While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Siberian Explosions Signal Climate Change Acceleration

    Giant holes are bursting open in Siberia, and you can hear the explosions from 60 miles away

    Sarah Kramer and Dave Mosher, June 11, 2016 (Tech Insider)

    “Giant holes are popping up all over the frigid tundra of northern Russia…[Witnesses say explosive events] may be connected…[The first one spotted, in 2013, was about 13 feet wide and nearly 330 feet deep and] more have shown up — including a 100-foot-wide crater on Siberia's Yamal Peninsula…spotted in 2014…[Aliens and underground missiles were floated as possible theories but they are likely due to climate change. Scientists] think that permafrost, the permanently frozen ground that covers the [methane hydrate-saturated] tundra, is starting to thaw in these warmer temperatures…[Given low enough temperatures and high enough pressure, methane and water can freeze together and the permafrost] keeps everything bottled up but when it thaws, so does the hydrate. Methane is released as a gas, building up pressure — until the ground explodes…[Some call this a time bomb. One] of the craters is just 6 miles from a natural gas field. The two flammable materials in such close proximity is a huge safety concern…[T]he same thing could happen in Alaska…These mysterious Siberian craters seem to be yet another warning sign that human-caused climate change is quickly spinning out of control…” click here for more
