Look at the latest images and videos released by Russian scientists. They are very worrying!

And the gas release does not only occur at a remote location but is a new widespread phenomenon coming from the depths of the Laptev and the East Siberian seas.

The following results corroborate the preleminary data published a month ago.

The expedition mapped over 1,000 large seep fields (areas of massive methane discharge over 100 meters or 328 ft).

Moreover, six mega seeps were found in both the Laptev and the East Siberian seas (over 1,000 meters in linear dimension).

And according to the first results, the fields of methane discharge continue to grow all along the East Siberian Arctic Ocean Shelf, with concentration of atmospheric methane above the fields reaching 16-32ppm (parts per million), up to 15 times above the planetary average of 1.85ppm. 

Moreover, scientists discovered giant pockmarks and fields of craters up to 98ft in diameter) at the bottom of both the Laptev and East Siberian seas, actively venting bubbles and strong methane signals. 

It is thought that these holes are form by massive methane discharge.

Finally, two powerful seeps emitting methane through iceberg furrows were discovered in the East Siberian Sea.

Scientists say, the fields of methane discharge have all increased in size. They now have to determine by how much to calculate the level of threat of this venting methane gas. More geology news on Siberian Times, Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. This is interesting that for about 50 years they have been studing teh MethaneHydroxolate deposits, bubble and sinkholes off the Coast of Florida extending up to the Carolinas. It has been the source of theories on plane crashes and ships sinking along the coast of the USA.
    The trench off the coast here has cold water like the arctic areas.
    It was determined that there is biology oxidizing the deposits and releasing the methane.
    However with recent ice pack movement at both south and north pole the political focus has shifted from observation and study to debunking possible reasons for higher shipping losses in the non- polar regions. The politically funded science is now focused on high lighting polar losses of methane while ignoring that our planet has actually cooled and the total ice cover has grown.
    Activists have set out to intentionally draw attention away form the total volume of gas emitted in the western Atlantic to focusing on much smaller releases in areas that the ice has moved away from as a form of alarmist propaganda. remember that the activists underlying premise that humans are the primary cause of climatic cycles associated with our variable star sol.

    For the activist the existence of long term greenhouse gas release that is millions of times larger than the total human emission is contrary to their religious belief in stifling human potential and invoking hegemonic despotic control over all human expression.

    The recent focus on the Russian tundra and Mc Murdo Bay areas has mislead the people of the world in an attempt to justify the practice of an anti-human belief system. In 2014 it was all about the equator and equatorial emissions as we entered the Monder minimum these levels dropped and polar regions became more active. Global temperature since 1991 has been declining not increasing.

    The thing about variable stars like Sol is that the 11 year cycle is just one of many cycles that the sun has gone through in human recorded history.

    The advocates of human caused climate fluctuation could better be understood by a couple of ideas that are summarily rejected.

    If we compare the cost of placing a large plastic reflective surface over major portions of the desert to the global cost of just reducing international flights we can see that economics would prevail with a shielded desert.

    Or if we simply allow the use of HIGH sulfur petrochemical fuels the reflectivity of the globe would increase lowering total temperature in line with our dominant crop heritage seeds growing cycles. Remember a single volcanic eruption has proven to release tens of thousands of times more sulfur than what was eliminated in the 1970s.

    The activist science is not looking for solutions other than reducing the earths population and subjugating the survivors.
    The impacts of proposed “solutions” are far greater than the adaptation to any change that will come from a variable star.

    • These craters and methane craters already scatter both US coasts… And what’s worrying is that these fields also are in/along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. But I am not sure if it could trigger the deadly tsunami everybody fears (at least those living along this trench)
