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.
