Methane Venting Into Air Over Arctic Sea Ice
Using European Satellite Data (Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service; CAMS) I show that methane is now venting into the air at the surface in the Arctic in the Kara Sea off the Russian Island of Novaya Zemlya. It must be seeping from the ocean floor, bubbling up through the shallow water column and working its way through the sea ice cover. You may recall that many large “methane craters” have been discovered lately on the Yamal Peninsula which juts out into the Kara Sea in this region.
This is not good for humanity
