Beijing claims landmark success in mining flammable ice

Recommended Posts

China has successfully mined flammable ice at sea after nearly two decades of research work. 

The flammable ice was discovered in the South China Sea in 2007. 

According to Chinese state run Xinhua, one cubic metre of combustible ice is equal to 164 cubic metres of natural regular gas. 

The Minister claimed that it was a major breakthrough that may lead to a global energy revolution.

The amount of predicted resources is equivalent to more than twice that of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.

As the minister suggests this could lead to a global energy revolution! Something to watch for sure!

I wonder how much this energy will cost by the time it gets to a consumer.  It must be feasible or they wouldn't be doing it.  Waits for declaration of war. lol
