    CLIMATE CHANGE POKES GIANT HOLES IN RUSSIA

    Russian scientists say climate change to blame for mysterious Siberia craters; The seven holes discovered are not the work of aliens or meteorites, but rather explosions of methane accumulated as underground ice melts

    12 March 2015 (AFP via UK Guardian)

    “Russian scientists have now discovered seven giant craters in remote Siberia [linked to climate change]...The discovery of an enormous chasm in a far northern region known to locals as ‘the end of the world’ in July last year prompted speculation it had been caused by a meteorite or even aliens…[A] group of scientists was dispatched to investigate…[T]his brought to seven the number of reported pits [and there are thought to be more]…All of the craters have been discovered in the remote, energy-rich Yamalo-Nenetsky region in north-western Siberia…Scientists say that rather than aliens or meteorites, the holes are caused by the melting of underground ice in the permafrost, which has possibly been sped up by rising temperatures due to global warming…As the ice melts, methane gas is released, which builds up pressure until an explosion takes place, leading to the formation of a crater…The scientists are still trying to estimate what danger, if any, is posed by the holes. Methane is extremely flammable and at least one of the craters is situated near an exploited gas deposit…” click here for more
