Methane Explosion From Deep Water Horizon Event Debunked

“I wouldn’t believe that at all," Gregory Stone, director of the Louisiana State University Coastal Studies Institute, told us. "There’s a lot of press out there in regards to this event that is just inaccurate. We’ve got some of the best scientists in the world here, and we’re not concerned about that scenario at all."

Interesting article, from a different point of view from others here as well.

They are admitting to the release of methane, but not enough to cause an incident like an explosion or floor collapse with a tidal wave.

I wish someone would go in depth more about this though, and talk about the sea floor cracking, or a "bubble" under the sea floor, etc. etc.

Crap, how do you fix the link part of the article post?

First news post for me.

here you go

edit: well one thing they really would have to be worried about is having any ships around that area... There may not be super massive releases, but if there are any small burps they can easily sink a ship in moments, a lot of people attribute lost ships to events just like that, the sort where there is not even time to get off a mayday radio call.

The gas released completely changes the density of the water, and the ship drops to the bottom like a stone.

Is this the same story?

It might be. Looks like almost the same article but from a different source.

Second...

There is absolutely NOTHING in that article.

No debunking, no arguments, no science, no background not even a simple explanation in laymans terms.

Basically it's a scientist saying: "move along, nothing to see here"

Can you provide any evidence in favor of a methane bubble?
Any type of research that shows there is a bubble there?

Debunked isn't the right word to use in my opinion, since there isn't any debunking going on in the article. It's more of a dismissal as "unlikely" of such an event taking place, which is exactly what this is. An event that has a very miniscule probability of taking place.

The MSM has debunked America as a concept.

The Methane will continue ot be an issue as it seperates itself. Whether or not it blows does not mean it won't be causing issues in the environment.

Peace

Thats not correct at all. It appears to be debunking the notion that a massive methane explosion is likely to end all life on earth. A theory more than a few on here seem disturbingly obsessed with.

Of course, it doesnt debunk what people are actually worried about, which is a methane bubble rising and causing major problems with the sea floor, ship bouyancy, and possibly even a tsunami.

and yes, there are some far better answers in this thread, for the 4 people who havent put me on ignore:
