Methane, Dream or Nightmare?


From the Arctic Ocean to the ocean depths of Japan, from the frozen lands of Siberia to the research lab, what impact will methane gas have on our climate? This rather forgotten gas from our planet’s past has just made a crashing comeback to centre stage.

Some scientists are studying methane rejection while other researchers are examining the possibility of extracting methane hydrate from the ocean floor. Is this a phenomenal new energy resource or a recipe for disaster?

A compelling investigation into the major environmental challenges of our century.
