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, April 23, 2015 (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

Arctic ‘methane chimneys’ raise fears of runaway climate change

Researchers say evidence suggests that the frozen seabed is perforated and is starting to leak methane, but other scientists urge caution. Scientists claim to have discovered evidence for large releases of methane into the atmosphere from frozen seabed stores off

New Zealand. Blast Traps Miners

Video Report: An explosion at the Pike River coal mine has left more than 30 workers unaccounted for on New Zealand’s South Island. It is not known if Methane Gas was to blame.

27 Miners Missing in NZ Mine Blast

A rescue team preparing to search for 27 men trapped inside a collapsed West Coast mine are still assessing the safety of conditions inside the mine. The rescue team was trying to make sure the vents were clear as there

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

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

Burning Hail in Revelation 8 Explained

Event 1 – Rev. Ch. 8 V 7 The year at the time of writing this is 2006. Imagine for a moment that each year for the next ten years more and more Methane is released in to the atmosphere.

Methane under permafrost could speed up global warming 20-fold

Washington, Sep 3 : Melting permafrost in arctic regions, triggered by global warming, will release underground methane. Once released, methane would speed up global warming by trapping the earth’s heat radiation about 20 times more efficiently than the greenhouse gas,
