This year, three huge siberian craters appeared, giving rise to numerous theories regarding the cause of them. In July 2014, a huge crater with a diameter of 80 meters and a depth of 30 meters, suddenly formed in the Yamal Peninsula (Siberia), in a province whose name translates as ‘End of the World‘.

After lot of studies in the area, Russian experts have concluded that these sibierian craters were caused by gas explosions, which are related to global warming.

The crater is most likely the result of excessive pressure buildup under the ground because of temperature changes in the region” said Andrei Plekhanova, a renowned researcher at the Centre for Arctic studies.

There is a version that the Bermuda Triangle is a consequence of gas hydrates reactions. They start to actively decompose with methane ice turning into gas. It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas. That makes ocean to heat up and ships sink in its waters mixed with a huge proportion of gas. The same leads to the air to get supersaturated with methane, which makes the atmosphere extremely turbulent and lead to aircraft crashes.” said russian Igor Ieltov, head of the Institute Trofimuk.

Scientist Vladimir Potapov said that these theories will continue to be studied.

“Craters are extremely interesting from a scientific standpoint” he said…
