DW News published this video item, entitled “What does the Nord Stream pipeline gas leak mean for the environment? | DW News” – below is their description.

Major leaks on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines releasing huge amounts of gas into the surrounding Baltic Sea and atmosphere were reported on Monday.

Images show the surface of the sea broiling as gas erupted from pipelines 80-110 meters (265-360 feet) below sea level. The long-term impact of the explosion is hard to quantify.

ʺAccording to our current knowledge, the leaks in the Nord Stream pipeline do not pose any serious threat to the marine environment of the Baltic Sea,ʺ a spokesperson for Germany’s Environment Ministry told DW.

Experts say the long-term climate impact of the emissions will be substantial.
