Mother Earth Suspect in Own Murder Conspiracy

Large Amounts of Methane Discovered
Seeping from Atlantic Sea Bed 

"Scientists have discovered methane gas bubbling from the sea floor in an unexpected place: off the East Coast of the United States where the continental shelf meets the deeper Atlantic Ocean.
“This is a large amount of methane seepage in an area we didn’t expect. That raises new questions for us.”
The methane is emanating from at least 570 locations, called seeps, from near Cape Hatteras, N.C., to the Georges Bank southeast of Nantucket, Mass. While the seepage is widespread, the researchers estimated that the amount of gas was tiny compared with the amount released from all sources each year. In a paper published online Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience, the scientists, including Adam Skarke of Mississippi State University and Carolyn Ruppel of the United States Geological Survey, reported evidence that the seepage had been going on for at least 1,000 years.
Methane is a potent, if relatively short-lived, greenhouse gas, so the discovery should aid the study of an issue of concern to climate scientists: the potential for the release of huge stores of methane on land and under the seas as warming of the atmosphere and oceans continues.
“It highlights a really key area where we can test some of the more radical hypotheses about climate change,” said John Kessler, a professor at the University of Rochester who was not involved in the research."

  2. Well, that's inconvenient. Like the thousands of cubic miles of coal cinder formations in Australia that indicate coal seam fires burning, releasing CO2 continuously, in vast quantities, for millennia. And they want us to live in the stone age because any CO2 we make is baaaaaaaaaad. I say we protest with loud, smoke belching motorsports! Yahooo!

  3. I think Mother Earth is laughing at every liberal progressive global warming proponent as she belches out untold trillions of cubic feet of methane gas around the globe just to emphasize you can't control Mother Earth. Of course liberal progressives continue to deny the reality of Mother Earth's behavior and try to sell the idea that global warming can be controlled by man. Pure insanity, but it sells among the cognitively disordered masses.
