Could there be life on jupiter?

It has been said that Jupiter have masses of gigantic thunderstorm every second.

It seemed to me that this could spark new lifeforms since this is how we believed the earth has been long time ago.

Interestingly, both Arthur C. Clarke and Iain M. Banks have written Sci-Fi novels featuring life forms that developed and evolved in the mid/upper atmospheres of gas giants.  In these regions, the pressure is not too great and the chemistry seems plausible for life to develop, so life on Jupiter, and the other gas giants, doesn't seem to be an impossibility.
