Relax people, most of these events will turn out to be nothing, and everyone will be fine.

January 8, 2007 -- The environmental "surge" you're not hearing anything about.
According to U.S. maritime industry sources, tanker captains are reporting an increase in onboard alarms from hazard sensors designed to detect hydrocarbon gas leaks and, specifically, methane leaks. However, the leaks are not emanating from cargo holds or pump rooms but from continental shelves venting increasing amounts of trapped methane into the atmosphere. With rising ocean temperatures, methane is increasingly escaping from deep ocean floors. Methane is also 21 more times capable of trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
In fact, one of the major sources for increased methane venting is the Hudson Submarine Canyon, which extends 400 miles into the Atlantic from the New York-New Jersey harbor. Another location experiencing increased venting is the Santa Barbara Channel on the California coast.[/exe]
From this dude.
Is this whats going on??
Maybe these two events are related?
It states in the link that El Nino starts by a rise in temperature of the ocean and is due early 2007.
Any similar events like these the last time round?
