Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Exhibit A as to why global warming is likely to proceed in a non-linear manner.  The only good solution to these releases I can see is rapid reversal of the recent global ambient temperature increase.  I understand that methane is a significantly more potent greenhouse gas than is CO2, so burning this methane would actually be an improvement.  Unfortunately, neither capture nor burning in situ appears feasible, although I would be delighted to be shown to be wrong.
