Science News: Study: Natural gas surge won't slow global warming

FILE - In this Aug. 6, 2011 file photo, a natural gas well operated by Northeast Natural Energy is seen in Morgantown, W.Va.

By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Kangaroos hop, right? Well, not all of them.

The study focused on a group of big-bodied, short-faced kangaroos called sthenurines that lived in Australia from about 13 million years ago until about 30,000 years ago, disappearing after the first humans arrived on the continent. ...
