Default Warming Arctic may lead to methane boost, abrupt permafrost thaw

I have seen where this has started already in any many places above the artic circle.


Warming Arctic may lead to methane boost, abrupt permafrost thaw

As Arctic permafrost thaws, greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere.

This may accelerate abrupt thawing and influence the formation of certain types of Arctic lakes, boosting emissions even further, according to new research.

One of the world's largest reservoirs of organic carbon lies in the Arctic soil. As the permafrost thaws, microbes in these once-frozen soil layers transform the carbon into carbon dioxide and methane, which is then released into the atmosphere.

Wonder what influence if any the earthquake will have or if it was influenced by these factors...

Right now 2 things
We have more c02 than anytime since 18 million years ago
And we are increasing c02 output of c02 more rapidly than ever before

Actually jimbo, this is happening in many areas above and slightly below the arctic circle.

There has been several documentaries on TV, NAT Geo channel, showing from a underground cave just how it happens.

Plus plenty of methane doc's showing it burning in water under pressure, from the melt ground once lite it burns nicely.

.................................................. ...... Let's not start that anti crap again...

It is real and to deny it is foolish.. ie Trump... And I voted fror the fool on C.C. just to save the rich from paying we all could live like the 1800's some day.
Not in my life time but jimbo there are the young growing and what will adults tell them as they wade in 3 feet of water.. Get the mental image..
