Yes, but, if the Methane replaces the air (70% Nitrogen/20% Oxygen) then you will just suffocate in it (In the Methane).

If the Methane explodes it will burn the mask off of your face.

Methane is bad news.

A Scott Air Pack may be a better choice, until it runs out of air.

I wouldn't worry about the Methane so much

as the Hydrogen Sulfide and Volatile Organic COmpounds

and if perchance there are substantial levels of

chlorinated sulphur compounds, that'd be a big problem.

If someone lights a cigarette after all of the methane that's underneath our oceans and ground release into our troposphere, will everyone burn to death?

The thing with methane is to know the concentration inside the building/vessel/area you are working in...if the volume reaches the 10% LEL (lower explosive limit) then its time to get the fuck out because no Scott air pack will save your arse if there's a spark or other ignition source. I saw first hand the devastation of a meth gas explosion on an oil sands facility...two dead and a multi million dollar building destroyed.
