Significant increases in seafloor seepage, likely methane hydrates — Developing (3 VIDEOS)


After a relatively quiet night, more white objects are shooting from the sea floor -- likely methane hydrates.

    The PR efforts by BP are impressive. Note the "newest" photos on CNN/HLN..show a plug..NOT THE BOP or the real well head. Guess they no longer can chance showing the REAL situation. And USCG has no way to provide independent verification. Interesting that the "plug" has a lift attached to the top--guess that is Standard Operating Procedure..along with limiting any video live feeds. So far Florida Oil Spill Law is keeping a good running log. Good Job!

    This stuff shooting up out of the seabed this morning has me VERY concerned. I've been looking at this same ROV feed off and on for several days and haven't seen it doing anything like this!!!!
