Here's one explanation for the NYC stink

From Wayne Madesen:
Excerpt: According to U.S. maritime industry sources, tanker captains are reporting an increase in onboard alarms from hazard sensors designed to detect hydrocarbon gas leaks and, specifically, methane leaks. However, the leaks are not emanating from cargo holds or pump rooms but from continental shelves venting increasing amounts of trapped methane into the atmosphere. With rising ocean temperatures, methane is increasingly escaping from deep ocean floors. Methane is also 21 more times capable of trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.Mr. Vidiot was in Chelsea yesterday when it happened. He said it was pretty awful smelling. The EPA insists that there was nothing dangerous about the odor. But that's what they said about the air down at Ground Zero.
Mr Vidiot was in Chelsea yesterday and said it was a pretty bad smell. The EPA says there was nothing dangerous about the smell. Of course, they said the same thing about the air at Ground Zero, so who knows.
