Submission + - China to Tap Combustible Ice as New Energy Source ( 1

lilbridge writes: Huge reserves of "combustible ice" — frozen methane and water, have been discovered in the tundra undra of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. Estimates show that there is enough combustible ice to provide 90 years worth of energy for China. Burning the combustible ice may be a far better alternative than letting it just melt, releasing tons of methane into the air.
