Arctic Methane Explosion Craters Discovered on Seafloor

We follow this frozen methane news since there’s a huge amount of it in the Gulf of Mexico – F.C.

Massive blow-out craters formed by hydrate-controlled methane expulsion from the Arctic seafloor

Like ‘champagne bottles being opened’: Scientists document an ancient Arctic methane explosion

“Scientists generally believe that the methane leaking from these seeps never makes it to the surface of the ocean, instead dissolving in the water on its way up. But some suggest that an explosion, of the type described in Thursday’s paper, could produce enough force to send some gas straight up to the surface and into the atmosphere, with potentially climate-warming consequences. . . . “
How about the explosion risk? Page 4 of this science paper shows a Louisiana map with all the seeps.

Plus the methane at Bayou Corne was thought by some to be from the Gulf of Mexico … not from decaying vegetation like Texas Brine claims.
