Like seriously what is wrong with some ATS posters, they are like the most ignorant people I know.
"large quantities of methane gas came out, creating huge environmental problems and causing immense harm to the people of the villages, which
resulted in some deaths.
Fearing the release of poisonous gases from the cavern, the scientists decided to burn it off. Environmentally, gas firing is the next best
solution when the circumstances are such that it cannot be extracted for use. Methane gas released into the atmosphere is a dangerous greenhouse gas
whose potential for global warming is high. At that time, expectations were that the gas would burn within days, but it is still burning, decades
after it was set on fire."
Im just saying ... its in the link
To be informed, is a choice.
