Japan Plans To Use Sub-Sea Methane For Fuel

This is very interesting.  Who knew?  If anyone remembers Julian Simon, the optimist who debated the Club of Rome guys in the 1970s who said the world was running out of numerous natural resources, he  would have liked this one (LINK):

Japan cracks seabed 'ice gas' in dramatic leap for global energy 

Japan has extracted natural "ice" gas from methane hydrates beneath the sea off its coasts in a technological coup, opening up a super-resource that could meet the country's gas needs for the next century and radically change the world's energy outlook.  
Definitely worth a read.
