I think its a bit of a stretch to apply clathrate release to the P/T extinctions, it just doesn't fit the bill. Since the hypothesis has become so popular for the PETM people are trying to pigeon-hole it everywhere else, too (just like how people were trying to find impact events for every tiny extinction in history).

Mining would be especially difficult. When you're trying to mine a layer that's kilometers below the seabed it might be cheaper just to build the solarsat from the other thread :smile:
