Methane Chex-Mix

This methane-bomb-in-the-Arctic story has a lot of updates.

We have had 2 recent posts here on it (1, 2) and today added a rebuttal to the ‘bomb’ theory to our post on the parent blog, The Flying Cuttlefish.

So it may not be the big threat they said. And we have these recent items –

Earthquakes trigger undersea methane reservoirs: study

” . . . .One of the cores has now been found to contain methane hydrates — a solid ice-like crystalline structure of methane and water — only 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) below the sea floor.
Also uncovered were tell-tale signatures from water between sediment grains, and concentrations of a mineral called barite.
Together, these suggested that methane had surged up through the sea bed in recent decades.”

We have more on this creepy plan at the Flying Cuttlefish.

If there is more in the news this week it will get put here.

  1. Please tell me that the event on LA 12 at 12:52 CDT was a truck, because if it was it was a big one, it showed up to some degree on ALL helicorders except LA 10 mid & bottom.

      • There’s something funny going on between 15:30 CDT – 15:45 CDT…

        Both LA 10 surface & mid jumped the tracks…

        La 10 surface ( +30 mins )
        LA 10 mid ( +60 mins )

        and along with LA 17 284m, all three have one or more ‘spikes’ on the line.

        Most of the other helicorders show some form of activity during the period in question.

      • It’s you who should be thanked…

        For doing this blog, and giving us a chance to express ourselves and possibly influence any message that is getting out to the world.

      • I wonder what suddenly prompted the parish officials to hand out a chunk of information about the doings today.
        It looks like another end-run around Texas Brine who used to post updates.
