Drilling operations at several natural gas wells in southwestern Pennsylvania released methane into the atmosphere at rates that were 100 to 1,000 times greater than federal regulators had estimated, new research shows. Using a plane that was specially equipped to measure greenhouse gas emissions in the air, scientists found that drilling activities at seven well pads in the booming Marcellus shale formation emitted 34 grams of methane per second, on average. The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that such drilling releases between 0.04 grams and 0.30 grams of methane per second.

Dear SOS: I just returned from a lovely stay at the Savoy Hotel in London. For tea, we had the most wonderful scones that I have ever had. Do you think the pastry chef would share the recipe? Suzanne Cole Los Angeles Dear Suzanne: These adorable scones, delicate, flaky and not overly sweet, may look small, but they pack a lot of flavor. Buttermilk lends a subtle tang, enhancing the richness of the egg and butter, and a bit of dried or candied fruit adds a nice surprise with every bite.

This week's SOS comes from Wenise Wong in Los Angeles: "Just back from some choice New York City restaurants and hoping to replicate in L.A.: Any chance you could get the recipe for the compost cookie from Momofuku ? Thanks for taking requests!" These cookies are like taking every single one of my favorite snacks and packaging them in a simple, compact, magical treat. Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coffee, graham cracker crust, pretzels and even potato chips are tossed in with a rich cookie dough to turn out something truly inspired.
