It's called fire ice: methane hydrate, the natural gas lying off South Carolina, the fuel widely acknowledged to be driving a campaign to open the deep ocean offshore to oil and natural gas exploration.
Shale gas, undoubtedly, has turned out to be a big thing. Natural gas production has been steadily climbing since 2006, and natural gas prices are so low that gas is displacing dirty coal as the fuel of choice in our power plants.
But, with concerns over water pollution and air pollution from the process of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) -- and global warming impacts (conceivably as bad as or even worse than coal) from natural gas leakages from the extraction and piping of the fuel -- the bona fides of shale gas as an environmentally friendly fuel has been pretty well tarnished.
Now a new source of natural gas threatens to take shale's position as the ultimate energy game changer of our times: methane hydrates. - The Huffington Post
The move underscores the Obama administration's continued commitment to investigating the potential energy resources locked in methane hydrates, despite concerns that unchecked methane releases could accelerate ...
New technology and a little-known energy source suggest that fossil fuels may not be finite. This would be a miracle—and a nightmare. (Forget the boom in shale gas and oil from hydraulic franking, gas from methane hydrate is the next wave.
