I was just poking fun at your comment. Isn't it senseless to declare what you call these bubbles "here", without telling where that might be?

What he is walking on is know here as muskeg. It is frozen dirt and plant material that melts a little in spring but not all the way. Methane gas is trapped underneath this and it is many feet thick. Buildings have been known to sink beneath the muskeg. Methane gas is a greenhouse gas, so the warmer it gets, the more methane is released and the more methane that gets released causes the temp to increase which releases more methane and so on. There is also frozen methane at the bottom of the sea and it has begun to melt as well.
