Inside mysterious Siberian sinkholes


Giant sinkholes which started appearing in Yamal Peninsula, Russia last year remain a mystery to scientists investigating this phenomena around the world.

Theories about what's causing them are numerous… from UFO's to natural gas which is abundant in this region. Locals, however, are not looking for scientific explanation. They prefer to believe that giant, perfectly round craters, have a 'connection to another world'.

Vasily Bogoyavlensky, head of the geological and geophysical lab working on the site, told RT he believes gas is the unique cause of these phenomena, because the gas, thanks to gravity, tries to come to the surface, searches for fractures and cracks, and goes through to the surface.

An RT documentary has traveled to the region to try and lift the veil behind the mystery:

  1. An HAARP site in southern Alaska is purposely altering normal weather patterns and forcing warmer air north to that russian area which inturn is melting frozen methane into a gas and in time the gas must release up and through the soft upper land mass surface. Methane is 30x’s worse than Co2. NASA has measured methane spikes in the atmosphere. The big question for me is…why would the USA WANT to accelerate Global Warming by intentionally changing weather patterns? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMZbvrs51cg
