      There are many other reasons I can say that
      suspension is true. Some are simple, some are difficult to
      explain. Some are physical reasons. For instance, like the
      methane hydrate fields are only made of sand, and that
      says much about turbulance and compositing material.
      Better reasons are biological, having to do with biology
      and biological evolution of inhibitors of methane
      hydrates to stay near rivers deltas and still remain in
      the depths for the pressures required for formation.
      Think about it. If the only habitat of methanongens was
      rivers and deep ocean fields, how do methanogens get to
      new areas of food when one river dries up and another
      runs? Biology HAS to evolve a way for the two to meet,
      and the closest place will ALWAYS be the methane
      hydrate stability zone. Hence, the methanogens HAD to
      evolve a way to suspend and move about the oceans. It is
      the only surviving pathway. <br><br>But the best
      reason is that it unifies weather and climate's
      electrical aspects. That is because once a bouyancy
      mechanism evolves, slight changes in salinity, pressure and
      temperature of the stability zone alters formation of the
      methane hydrates, and thus changes the electrical
      properties of the oceans. This in turn changes climate, and
      would have been evolved to create conditions maximum
      for the methanogens survival, namely, created
      conditions of feedbacks to chaotic stimulas of climate that
      would moderate climate in a Gaia earth
      way.<br><br>Understand, again, that methane hydrate is extremely
      electrically insolating. I wonder how may here are familiar
      with doping and transisters--how that works. You see,
      with convection, you have a water and acid rising from
      warm ocean surfaces. As this occurs, the water vapor
      rises to lower pressures and temperatures. This alters
      the ability of the water vapor to contain the ions
      that it does.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
