The US Geological Survey argues that methane hydrates offer an “immense carbon reservoir”, twice all other known fossil fuels on earth. That is potentially one huge amount of carbon that
"could be"
burnt or released into the atmosphere.

The Washington Post points out the blindingly obvious: If a “significant fraction” of hydrates are developed the bottom line is that
“It could"
prove impossible to keep global warming below the goal of 2°C”.
