I was sent an article yesterday that described a worst case scenario in the BP Gulf oil spill which described a possibility that sounded too horrifying to be true. The report said the BP drill site is directly over a massive underground reservoir of methane that could result in a huge explosion that would create “a supersonic tsunami” that “would literally sweep away everything from Miami to the panhandle in a matter of minutes. Loss of human life would be virtually instantaneous and measured in the millions.”

Sounded like fear mongering to me, until I saw this report from AP today:

    I do think something is way worse about the gulf ‘event’ than we are being told. Gov. hesitation may be they have to study methane problem and can’t admit it.
