72. Swamp gas is mostly just methane.

A few other compound, but it's methane that's the cause of the glow or fire.

It can be produced by a few things. But still some will call it "swamp gas." Or marsh gas.

There are areas around here that were built on landfill. There are pipes going down to the landfill. The pipes burp methane. Strictly speaking that could be called "swamp gas."

We'll leave aside that I think of Houston as a giant swamp and consider that an eccentricity of mine.
