Photos of burning methane in ice

It looks amazing, but it’s actually terrifying. These methane bubbles trapped in ice are a natural phenomena that occurs in arctic areas. This video of scientists igniting the gas shows just how potent this stuff is – and it’s everywhere in cold, tundra regions of the world. The problem isn’t that it’s stuck under ice; the problem is that global warming and melting of the ice will result in all this methane being released into the atmosphere – and it’s a greenhouse gas that’s 25 times more dangerous for the world than carbon dioxide.
