Long revered for their beneficial role in soil fertility, earthworms contribute to global warming by increasing greenhouse gas emissions, according to a team that includes a University of California, Davis, scientist.

"There was a hypothesis that earthworms were having a positive effect on the greenhouse balance, but they don't," said co-author of the study, Johan Six, a plant sciences professor at UC Davis during the research. Six is now a professor in Zurich, Switzerland.

Great Grandpa Worm was 4 miles long and ate primitive wingless chicken with hairy feathers which contributed to green house gases that now color the trees of Switzerland.
