Doomsday: How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a 'world-killing' event
by Terrence Aym
Ominous reports are leaking past the BP Gulf salvage operation news blackout that the disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico may be about to reach biblical proportions.
251 million years ago a mammoth undersea methane bubble caused massive explosions, poisoned the atmosphere and destroyed more than 96 percent of all life on Earth.  Experts agree that what is known as the Permian extinction event was the greatest mass extinction event in the history of the world. 
55 million years later another methane bubble ruptured causing more mass extinctions during the Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum (LPTM).
The LPTM lasted 100,000 years. 
Those subterranean seas of methane virtually reshaped the planet when they explosively blew from deep beneath the waters of what is today called the Gulf of Mexico.
Now, worried scientists are increasingly concerned the same series of catastrophic events that led to worldwide death back then may be happening again-and no known technology can stop it.
The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.
The oil giant drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble.

Fantastic thread, about a sad situation.
I can't help but remember that 30 years ago, many "mediums" announced that they saw the south of the united states underwater...
I wonder if this is it...
Very good work!

Did I miss the part where a scientist was worried about a methane bubble in the gulf at present time?
No....I dont think I did....In fact NO one except people trying to hawk DVDS, Subscription based websites, and their own sick egos has actually propsed that this is imminent.
