This poster sounds pretty familiar w/ methane hydrate and has a different opinion all of this....from Enenews comment section:

"…So..if Deepwater Horizon is unrepaired..there is an ongoing release of methane hydrates..though frozen and in the water columnm?…"

Methane hydrate ice is denser than seawater at 6000'. You can stir chunks of it up, but it will eventually settle back to the bottom. You can melt it if there's something hot (like oil) next to it, but there's also billions of gallons of freezing cold water around it. You can't really heat up a large area without something like a shift in deep Gulf currents.

Methane hydrate also needed fresh water to form initially. If something melts it at the bottom of the Gulf, then it will not reform even though it is still below freezing and compressed to thousands of PSI of pressure. Some stays dissolved in the water column, and some forms bubbles. It depends on the conditions when it formed.

This has nothing to do with the salt dome or natural gas (methane) accumulating there (my opinion). The sediment is too warm for water to freeze, and the natural gas is not under enough pressure. The natural gas around Napoleonville is just regular old formation natural gas that was always trapped in the deep formations (Big Hum sands or whatever) with the crude."

So maybe methane hydrate explosion is not the fear, but the aquifer is?
Any comments?

Please debate this. I find this a serious rebuttal to forecasts I have read so far. I'm not spending my time here to be ignored.
