This is interesting...A huge sinkhole opened in Siberia just last week and now another; also in Siberia




Reindeer herders in Russia's Far North have discovered yet another mysterious giant hole about 30 kilometers away from a similar one found days earlier.
Located in the permafrost of the subarctic Siberian region of Yamal, which means “end of the earth” in the local Nenets language, both craters appear to have been formed in recent years and have icy lakes at their bases.


This is Global Warming at its finest, I tell ya'. I think all of this weather has something to do with the Earth's magnetic field which is said to be weakening.
news.yahoo.com...

I think the fluctuation(s) of the magnetic waves is the reason why it's warmer in some places and cooler in others.



Around the time the first crater is estimated to have formed—2012 or 2013—temperatures were unusually high for that part of Siberia. In general, the whole Arctic region is the fastest warming place on the planet, warming about twice as fast as global averages. A study published last year said the Arctic hasn’t been this warm in at least 120,000 years.


Now comes the Doom Porn you've all be waiting for.........



As permafrost melt accelerates across the Arctic, there’s increasing concern that the natural release of methane and other greenhouse gases will also accelerate. Arctic permafrost in Alaska, Canada, and Russia holds more frozen carbon (in the form of both carbon dioxide and methane) than currently exists in the entire atmosphere. Methane is more than 20 times more potent at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. Some studies have linked massive releases of methane to the biggest mass extinctions in Earth history.


Well, there you have it, ATS.......Doom Porn!! Seriously though, could these sinkholes be some sort of sign? The beginning of some major Earth changes coming down the pipeline? What says ATS?

Is anything not related to climate change?

I honestly think you will be happy if a smoking gun is ever found.

Don't forget to pay your carbon tax increases when they come around.

I wonder if this could have something to do with the north pole possibly shifting to SIberia.

I don't know. I'm not a scientist, I just play one on tv.........

Yeah......If we can figure out the cause then maybe we can find a solution. Although, if the cause is what I think it is then we're all screwed. Better pay that Carbon Tax in order to save the Earth.

It isn't related to climate change, but it will probably be used as a tool to raise taxes by the global elites. I seriously don't know how some of you fall for this climate change crap. The climate changes, it always has, it always will, the only question is will you let some scumbag politicians use it as an excuse to raid your wallet.

I agree that the climate changes but it usually occurs over a period of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of years, does it not? This round of climate change is happening at an accelerated pace, don't you agree?

so which is it then ??? ,,,,

-is man-made weather changes causing the magnetic field to weaken.. doubtful since the earths magnetic field flips every 250,000 years on average ,,,which is long over due....

-or is the magnetic field weaken causing weather changes ?? --something climate scientist rarely factor in

I'd go for the underground thermal vents rising up and heating the underlying bedrock. That would be enough to make the water melt.

Interesting!




The first hole is estimated to be about 50 meters wide and 70 meters deep, with water from melting permafrost cascading down its sides into the icy deposit below.

The second hole is "exactly" like the first one, but "much smaller," local lawmaker Mikhail Lapsui told the Interfax-Ural news agency. "Inside the crater itself, snow can be seen."

The same dirt piled around the rim like the last one, seems like an explosion should create a more non uniform shaped hole.

Iv been meaning to start a thread about the sink holes appearing around the world, maybe now would be a time. Have any of you seen that new film noah??? In it the floods come not only from the rain but it start coming out of the earth from big holes in the ground.

I read a thread on here not long ago about that massive underground ocean they found beneath america, maybe the sink holes are opening up to allow all that water to come up and wash away all of us??!!!???

Could they not simply be hydrolaccoliths? A natural geologic phenomena "formed by ground ice which develops during the winter months as temperatures fall."

The remote locations don't make a summer time discovery all that odd, IMO.

There's no good reason to think this isn't related to "climate change". There is methane stored in permafrost that is unthawed due to the very anomalous temperature spikes going on the higher in latitude you go from the equator. We've observed, measured, know the mechanisms behind this... and this always going on "climate change" is happening far too rapidly for natural variation. It's perfectly coinciding with the now proven, and universally accepted within the scientific community, theory of greenhouse gas emissions affect on global atmospheric, land, and marine temperatures.

There's no good reason to remain in such an unenlightened, and ignorant state of mind.

No. That is a mound of ice, which has a covering of earth. There is no hole into the ground.

They do eventually collapse.

Eom

You have a mound of ice, and dirt, that collapses into the surrounding terrain. Does it collapse down, creating a 70 meter (I think this was the depth) hole, magically displacing the dirt.... to another universe?

This has nothing to do with magnetic fields. As a producer/consumer, we are excreting so much CO2 waste that we are turning into a another Venus.
Were are going to see some strange catasthropic appear in our lifetime. Come to Phoenix and right now. Once this place hits 120s several days, there will be a mass exodus.

Beware my friend....

Nah..sinkholes are the Earth's pores...like the pores on our skin, it lets the Earth breathe and release gases and fluid build up.

70 meters is the height listed as possible in the article I linked to.

can reach up to 70 metres (230 ft) in height and up to 600 m (2,000 ft) in diameter.
I am definitely not going to trust myself to judge overall size and depth from a poor photo.

I'd read (last week?) that a team was going to be sent out to survey and study it. I'm waiting to read about it when the reports come in. Geologic oddities always catch my interest.

70m in HEIGHT from the surface of the surrounding area, and 70m in DEPTH from the surrounding area are two ENTIRELY different things.

Let's wait and see what the team concludes, but I'm finding it difficult to believe that this is merely a collapse of ice, and not the result of an out-gassing of some sort.
