I think this is going to be an ongoing conversation on Facebook
High methane readings at Barrow, AlaskaSeemorerocks
Barrow Alaska is back online
When I last looked in May last year there was something wrong with the readings and I was unable to get comвaritive readings and that seemed wrong.
I recorded a single anomalous reading of 2800 ppb then, but if you look at the graph you can see what the average readings were at the time.
I am told that we are supposed to be at the bottom of the annual low (July and August) in methane readings in the atmosphere although I'm not sure why that would be the case.

Here are the latest figures (thanks to Joe Neubarth on Abrupt Climate Change on Facebook)
Here is today's data from Mauna Loa, Hawaii far to the south from Barrow Alaska. Note that the Methane in the Arctic is way higher than Hawaii, thus confirming substantial methane release from that region.
P.S. Here is last year's data. Notice the bottom of the V in July and August. What we are seeing this year is a vast departure from the norm and might possibly portend the end of the Earth in the next few months if this methane release gets out of control
Compared with when, I wonder
