The time for arguing with those blinded by greed and self-interest is over. The damage has already been done.

Help an idiot out here.............the positive thing is a misnomer then? In terms of us, it actually isn't that good?

At this point of time debating whether the globe is warming or not and if it is, whether the primary contributor is human lifestyle or not is completely meaningless. Even if we did have some control at some point of time in the past, we are past that as evidenced by the methane emissions. The best that scientists can do now is to develop models to predict climate change, so that we can prepare for it in the best way we can, rather than attempt to stop the change.

Very very good find.
This show that us humans are puny and earth will do whatever she has to do.
I'm sure those vents are producing in a week way way way more greenhouse gases than all of humanity has produced in the last thousand years.
Now I'll just print this and show this to the still brainwashed ``we must cut our CO2 and pay carbon taxes`` eco-nazis in my family... maybe that'll wake them up.edit on 13-12-2011 by Vitchilo because: (no reason given)

Defusing the Methane Greenhouse Time Bomb Could methane-digesting bacteria and an Arctic cap of fresh water prevent a climate catastrophe?

Could the cold water affect the oceanic currents ( change of temperature of the ocean ) and so affect the temperature to drop drastically on land? ?????( colder seawater, colder air blowing in? )

It is so stupid that government did not act when they had a chance too. Its no good debating if climate change is man made or not. It is not a gamble worth taking....
