That's really the part which has me worried. The predicted temperature rise due to CO2 is bad enough, but if the methane in the methane hydrates is released, we could be looking at a Venus scenario.I believe we're very near to or have already the crossed the point of no return. Melting glaciers accelerating their own melting, buried methane deposits waiting to burst forth, and what not. Perhaps time to migrate to what are now harshly colder climes.
Interesting. I know I had to deal with some code stuff and install additional vents when I closed some off during the remodel. I'll need to read though that more carefully when I don't have a baby on my lap, but it is interesting how they say the humidity issue is better without the vents? None of the houses around here have that plastic vapor barrier on the ground...For anyone interested in improving the environmental efficiency of your building close off your crawlspace vents, insulate the crawlspace/basement area, and treat the crawlspace/basement area as conditioned space.

Tehtering or Mobile Hotspot is about $21 per minute out here though so I'll pass on that!Work phone comes with unlimited global voice and data. and I did check work email and voice mail in addition to administering my mining rig via TeamViewer, when I could get 3g in San Juan.
I thought the openings were wider than what you describe. My bad. Also, the pictures in the document you linked had me thought about old bricks and wood constructions, which wouldn't sustain high level of humidity too well. All the houses here have concrete basements, so even with a vented crawled space, they wouldn't collapse after only two decades, unless the concrete used would contain a lot of pyrite.I'm curious why you say the house would collapse? The vents are off the ground and have physical barriers for critters.
Not really. The person that was flying in to help me with the surgery could not make it. The flight was cancelled because there was no plane available, although the weather would have been OK at the departure and arrival cities. :frusty:Hope everyone here affected by this is doing ok...
More A/C weather next week. At least it's better than last week.
