Los Angeles was only metaphorically a fart before this happened.
>>
Does this mean the 1960s smog is coming back?
>>
what would happend if that was lit on fire would it burn off the excess pressure in a cleaner manor?
>>
>>13007
You should ask >>>/sci/ because I haven't had a chemistry class in 20 years, but if I remember right, burning the methane in air would just convert it to H2O and CO2. Hopefully some /sci/entist will correct me if I'm wrong.

>>13007
Apparently it's not consistent enough to light up. I was reading the other day they're avoiding that because the way it comes out could cause a huge explosion if set on fire.
>>
>>13012
More or less, yeah. And those gases would be less potent than methane. But the problem is finding a good way to light it.
>>
>>13018
Seems simple, just take a junk car, douse it i gasoline, point it the right way, set the cruise control, light it up and send it off.
>>
hey, this is important news and relevant to my interests
>>
>>13267
Are you lying?
>>
Three to four months to close the leak, the company says. I know they don't care about the environment, so how much money are they losing every day it goes unstoppered?
>>
Somebody light a match already, the suspense is ...boring.
>>
>tfw I went up there but wasnt allowed to take pictures
>>
>>16271
How did they know you were trying?
>>
>>16278
I was just told not to take pictures when i got there
>>
>>16303
Lol, they're trying to downplay this whole thing. Which means it's probably worse than predictions.
>>
>>16348
It is a lot worse than it seems because when i was up there, there was a lot of activity going on
