An ice-free Arctic by next year

Great 9 minutes of education on the consequences of the loss of sea ice and the subsequent release of methane.

Cameos from Stuart Simpson who describes the Arctic sea ice as decaying exponentially, and that it could be gone as soon as this year and Peter Wadhams who doesn't believe that industrial civilisation can survive a 50 gigatonne discharge of methane. Both are members of the Arctic Methane Emergency Group).

That 50 gigs equates to 10 times the amount of methane in the atmosphere than today,that would effectively double the atmospheric burden of carbon! Try and get your head around that this Northern Hemisphere Summer?

The thermostat is broken folks. It will runaway in an exponential, non linear way.

WARNING! Polar Ice Caps Melting Rapidly | Ice Free Arctic By Next Year!

Since the year 2000 we have had 16 of the 17 warmest years ever recorded, with 2016 being the warmest yet. 

As March almost ends it becomes clear that the ice caps are not the same as they once used to be. 

They are shrinking dramatically fast and are not following a linear equation anymore, but rather an exponential one. 

It is predicted that on the current course we could have an ice free arctic by as soon as the summer of 2017, and 2020 at the LATEST. 

This is a very bad situation, as the polar caps act as the earth's air conditioners and help to keep the planet cool. 

Also underneath the frozen Arctic lies a massive methane reserve, which if released by the melting permafrost will release enough methane into the atmosphere to kill all life on earth and render it inhospitable. 

Will the human race wake up to the imminent threat in time or will we continue to be blind and ignorant until it's too late?
