avatar"a tonne of liquid helium leaked into the tunnel at Cern"
Isn't that stuff non-renewable?!?

Well, you could always distill it from the atmosphere... sort of renewable. Mostly it is obtained from natural gas which, for the present, there's plenty of. See:

The guy reporting on the leak sounded relatively normal... what's with that?
