Agreed, and to think how much methane is simply lofting up from the ground. There is no way they can 'capture' but a tiny fraction of all that gas. No matter. It gets logged as 'proof' of global waming™. Hell to pay for this one.

There was something about an "expanding earth theory". I thought of it as soon as I read your post.
Let's just hope we survive this possibly bumpy ride.
I have no links, but I'm going to go see what google says on this.
I'm sure all the hyrdraulic fracturing (fracking) for gas in the shale isn't helping us any. The people doing that claim that it doesn't cause earthquakes, but if they're "fracturing" the shale beneath our feet, through drilling and small explosions, how is that not like an earthquake?
Volcanism: Activity at the Hydrogen/Oxygen Interface Volcanic activity
- that's the sparks that fly and the heat that develops at the interface between the hydrogen-saturated mantle of the earth and the carapace or outer crust, where oxygen dominates. When hydrogen and oxygen meet and mix, heat is released that melts stone and results in lava. At times, a more explosive reaction involving certain gases generates great fireworks and leaves a fine ash - sometimes in thick strata - that covers the surroundings of the site of the explosion
