Arctic Turning into a Sea of Foaming Methane. Positive Feedback has kicked in

category international | environment | other press author Thursday September 25, 2008 19:28author by n Report this post to the editors

You think The Recession Kicking In Is The End of The World: It's Not But This Might Be.

Frightening. This is the Feedback Loops that Worry Anyone Interested in Global Warming.
It was like an August Day today On My Fagbreaks. Not Very Normal. All These Distracting Crises!

"In the past few days, the researchers have seen areas of sea foaming with gas bubbling up through "methane chimneys" rising from the sea floor. They believe that the sub-sea layer of permafrost, which has acted like a "lid" to prevent the gas from escaping, has melted away to allow methane to rise from underground deposits formed before the last ice age.

They have warned that this is likely to be linked with the rapid warming that the region has experienced in recent years.

Methane is about 20 times more powerful as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and many scientists fear that its release could accelerate global warming in a giant positive feedback where more atmospheric methane causes higher temperatures, leading to further permafrost melting and the release of yet more methane."
