OPEN THE GATES YE RULER? Mysterious Craters Blowing Out Of Russia Could Mean Trouble For The Whole Planet
Since 2014, several massive sinkholes have been discovered in the region. The first one reportedly measured over 50 ft wide. There are several hypotheses on how the craters are formed, but none of them has been proven, according to Dr. Vladimir Romanovsky, professor of geophysics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. “All these hypotheses, though, use the fact that temperature in the region is increasing,” Romanovsky said. The formation of these crater-like holes could have crucial ramifications for Siberia’s community and the environment at large. One theory suggests that the holes are created when trapped gases explode. Carbon dioxide and methane, both greenhouse gases, are released in the process.
