What scientists found in Siberia is truly TERRIFYING! And it’s just the beginning



Scientists have discovered something truly worrying in Siberia. A huge HELLMOUTH crater has opened revealing a ‘lost world frozen in time’. It’s called the ‘Doorway to the underworld’ by locals.


The massive crater, located around 660 kilometers north of Yakutsk, is known to experts since the 1960’s as rapid deforestation changed the area. Without any shade to protect the ground from sun rays, the permafrost melted and the ground sagged catastrophically.

The humongous crater is referred to by the locals as the ‘Doorway to the underworld’.

Experts believe the massive crater was created solely as a result of melting permafrost in the Siberian Landscape.

This curious phenomenon transformed the surface in an unrecognizable way and is just one of the many terrifying events happening in Siberia as temperatures around the world rise.

The massive crater is officially known as Batagaika and over 50 years after it started appearing scientists are extremely worried because it does not stop growing.

With almost a kilometer of length and around 100 meters of depth, it is feared that in a few months it will reach the neighboring valley.

Last year, an investigation revealed that in the last decade the hole has become at an unprecedented rate of ten meters per year, although in especially hot years the growth has increased up to 30 meters per year.

“On average over many years, we have seen that there’s not so much acceleration or deceleration of these rates, it’s continuously growing,” says Frank Günther of the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam, Germany. “And continuous growth means that the crater gets deeper and deeper every year.”

Experts say that as more permafrost thaws, large amounts of carbon are exposed to microbes. In turn, microbes consume carbon, producing methane and carbon dioxide as waste products. These greenhouse gasses are then released into the atmosphere, accelerating warming further, reports BBC.



Sadly, the great floods of 2008 helped increase the crater’s size, and now, as Earth’s temperature rises because of global warming, geologists warn that the ‘Doorway to the underworld’ will grow much more.

The fact that the crater continues to grow at a rate that seems unstoppable does not only represent a danger for the locals but could end up affecting the entire planet. The removal of the permafrost could lead to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gasses that are kept by tundra under its surface.

“Global estimations of carbon stored in permafrost is [the] same amount as what’s in the atmosphere,” says Günther.

“This is what we call positive feedback,” says Günther. “Warming accelerates warming, and these features may develop in other places. It’s not only a threat to infrastructure. Nobody can stop this development. There’s no engineering solution to stop these craters developing.”

Professor Julian Murton, a geologist at the University of Sussex, said: “In some sense, Batagaika does provide a view to what has happened in the past and what is likely to happen in the future.

“As the climate warms – I think there’s no shadow of a doubt it will warm – we will get increasing thaw of the permafrost and increasingly development of these ‘thermokarst’ features. There will be more slumps and more gullying, more erosion of the land surface.”

“I think there’s growing evidence over the last few decades that thermokarst activity in the northern hemisphere has been increasing in extent and intensity.”

While there is evidence of what happened in Greenland, China or Antarctica, the history of Siberia is largely unknown. Knowing what occurs in Siberia and how, argue experts, would offer us a chance to better prepare for what can come. To gather more data, scientists plan to dig holes in the region in order to analyze sediments.

    Wonderful article about junk science. The sky is falling, the sky is falling. The heat source is not above the land here but is under the land. To make a hole it has to go somewhere. This is just an example of a sink hole in the development stage.

    People are unwilling to see the real science… Milankovitch cycles, people, cycle. No one warmed up the earth from the VAST ice age, did they? It’s a cycle. We better adapt or die. It’s nature’s law at its most fundamental.

  • M David Smith

    Didn’t Josh Gates find Mammoth bones there in a recent episode of “Destination Unknown” about the project to clone a Mammoth?

  • Talon

    All the planets in the solar system are heating up…..it’s galactic and paying a carbon tax fixes nothing. It does however enrich a few banking families and their children’s trust fund if you’re feeling magnanimous.

