This article claims these, or at least many of them, are caused by methane emissions resulting from warming 40,000 years ago.”
Could this explain what created the Carolina Bays?
A MESSENGER flyby in 2008 revealed magnetic “tornadoes” – corkscrew-shaped twisted bundles of magnetic fields and plasma – forming in Mercury’s magnetic field.
“The area is riddled with what look to be water-filled ellipsoidal depressions oriented on a NNE aspect,” says reader David Foley.
23 Oct 10 – Reader Robert Bixler found these oval depressions in the ground just south of the city of Barrow, Alaska, and realized that they look very similar to the Carolina Bays.
28 Sep 10 – A couple of days ago, one of my readers, Phil Peterson, was looking at a satellite photo of southwestern Australia when he saw a bunch of huge elliptical shapes punched into the landscape.
I was wondering if these electrical explosions could be somehow related to the phenomenon called “Ball Lightning.” I know that the end result of ball lightning is a pop or small explosion.
Reference your discussion with Jeff Rense on Carolina Bays. I think you’re on the right track with your “explosions in the sky”. However it is lightning that created the bays; also observed in Australia.
1 Apr 10 — “Some 13,000 years ago the Earth was struck by thousands of Tunguska-sized cometary fragments over the course of an hour, leading to a dramatic cooling,”
Here is my explanation for why the Carolina bays are oval and oriented all in the same general direction, and why I think they have a glacial origin:
