Yes, when I was living in Derby there was an infamouse landfill gas explosion which destroyed a house, fortunately with no casualties.

Loscoe Landfill Explosion

There have been others around the world.

Landfill gas management is a nice little earner...

£30k here

"power stations are subject to same pollution limits under EU IED, whether they burn coal, gas or wood."

Except that only the wood-burning ones get the subsidies, because of their CO2 'neutrality'.

The only difference between wood and coal is the timescale.

If its not significant why not just vent it?.

Fascinating! They know for certain Fairbourne will be inundated.

I wonder if Edward I had similar fears 730 years ago when he built a castle 12 miles up the coast at Harlech.

".....The sea originally came much closer to Harlech than in modern times, and a water-gate and a long flight of steps leads down from the castle to the former shore, which allowed the castle to be resupplied by sea during sieges....."

Nowadays Harlech Castle is about 1km inland from the sea with Royal St David's Golf Club in-between.

Guardian braces for job cuts as it looks to slash costs by 20pc.

Not quite sure why this was in the Telegraph.

Just gotta love this in today's DT:

Welsh village to sue government over 'alarmist' rising sea level claim.

Residents of Fairbourne, in Gwynedd, say predictions of that the sea level will rise by a metre a year have hit house prices and investment

Vernon: There is only so much that can be stored. I think it is flared for safety reasons and also as burning it gets rid of some of the nasty smells.

Philip B: if its a frequent occurrence I would have thought it was worth capturing. Even the gas from old landfill sites is put to some use. If its not significant why not just vent it?.
