A Theory On Dead Fish & Birds, Disappearing Vessels and Airplanes.

Study finds massive flux of gas, in addition to liquid oil, at BP well blowout in Gulf

A new University of Georgia study that is the first to examine comprehensively the magnitude of hydrocarbon gases released during the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico oil discharge has found that up to 500,000 tons of gaseous hydrocarbons were emitted into the deep ocean, where it is trapped in a deep layer (1000 – 1300 m) of the water column. 

The authors conclude that such a large gas discharge (methane and pentane, known to have significant health implications for human and marine life)—which generated concentrations 75,000 times the norm—could result in small-scale zones of "extensive and persistent depletion of oxygen" as microbial processes degrade the gaseous hydrocarbons.

Now what if the gas is not trapped, as the study maintains, but bodies of gas of unknown sizes are being formed and escape to the surface at irregular intervals, floating in the air as highly toxic, invisible, odourless, super explosive, “drop-dead” bubbles?

Would this not explain the “dead fish in the ocean and birds falling from the sky” phenomenon?

And suppose this phenomenon is just a natural occurrence (except for in the Gulf, courtesy BP) in other part of the world, would it not explain midair exploding airplanes and disappearing vessels?

Agree, 99,9% of these bubbles would disappear in the air and dissolve. But 0,1% of them might not, floating in the air horizontally and, depending on size, chemical composition and weather patterns, be destructive or not.

Who would ever know?

From the study
"It's like searching for a needle in the haystack. We may never know what happened to all of that gas."
Joye said the methane and other gases likely will remain deep in the water column....
Likely? Likely is 80%? 90%. Much more than 99.9% as previously stated. Great!!

Now what if such a “drop-dead” bubble descends on a densely populated metropolitan area...........

Update: My 2nd eldest son Jeroen (12) questioned my theory. He says all the gas dissipates in the air. Great comment! But then, what if the gas comes out streaming out of the ocean and keeps on streaming for an X number of hours. Like a geyser. Again: who would ever know, see or smell, unless you cross he path with an open fire, like an airplane with jet engines or a vessel with gas ovens or people smoking?

Update2: The more I look around, the more stories about climate change, the unknown of the ocean floor but also the potential as an alternative energy source.
