Controversial film-maker and polemicist, Michael Moore, produces 60% of the world's methane, experts revealed last night.
However it could mark the end of the world if he ever unleashes even a fraction of the monstrous amount of gas which scientist believe he contains within him.
Alarms were first raised when Moore farted in bed last month and killed all known life forms within a two mile radius. Reports state they died a long painful death with their faces contorted in agony.
Despite the authorities evacuating the whole state and two neighboring ones as a precaution, the film maker denies it was his doing.
"I didn't supply it." He told reporters in chemical warfare suits "The responsibility for that belongs to the rich and powerful, Republicans, Fox News, George Bush and Dick Cheney. In other words, those who smelt it, dealt it."
But Government scientists disagree. I met with a gas-masked Dr. Clive Jones, world-renowned authority, in his bunker at an undisclosed location.
"We've known for years that Moore was the world's top producer of hot air" he said " But we are really really worried if he should ever seriously fire one out after a late night curry. It could be the end of life on earth."
