Hm, could this set the atmosphere on fire, thus burning up all the oxygen?
On August 21, 1986, possibly triggered by a landslide, Lake Nyos suddenly emitted a large cloud of CO2, which suffocated 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock in nearby villages. Though not completely unprecedented, it was the first known large-scale asphyxiation caused by a natural event.

The Gulf wont put out anywhere near the disaster of Centralia, Pennsylvania
Centrailia has been on fire for over 45 years, the government couldnt stop it and as media slowly stopped reporting on it, the american people forgot about it.
It will burn for next 200 years and cannot be stopped. It is much worse methane, co2, sulfur, etc producer than anything on earth at the moment.
it makes the Gulf at the moment look like a simple kitchen milk spill.
but since media pulled out of Centralia and the herd out of sight out of mind mentality it's been forgotten.
But it will burn for 200 more years until it burns out. And has already been burning for over 45 years.
Gulf spill has nothing on it at the moment. The amount of gasses is insane, the habitat is dead and it's the basis of the Silent Hill stories.
In places such as south Texas, oil formations are much deeper, and do not generally pose the problem we will be discussing. However: .Should our shallower natural gas reserves ever become ignited, .them being deeper won't make any difference,. because literally everything on the North American Continent would either explode, or burn.
One can easily see that with the water in the aquifer depleted by farmers using it for irrigation, the energy company's "replacement" water is constantly being drawn downward, thereby creating a partial vacuum in the Natural Gas Reserve above it, which then sucks oxygen into the reserve from the surface of the earth.
On the left is the Wedding and Party Supply Store just after the gas explosion. On the right is a photo of several firemen in protective gear as they helplessly watch the fire that ensued after a mobile home park exploded from the very same natural gas leak.
However, the mobile home park was three miles away from the exploded store, which demonstrates that natural gas most definitely does move laterally through cracks and crevices in the earth, and documents that which we will now demonstrate is potentially the most horrendous threat any nation on earth has ever had to contend with.
Some will claim natural gas requires EXACTLY fourteen percent oxygen to support an explosion, others will tell you twenty one percent. But let them try telling their absurd "exactly fourteen percent or twenty one percent oxygen" defense to the thousands of people who lost their homes due to natural gas explosions last year, because gas escaped into the ATMOSPHERE, in their house.

More to the point, Gold also claimed the existence of liquid hydrocarbons—oil—at great depths. But there is a problem with this: the temperatures at depths below about 15,000 feet are high enough (above 275 degrees F) to break hydrocarbon bonds. What remains after these molecular bonds are severed is methane, whose molecule contains only a single carbon atom. For petroleum geologists this is not just a matter of theory, but of repeated and sometimes costly experience: they speak of an oil “window” that exists from roughly 7,500 feet to 15,000 feet, within which temperatures are appropriate for oil formation; look far outside the window, and you will most likely come up with a dry hole or, at best, natural gas only. The rare exceptions serve to prove the rule: they are invariably associated with strata that are rapidly (in geological terms) migrating upward or downward. (4)
