In late February 2007, the website Hydrogen future we put the article "Degassing of hydrogen detected in the central regions of the Russian Platform," which is also widely known on the internet under the name - "Mysterious funnel. " Now, at the end of July 2008, we present new data on this issue.
First of all, we have to tell you - dear reader: hydrogen degassing is not only not ceased, but has a marked tendency to expand. It captures the new area and likely to become more intense. If a half years ago, we were quite happy with gas analyzers, which measures the concentration of hydrogen to 1000 Read more [...]

on 2 June. Preliminary expert analysis showed that land subsidence in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous region in Southern China could be caused by pumping water in the karst landscape.
In the conditions of the karst landscape of the increase in groundwater wells for water supply can lead to the collapse of Barstow and thus increase the likelihood of subsidence of the soil, said chief engineer electric Power design Institute of Guangxi MA Junguan.
The investigation is ongoing.
