It’s gonna spread, everyone knows this. It will continue along the seam. It will emit crazy amounts of CO2. It already does.

Is this the Centralia fire? Because everyone is aware that it will continue to spread for another 250 years, give or take of course. The who seam is going to be burned and estimates is that there is enough coal to last 250 years. Keep in mind the fire actually started in the 1962, so it was burning for about 61 years, as of now.

The article says this fire has no discernable connection to centralia and has only been burning for 19 years, but as some point they will connect

The article does say that PA DEP claims they are not connected, but they also admit:

>that monitoring had been limited to surface surveys with "thermal imaging cameras."

So, it is very possible that there is a connection deeper than what they have probed. It almost seems like the DEP is fearful to actually discover that connection.

More like there are no funds or technology available to monitor it.

The tv station could run this entire story in one clip instead of the stupid 2-minute teaser segments that essentially repeats old news.
