Oh and in case the world wasn't fucked up enough already

Many of these hydrates deposits are chronically unstable and could be triggered to release into the atmosphere by any drilling. This isn't just a matter of extraction leakage or added pollution when the stuff's burnt (which would be bad enough), this is a matter of rapid release which could significantly increase climate instability in a very short time.

That said, it could just all release without human intervention, but when sitting on a climate bomb the sensible thing to do is not to poke it.
