    Before you comment as if you are the only one able to see the truth, please, PLEASE go back to one of the many open sources of actual data on the web for:

    -- known geographical distribution of sea floor clathrates (methane hydrates), including their depths
    -- known data, including but not limited to those from the Argo system, on sea temps at depth (0-700m, 700-2000m) as a function of time
    -- modeling based on those known data and the physics (gee, PV=nRT tells me what?) to estimate their stability
    -- the nuances in estimating the 'lifetime' or 'persistence' of CH4

    There are scads of highly intelligent and/or educated folks who read and comment here, but the dogmatism of commenters to this particular diary rival the denialist trollery on some of the best climate sites.  And most of these comments aren't even from deniers!

    Do you honestly believe the scores of wonky physical climatologists haven't already heard these arguments (and shook their heads wearily) hundreds of times?

    Please get a grip!
