Thawing Siberian bogs are releasing more of the greenhouse gas methane than previously believed, according to new scientific research.
Some days I’m quite sanguine, even optimistic about our chances. Then I see something like this, and decide that, maybe, perhaps, we don’t have any.
Methane is a very powerful greenhouse gas, than there’s enormous quantities of it sitting around, ready to surface and cause a mass extinction. Well, probably.
And it’s too late to do anything about the thermal pulse we’re sending down into the permafrost that will release it all. Well, probably.
