    Why don't you use it to make a mountain of whipped cream?

    yeah, i've seen it suggested that occasional burps in the bermuda triangle reduce the buoyancy of boats and planes, sinking them. fwiw, the methane hydrates are a more potent greenhouse gas. for that reason, we need to mine it and burn it, asap.


    about the whipped cream, i'd rather use NO, it's more fun.

    $25 dollars per ton of CO2. Not a penny more.

    As long as you're not going to release a massive quantity of methane...

    It might make for a great experiment. We'll finally find out then :biggrin:
