The question is - what is behind the new gaseous smell and can we somehow harness it and build a power plant to export the electricity it produces? Now, we could certainly depend on the New York Times to produce its normal, fairly even, amount of gas, so we could install a major power plant right next door. Roughly analogous to, oh, Grand Coulee Dam, say. And this new stuff, since it is evidently sporadic, might be used as a supplement when available - kind of like the windmills in the California foothills.
Personally I suspect the VERY heavy air during the downpours helped keep some odors from the refinery lingering far longer than normal.I feel so much better that NYC's mayor, the erstwhile Mr. Blumberg, was kind enough to inform the citizenry that although he had no idea what was causing the odor, there was no danger from it.
Both of New York's NFL teams were yesterday eliminated from the playoffs. That might have something to do with it.
I think there must somehow be a link between the gaseous output of NYC and the Dead birds in Austin.
...there was no danger from it.What about global warming? Surely, as the gas accumulates temperatures will rise, followed shortly by the sea level. No doubt the emissions will stop and the odor fade once the city is submerged. Gaia in action!
DT,You have a point re: the performance of NYC's NFL teams. But weren't both playing away from town yesterday? Perhaps the stink returned with them on their flights home. There's no doubt they stunk.
