A video published by the Russian media Siberian Times is going around the world because of the impact of its images. In it you can see an inexplicable elasticity of a large portion of soil, on the island of Belyy, a territory belonging to Russia located in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, in front of Siberian things.

Researchers Alexander Sokolov and Dorothee Ehrich were the ones who carried out ‘the investigation’ and captured the images. In them, they are seen stepping on the huge 'bubble' until it is 'punctured' and air comes out of it, as if it were a deflating balloon.

However, what is terrible about the news is that what is leaking is not air, but Co2 and methane. In total, the researchers counted up to 15 similar bubbles in the area and warned of the danger of their presence.

Climate change, the main responsible

The causes and processes that lead to gas accumulating in the soil generating these species of bubbles have not yet been 100% determined by researchers. The main hypothesis so far is that its origin is related to the effects of climate change.

Why? Because the Arctic is registering higher than usual temperatures that cause the area to thaw and threaten the climate of Europe and North America. The permafrost, the underground ice sheet, is melting in Siberia, causing the methane gas trapped in the water table to escape and generate "gas pockets" like the ones in the image.

In turn, scientists say that methane emissions from the Arctic could cause "additional warming" for the planet.

The appearance of these gas bubbles would also reveal the mystery of the craters found in Siberia recently that had no explanation, since it is now believed that they were created by an accumulation of underground gases. Scientists think that a methane concentration greater than 9.5% would cause the explosions causing the craters.

    In my opinion, he is wrong. I propose to discuss it. Write to me in PM.
