    Good instructive video, although the images are lacking.

    what are the odds that about a 100,000 years ago a methane bomb went off too? or maybe even 15,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age? with tectonic plate movements and constantly rising mountains it is quite feasible that methane 'bombs' are a trigger for climate change and of course global warming.

    At 10:38 Dr. Miriam Kastner makes a mistake that over-estimates the methyl hydrate estimates by a factor of 1,000,000. She is using the European "gigaton" (10**15) when the North American "gigaton" (10**9) is always used in these graphs and tables in my experience.

    From the molecular graphic at 5:08 I calculate 60 cubic metres of methane at STP for 1 cubic metre of hydrate, not the 160 cubic metres. I'm going from memory about 1 mole occupying 22.4 litres STP. Perhaps I'm missing some aspect. Check it out yourself.

    please check out the date sadly whats being said now 2012 is really bad. Lets put it this way. Reminds me when my students and I saw the world trade center on fire and the teachers in the lunchroom saw them go down. I saw a fellow teacher in the hall and all i could do was say. This is real. Well this is real too. Much too real. Keep your ears open and use ur heads folks.

    We all need to be tracking this information. It appears much has been known for a long time.
    Get informed, spread the word and pray for peace and progress on this topic.

    @tranquilocito If you added up all the cow farts for the past 100 years i dont think it would ever even comes close to what a single valcano could vent off during eruption…. which they said was like 5 trillon,trillion tons…

    ahh! just a few more degrees and the master plan will be complete…
    Yeah, if that stuff decides to gasify which a warmer ocean will surely encourage, we're through and rather quickly too. Make the gas dense enough in the atmosphere and by golly no smoking everybody~!
    thanks for the video and it is a worry no doubt!
