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 –

” . . . .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.”
