It’s the deadliest mining accident in the United States in more than a quarter-century.
A methane explosion appears to be the cause.
Methane on Earth reacting to Global Warming ** due to Galactic Crossing?
This post is not exactly breaking news, but a "thought" about Methane pressures World Wide.
Especially critical for the Gulf, Pennsylvania ... other related oil and gas fields?

It is a great idea, but I honestly think that the industries that have to deal with the problems of methane gas are more acutely aware of these problems than we at ATS may ever be.
I can't imagine that we as amateurs are going to come up with some completely new method of detecting the problems before they occur, although I will not say that it is completely impossible.
People in mining and oil drilling live with the ever present danger of methane and what they don't know about methane is probably not worth knowing - but don't let that stop you searching.
'The Day the Sea Burned' A TV Movie where a small rise in ocean temp at deep levels of 2 degrees releases all methane stored on sea bed. That is the absolute tipping point of no return.
Current PlanetoPhysical alterations of the Earth are becoming irreversible. Strong evidence exists that these transformations are being caused by highly charged material and energetic non-uniformity's in anisotropic interstellar space which have broken into the interplanetary area of our Solar System. This "donation" of energy is producing hybrid processes and excited energy states in all planets, as well as the Sun. Effects here on Earth are to be found in the acceleration of the magnetic pole shift, in the vertical and horizontal ozone content distribution, and in the increased frequency and magnitude of significant catastrophic climatic events. There is growing probability that we are moving into a rapid temperature instability period similar to the one that took place 10,000 years ago. The adaptive responses of the biosphere, and humanity, to these new conditions may lead to a total global revision of the range of species and life on Earth. It is only through a deep understanding of the fundamental changes taking place in the natural environment surrounding us that politicians, and citizens a like, will be able to achieve balance with the renewing flow of PlanetoPhysical states and processes.
