not dangerous and it?s NOT a natural gas leak. In the January 26th edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Carolyn Tuft quotes St. Louis Fire Department Captain Robert Keuss as saying, “On Sunday, we responded to 20 calls all across the city and that was just from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m? It doesn’t have that natural gas smell to it. The smell has hit a pretty widespread area, but no one has been able to determine its origin.”
