It’s a good thing this is all part of some giant conspiracy, because if I thought scientists at the University of Alaska were undertaking good-faith scientific research I’d be really worried about this:

Those scientists put that methane there.

For another perspective, ponder the Storegga landslide of 6,100 BC that caused an estimated 70' tsunami to strike eastern Scotland. Two theories on the cause: (1) The release of debris deposited by the last ice age, and (2) methane gas imbedded in undersea mud destabilizing.

This mornings "Billings Gazette" (Billings, MT) contained an article that an offshore 9.0 earthquake could cause a 20-30' tsunami along the coasts of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

As I recall (always an important qualifier to apply), the Northwest and Seattle area was highlighted in a PBS show dealing with earthquakes and tsunamis produced sometime after the Sumatra disaster. Even with a warning system, do to the proximity to faults in that area, it is likely that there would be substantial destruction.
