Skip to comments.World's 'Most Beautiful' Eternal Flame Reveals New Gas Source
Posted on 05/12/2013 11:46:21 AM PDT by EveningStar
Nestled behind a waterfall in western New York state is an eternal flame whose beauty is only surpassed by its mystery. It is one of a few hundred "natural" eternal flames around the world, fed by gas seeping to the Earth's surface from underground, said Arndt Schimmelmann, a researcher at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind.

NYS - no fracking for you peons.
It’s green all the way.
So... the Earth creates useable ‘fuels’ in various ways.
Almost as if it were intended to be that way.
Wanna bet that Cuomo has his staff figuring out how to tax it?
They needed an outsider to investigate this like they need a hole in their head...Let me ponder that for a moment.
Gas is all over the place....It's all about depth.
Permit Fee, EPA Fee, Inspection Fees, Accident-Pool Fee, Federal Tax, NYS Tax, County Tax, Town Tax....
Idiot author. Even kids know that farts are natural!

” Even kids know that farts are natural! “
Mine are supernatural!
“In this case, though, the rocks that feed the flame are only warm “like a cup of tea” as well as geologically younger than expected, and shallow, Schimmelmann said. Those findings suggest the gas is being produced by a different process, whereby some sort of catalyst is creating gas from organic molecules in the shale, he said.
“This mechanism has been proposed for many years, but it was a curiosity that nobody believed in,” Schimmelmann said. “We think there’s a different pathway of gas generation in this location and that there probably is elsewhere as well.” If that’s true, and gas is naturally produced this way in other locations, “we have much more shale-gas resources than we thought,” he added.”
Like we didn’t know all this stuff....
Thank goodness...I'm getting older...and I think they were catching on to the arm farts.
With all due respect Pachysandra, that is Bogus!
It IS farts, and also belches; but it is Pellucidarian sheep and cows creating it. Methane rises, and is rising through the rocky roof of Pellucidar, to pollute our world and create global warming. It is a long term, insidious plan to weaken Humanity so we can be invaded.
The "mysterious booms" reported from many places around the world are caused Pellucidarians fracking their roof, to release more gas to the surface world.
Clearly you have not received the memo. It’s all been caused quite recently by that evil fracking—doncha know?
And Cuomo is an idiot for not exploiting this resource.