  • ray jones

    hey ivan you have yet to learn that global warming /climate change is a huge load of manure that the globalists tried to dump on evey ones head well geusse what ivan we see you and now we know who and what you are…..do me a favor and look at this on a geological time scale instead of the b.s. we want to tax you because we think your stupid ok

  • TexasRedNeck

    Al “Global Warming” Gore needs to have man kinds “Carbon Footprint” shoved up his rectum.

  • hammerstamp

    Oh no! It’s the sinkhole that swallowed half the planet and then burned up the rest. Give me money, I’ll fix it.

  • Nothing new here. This kind of thing has been happening since the beginning of time. More propaganda to prop up the false doctrine of global warming.

  • amongoose

    Then tax it until it stops spewing CO2 and methane.

  • Black Hole Sun

    We will never stop C02 from rising. Maybe its time to frame the issue differently. Treat C02 as a resource while mitigating it at the same time. Recent technologies have been developed to use it for plastics and concrete. After all its mostly carbon.

  • Lorayn

    Faked climate data to rob billions. We are in a global COOLING phase currently and will be for years…

  • Homi Cyclops

    What a bunch of nonsense. These “Far Side” scientists need to go home and find real jobs.

  • Barn Cat

    I doubt anyone is terrified.

  • Fish Deep

    I’m tired of winters anyway.

  • King Lear

    Another big hole in Siberia…snooze……

  • Ghostrider

    Yup, there it is. Absolutely terrifying. If it wasn’t for all of you goym causing global warming, the earth wouldn’t be swallowing itself. So what we need to do is place a CO2 tax on each one of you goys. This tax revenue will be managed by us jews at the UN so we can continue to lie to you and control you financially as we do through the debt based international central banking system. This will also give us better control of industries world wide essentially taxing production simply by placing a CO2 tax on companies. That way us jews can have more control over how much is produced in each country. Ya know, controlling the flow of capital goods just like communism in the good ol former soviet union.

    • jaguar

      You really are a douchebag..

  • Mike Weber

    All you morons talking about fake facts are being paid by the fossil fuel industry or in serious denial of reality. You need to wake up. It’s past time to find some solutions. All the real science says humans are effecting the climate. I guess you don’t care what you breath. I have grandkids and I’d like for them to be able to have a life free from corporate rape of our planet. Free of economic slavery. A change is coming and that state of denial just isn’t the way

    • Michael Glassford

      All the real scientists used to say the world was flat, and that there was no such things as germs?

  • RO

    Any global warming alarmist with more than two children can shut the f up. Add to the population and you add to the CO2.

  • Sam

    AGW is a SCAM

  • Carl Vanderwiel

    Massive crater in syberia rubish? Fake news?

  • Jhollman

    Terrifying indeed….. for the few Russians who live near there.

  • Gary Long

    Its still unbelievable how many people (Conservatives) deny global warming exists in any form. That is why they are so easily lead by a LIAR!!! That way they don’t have to think. Obviously this is WAY over their pointy little heads. Why don’t they just curl up with their Rebel Flag and let intelligent people discuss intelligent issues?

    • Driving for God.

      Google John Coleman, he will set you straight about what global warming is really about. This man is too old to be threatened with the death of his career or payed off by the globalists to propagate their lies.

  • Doc Knowles

    For those of you who don’t “believe in” global warming (as if it were a friggin religion)….tell you what….none of you have to pay a “carbon tax.” You can be exempt. All you have to do is head down to one of those Texas asylums and have a lobotomy. That way there’ll be a reason that you’re all so Fu*^ing Stupid!

    • Alan Christensen

      Aye, what’s up Doc? …. You are so Fu*^ing Delusionally Stupid, if for one F- ing minute you believe in the F-ing lie of Global Warming! Next, your gonna try an tell us the Earth is Flat and Chemtrails are the spraying’s of Vitamins. I’ll bet you still listen to the Mame Street New’s too!
