The burp to end all burps

Okay, I don't have a copy of the text and only here cheap viagra canada I don't have a login for TimesSelect -- then how, you ask did I get this information? {mosimage}I have my sources/mother... -- but there's a New York Times op-ed today about the theory of cialis canadian the "methane burp," or as the headline puts it, "The Big Burp Theory of the Apocalypse."

Very flashy. Can't wait for the movie.
 
"Snakes on a Plane II: Burps at the Apocalypse."
 
At any rate, the idea is that under the uk cialis sales sea (under the sea!), there is a store of methane that's waiting for warmer climes to bubble up and then, you know, make all of the oceans boil like giant seafood-frying... oceans. The beginning of the column looks like this:
 
"Since President Bush is complacent about conventional risks from climate change, let's try fear-mongering."
 
Some preview that is! At least we know it's about fear-mongering and burping, right?

For those of us without, here's the general idea of methane burps as extracted from an AP story that ran on CNN.com a-way back in 2000:
 
"Huge reservoirs of methane trapped beneath the ocean floor rapidly escaped during prehistoric global warming and depleted much of cialis non prescription the sea's oxygen, according to new research into why many forms of life suddenly vanished 183 million years ago."
 
And:
 
"Methane hydrate is www.sinai.org.il formed beneath the sea floor when algae from the surface dies and sinks. Normally a gas, the methane is locked in an ice-like state but is susceptible to changes in pressure and temperature."
 
So that's exciting. If that's not enough, check out this explanation from the UK's Environment Agency.
