Arctic Permafrost Is Melting so Fast, It’s Gouging Holes in the Landscape

“The impacts from abrupt thaw are not represented in any existing global model and our findings indicate that this could amplify the permafrost climate-carbon feedback by up to a factor of two, thereby exacerbating the problem of permissible emissions to stay below specific climate change targets,” said David Lawrence, of the National Center for Atmospheric

East Siberian Sea Is Boiling With Methane

“Danish climatologist Jason Box succinctly summarized the concern for scientists five years ago. After Stockholm University scientists noticed methane bubbles rising from the sea floor, Box tweeted, “If even a small fraction of Arctic sea floor carbon is released to the atmosphere, we’re f***ed,” as IFL Science reported.” East Siberian Sea Is Boiling With Methane

‘Devastating’ Arctic warming of 9-16°F now ‘locked in,’ UN researchers warn

“As the report explains, warming in the Arctic is occurring at least twice as fast as warming across the planet as a whole, thanks to Arctic amplification. One reason for this amplification is that  when highly reflective snow and ice melts due to higher temperatures, it is replaced by the dark blue sea or darker
