This is the kind of biased reportage that gives the news media a bad name. The statement "..a 40 fold increase in......from May to June" is totally devoid of meaning without also giving the concentration, either of the normal background, or of the measured higher level. An increase from one part-per-trillion to 40 parts-per-trillion is of no environmental impact, while one of from one part-per-million to 40 parts per million is environmentally significant.
Shame on either the reporters of this story or to the author of the study for taking this tack.
