Samantha Joye, professor of marine sciences at the University of Georgia… is puzzled why NOAA won’t begin checking for submerged methane gases in the deep waters of the Gulf… “It seems crazy,” she said. “There is no reasonable explanation as to why it’s not being done. It just doesn’t make sense.”
Sure it makes sense. If there is massive amounts of dissolved methane (and there really has to be, when you think about it) and that Methane is what is killing all the sea life along the eastern seaboard (which it is known to do), then this would be an election killer for the incumbents. So of course NOAA (already scandalized by using flawed satellite data to bolster the case for a carbon tax on us all) is not going to carry out investigations which will produce results nobody wants before November!
