What does this entail now?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77679633


Natural - not 'man made'. What does this entail? Try a super concentrated extremely effective gas that traps heat.

I am not a believer in global warming due to 'man made' issues expecially after the Michael Mann 'hockey stick' corrupt data he fed to the U.N. to alarm people back in the late 90's.

Methane is the one gas we do not want flowing freely as it is from the atmosphere - unless you want things to get hotter and hotter.

No idea what the solution is. Out of my pay scale.
 Quoting: IJumpInIt


Why not drill, cap, and tap the methane to relieve the pressure causing it to bubble...??

Ground penetrating radar would need to be used to find the scope and extent of the gas field on the sea bottom, and then through the use of horizontal drilling, it could be safely tapped from a distance without exploding the whole thing!

A well like that might even be worth some money!

I'm in eastern NC.

We've been smelling a lot of a propane/methane type smell at night outside especially from about 10pm to 2am and couldn't find out where it's coming from. (serious)

This may be it.

The ice caps will all be gone in 12 years methane is rising out of the water and ground all over the world ice age is coming

Warn the ships

Stay away

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30678126


This is quite dangerous to shipping. I saw a video of experimental sinking of boats to prove that methane bubbles in sea water is responsible for the mystery of ships suddenly sinking. It was believed that the water, being made less dense with entrained gas, no longer could support the boats and they sank. You know the physics law that allows boats and other things to float.
 Quoting: Ballsy


pretty sure the east coast has an intercoastal waterway much like the Gulf Coast does. It runs behind barrier island and though bays. I could be wrong about the Carlolina coast. The Florida east coast has one.

The Biggest Methane Leak in America Is in New Mexico ...

Researchers using satellite data have pinpointed New Mexico's San Juan Basin as a major source of leaking methane in the United States.

The region was responsible for 10 percent of all the methane emissions from the natural gas sector in the country, according to a study published yesterday in Geophysical Research Letters. If gas, coal mining and petroleum sectors are included, the San Juan Basin was responsible for 5 percent of the emissions.

The region emitted 0.59 million metric tons of methane every year between 2003 and 2009, the study found. That rate is three times the amount reported in the European Union's greenhouse gas inventory, called EDGAR. It is 1.8 times the reported value in U.S. EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program.

Re: BREAKING: Field of methane bubbling plumes discovered off North Carolina coast
Methane hydrate IS a potential problem.

As an engineer, I prefer to focus on real solutions. Simply eliminating humans and reducing carbon dioxide emissions to near zero is NOT a preferred solution, especially when there are lots of other, better solutions:

1. Increasing CO2 is inevitable. We cannot even reverse our own CO2 let alone China, India, et al.

2. IF, and that is a big IF, CO2 becomes a problem, we CAN sequester it using natural, biological means.

3. Excess carbon belongs in our soil. Natives in the Amazon basin did this thousands of years ago to improve the poor soil of the jungle using bio char. They used the plentiful vegetation to add bio char, i.e., charcoal, to the soil in great quantities.

4. However, we don't even need trees to create bio char. It can be done efficiently using row cropping and crop wastes such as corn stalks. There are machines that chop, char, and bury bio char as they move through the fields after harvest.

Fuel is only needed to begin the process. After that, the machine can use the flammable gases given off by the cooking bio char for fuel.

5. If you want to create your own bio char without a machine, dig a trench, add dry wood chips on top of burning brush, and then cover with wet soil. The chips will char underground.

6. I have created bio char in a steel drum and added it to my fruit trees. Those treated with bio char are out producing the others. Plants love bio char in the soil. Soil organisms thrive in this environment.

7. Bio char sequesters carbon for up to several thousand years. You can still find it in the Amazon and elsewhere. Who knew the natives were so clever?

8. The oceans also sequester huge amounts of CO2. Experiments adding trace minerals such as iron have shown explosive growth in algae and fish populations. As dead plants drop into deep, cold water, CO2 is sequestered naturally just as has happened for billions of years on this planet. The extra fish to feed humans is a bonus.

Conclusion: We should capture and use the methane hydrate to eliminate this "threat". As we turn it into CO2, we can sequester it and improve our soil at the same time. Better soil means better nutrition for humans.

Well shit...

AIRBORNE RESEARCH SHOWS EAST COAST CITIES EMITTING TWICE AS MUCH METHANE AS ESTIMATED

Now, a new NOAA and University of Michigan study using an instrumented airplane has found unexpectedly large emissions over five major cities along the East Coast - twice the total amount of methane and almost 10 times the amount estimated from natural gas. The work was published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Hmm. My wife has a row of rose bushes. One of them seems to go bezerk compared to the others. It's the one I dump the fireplace ash on in the winter. Never put that together until now.
