|Phosphine discovered in the upper atmosphere of Venus by a Japanese orbiter.|
Phosphine is considered a biomarker because it is difficult to make by ordinary chemical means.

Not really that difficult, considering the conditions on Venus. I do not consider this a biomarker.
Phosphorous acid can be prepared by reacting phosphorous with sulfuric acid (there is plenty of that in the clouds of Venus). From there, it is a simple process to convert that into phosphine through the action of strong sunlight or heat.
Apparently, there is enough phosphor on Venus to react with the sulfur there.

|I don't know much about chemistry, especially phosphine, except for what i just read on wikipedia. Wiki says that it takes a lot of energy to make phosphine .|
What are you qualifications to say that phosphine is easy to make in venus's environment?
This is almost funny. A quick search suggests that why soda pop is so acid is because of phosphoric acid. That would be a byproduct of phosphine and aluminum.
This is interesting because legislation was passed in Arizona which was said to not be legal because of the way it was passed. There was legislation was being pursued to ban aluminum cans because they posed a health risk to humans. This would explain why.
Did a check and they say that a thin lining of plastic is in aluminum cans giving off BPA.
If anyone is an environmentalist, better filters for contaminants is needed. Yet some will say we can't make that cost effective. And if someone can do it, then prove them wrong. Why the US is falling apart.
