Methane gas hydrate is gas locked in an ice-like lattice of water molecules. There’s more of it to be had than natural gas. Extraction is very risky as there is evidence that a great release of gas hydrates, called the clathrate gun hypothesis, caused an ice age. There is stronger evidence that this methane “gun” caused the Permian extinction event 251 million years ago, when 96% of all marine species became extinct. Despite our destructive tendencies, Richard explains how he still finds hope for humanity. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
