Are methane hydrates dissolving?

The average temperatures of the atmosphere are rising; the average temperatures of the oceans, too. Not only living organisms react sensititvely to these changes. The transitional zones between shallow shelf seas and the deep sea at continental slopes store a huge amount of methane hydrates in the sea bed

“According to scientists, a New Madrid earthquake measuring over 7.5 on the Richter scale could generally be expected to take place every 200 to 300 years. Such a quake now would trigger destruction in up to twenty states and cause billions of dollars in damage at population centers.”

    • I have been following La. Sinkhole Bugle for over a year now,have read every article about the sinkhole ,videos of it,oil spills,the poor people of the bayou{so many prayers go up for them,and us all as the human race},volcanoes,which are certainly a possibility,radiation,methane,mega storms,Haarp,so much of this is nature related. The thing is Man has done so much to ruin what we have been given. At this time in our history I believe all things considered we are looking at our last days on Earth as we have known it. My prayers go out to all you good folks who strive to keep us up to date on just how these times are playing out. We are and have always been in God’s Almighty hands.

      • We have a lot of dark humor here because we’d run down the road screaming if we didn’t.
        The emergency at Bayou Corne is so, so sad and the treatment of the community so shabby it is hard to think it is happening in the USA.

        There is NO reason for mere humans to trash this beautiful planet the way they do!

    CNN just had a report saying there have been 10 close to shore stark attacks in NC/SC so far this year… well above normal for an entire year…
    and this year is only half over.

    Since there are large pockets of methane hydrates off shore NC/SC … I too wonder if there is a connection.

    Unstable methane hydrates can cause undersea landslides and tsunamis… the biggest landslide and tsunami in history was caused by unstable methane hydrates.

    ” Recent mapping conducted by the USGS off North Carolina and South Carolina shows large accumulations of methane hydrates.

    A pair of relatively small areas, each about the size of the State of Rhode Island, shows intense concentrations of gas hydrates. ”


    ” USGS investigations indicate that gas hydrates may cause landslides on the continental slope.

    Seafloor slopes of 5 degrees and less should be stable on the Atlantic continental margin, yet many landslide scars are present. The depth of the top of these scars is near the top of the hydrate zone, and seismic profiles indicate less hydrate in the sediment beneath slide scars. Evidence available suggests a link between hydrate instability and occurrence of landslides on the continental margin. ”

    ” One of the largest landslides in history didn’t occur on land, but underwater, just off the coast of Norway. It also didn’t occur in recent history, but in the Holocene epoch, about 8,000 years ago. Known as the Storegga Submarine Landslide, the event caused massive amounts of sediments to slide about 497 miles (800 kilometers) down the continental slope. This in turn triggered a mega-tsunami, perhaps 82 feet (25 meters) high, that struck Norway and Scotland.

    In 1998, Russian researchers discovered an unstable hydrate field near the site of the Storegga slide. Now scientists believe that a rapid decomposition of hydrates, related to temperature and pressure changes coming at the end of the last ice age, destabilized the sediments and caused the landslide. ”


    • that’s a great connection….
      I also read the sea temps are very high on both coasts.
      Plus sharks come into shallow water (at night?) to breed. Plus these fishing boats throw out bloody live bait near where everybody swims.
      But methane bubbling up could make a lot of sharks leave their usual place (head for the beach) …. or make ’em crazy man-eaters!
