Oil and Gas Industry?!

Dear Elliott,

Buubles of methane are always rising to the surface of the planet, and large and small buubles of gas that reach the surface are expelled into the atmosphere.

This mechanism is what really causes earthquakes.

Sometimes the methane bubble spontaneously combusts and burns as it leaves the ground, like it did in a lake in Turkey about a decade ago.

Interestingly, methane cannot support flight.

An aeroplane would simply drop out of the sky if it tried to fly through methane.

Birds have the same problem.

I hope this puts you somewhat at ease, I see you panic every day, and try to induce panic and fear in your posts.

What you really should fear, Elliott, is how corrupted the information in your head(lines) is.

Quiet reflection and a true education will make you feel better.

It would be interesting to see an analysis of all the bird and other animal deaths over a considerable period of time.

So when we go under the ground looking for oil; natural gas and etc earthquakes happen? Ok Question so when they had the Good Friday earthquake that hit Alaska in 1964 that was caused by us driling for oil? How about the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. That too? I thought it was Opera Star putting a cruse on the City itself. Or was in the one we as Americans were drilling near Beijing in 1731 that killed over 180,000 that one was caused by us. Right?

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
