Mystery Gas Smells

Jan 09, 2007

Recent unexplained gas emissions have been reported across Manhattan and neighboring New Jersey. This of course is not the first occassion in which strange gas smells have been noticed in several states. Reports have surfaced dating back as far as the year 2005. This disturbing environmental phenomina could be interlinked to numerous reports of enormous methane gas leaks being detected in the depths of the oceans. Such gigantic leaks from below the ocean surface could significantly contribute to the effects of Global Warming now occuring across our planet.

However, the leaks are not emanating from cargo holds or pump rooms but from continental shelves venting increasing amounts of trapped methane into the atmosphere. With rising ocean temperatures, methane is increasingly escaping from deep ocean floors. Methane is also 21 more times capable of trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
