NASA HAS DISCOVERED ARCTIC LAKES BUBBLING WITH METHANE—AND THAT’S VERY BAD NEWS

Lakes across Alaska and Siberia have started to bubble with methane, and the release of this highly potent greenhouse gas has scientists worried. Last month NASA released footage showing the bubbling Arctic lakes, which are the result of a little

262 Foot Methane Crater Found In Siberia

The end of the world could be near, not because of a cosmic explosion or an asteroid attack, but because of methane. The discovery of the first mysterious crater and then two other large vents has led researchers to issue

Blood Rain Falls On India

Video: Red rain in India was a phenomenon observed sporadically from 25 July to 23 September 2001 in the southern state of Kerala. Heavy downpours occurred in which the rain was primarily red, staining clothes and appearing like blood. It

Siberia’s Permafrost Is Exploding

Temperatures are warming faster in the Arctic than anywhere else on Earth, at twice the rate of the global average. In northern Canada, it hasn’t been this warm in at least 44,000 years, according to our best estimates. That means

Burning Hail Struck India In 1991

At Redsky News on 24th December 2010, we received an eyewitness account of burning hail striking the Chittagong area of India in the 1990’s. An email describing this event was sent to our office by Nakul Jana who is an

Permafrost Loss Gets Worse

The threat to climate change posed by thawing permafrost, which could release stocks of stored carbon, is greater than estimated, a group of scientists said on Wednesday. By 2100, the amount of carbon released by permafrost loss could be “1.7-5.2

Global Crisis As Antarctic Melts

Global Warming continues to be approaches by governments as a “luxury” item, rather than a matter of basic human survival. Humanity is being taken to its destruction by a greed-driven elite. These elites, which include ‘Big Oil’ and other related

Scientists Doubt Gulf Methane Claim

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Scientists on Thursday cast doubt on a study that claimed bacteria ate nearly all the methane that leaked after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, saying its methods were flawed. Describing the findings as

Did Bacteria Eat Gulf Methane?

Last week The Associated Press published an article claiming that bacteria ate all the Methane gas emitted by the BP Oil spill disaster in just four months. This article was based on a scientific report produced by various authors one

Lakes a Big Source of Methane

Lakes and rivers emit far more of a powerful greenhouse gas than previously thought, counteracting the overall role of nature in soaking up climate-warming gases, a study showed on Thursday. A review of 474 freshwater systems indicated they emitted methane

Scientists Monitor Methane Lakes

Video Report: The thawing permafrost is emitting Methane which is 21 times better at trapping heat than CO2. It is also releasing carbon into the atmosphere which will double today’s carbon levels. The increase in temperatures caused by this Methane

Sliding Toward Climate Catastrophe

The Russian heat wave, Pakistan floods, and the breaking up of the Greenland ice-sheet — are these indications that things are getting worse faster than previously imagined? Asks Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed. The coincidence and severity of such natural disasters as

Arctic Ice in Methane Death Spiral

UXBRIDGE, Canada, Sep 20, 2010 (IPS) – The carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels have melted the Arctic sea ice to its lowest volume since before the rise of human civilisation, dangerously upsetting the energy balance of the entire

Rapid Warming of Permafrost

Permafrost warming continues throughout a wide swath of the Northern Hemisphere, according to a team of scientists assembled during the recent International Polar Year. Their extensive findings, published in the April-June 2010 edition of Permafrost and Periglacial Processes, describe the

Methane seeping from sea bed at capped BP Site

Video Report: In the short video below, methane gas can be seen seeping from the sea bed at the BP Oil Spill site in the Gulf of Mexico.

Arctic permafrost leaking methane at record levels, figures show

Experts say methane emissions from the Arctic have risen by almost one-third in just five years, and that sharply rising temperatures are to blame. Scientists have recorded a massive spike in the amount of a powerful greenhouse gas seeping from
