Bubble, Bubble. GigaTons of Methane Trouble. – Paul Beckwith

Vast amounts of methane exists within ocean floor sediments on the Eastern Siberian Arctic Shelf, in the form of methane hydrates & free methane gas. Up to recently, gas release to the shallow water column (50 meters deep) & atmosphere has been slow, with the subsea permafrost acting as a million corks on a million champagne bottles to contain the methane. Now, rapid thawing of the permafrost has released 10% of the corks, allowing rapid ongoing increases in methane release. Our situation is dire, and we must declare a global climate emergency.

Methane is worse than CO2 it is not being factored in as it should and it causes one of the positive feedback loops that could exponentially increase warming.

Thanks!
