Paul Beckwith on methane


Methane: Consequence and Accelerant for Abrupt Climate Change 
Paul Beckwith

 

Abrupt climate change, specifically Arctic Temperature Amplification is rapidly taking us on a collision course to an ice-free Arctic, and is threatening to turn vast stores of carbon in thawing permafrost and sea-floor sediments into methane and carbon dioxide, further increasing warming in a vicious cascade of feedback loops. 

In this ongoing series on methane, I discuss details of methane release on land, under the oceans, and chat about how it changes climate. Natural sources are emitting more methane with warming.
