I do not agree... explosion - nuclear reaction - bam, bam, bam, RIGHT??? - Not to mention, faults etc... Stop trying to get people in all the other states to not pay attention, think not many people give a rat's ass bout some cajuns? That may be, but let people understand that their ass is on the line, too, PUNK! [/quote] i don't want to cloud the issue by talking about southwest mississippi and and east texas. southern louisiana is quite enough for starters. [/quote] For starters, this did NOT just start!! - There are MANY issues, methane saturation for just 3 regions not being one of them, IMO. MANY states are at risk - if you are all about the methane, why are you not 'theorizing' about the faults, cracks and fissures and/or what kind of nuclear chain-reaction an explosion will set off??!! People, this could HARM the entire East Coast, yo! The media is not making a peep about it, WHYYYYY? [/quote] Simple they've been asked not too, or may be even paid not too. [/quote] true. this could be a vexing enough problem that the experts are still scratching their heads about it, and they won't go public with anything until they're satisfied that they have a good handle on this thing. and, of course, if it's taking them this long for them to "get a handle on it", it must be a real doozie of a problem.

The initially estimated 200 by 200 feet sinkhole that developed late last week, swallowing ancient cypress trees 100 feet tall near Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities in south Louisiana, is now reported to be 380 feet deep with a diameter of 372 feet, filled mainly with salt water with traces of diesel fuel, and only 1,500 feet from a cavern filled with butane, according to Tuesday morning news. Analysts' reports further hint that Texas Brine Company's cavern failed, but the butane cavern failing is today's worst-case scenario.
If a nearby butane-filled cavern fails, as it appears the brine cavern did,
"it could cause an explosion felt up to two miles away."
