The Methane Bomb.
This vid gives Natalia Shakhova talking the background of why the ESAS (East Siberian Arctic Shelf) has so much methane built up, ready to blow as a huge bomb
This article gives a good background to her research
Here Nick Breeze posts a long interview with Natalia Shakhova
Nick Breeze told me that climate scientists are not concerned about the methane since the mainstream models think this release won't happen for another couple hundred years. Why? Because their models don't take into account many of the positive feedbacks going on in the arctic.
Nick Breeze then said how even if the Methane Bomb goes off he thinks it won't be more than 5 billion tons a year.
The upper limit of the methane bomb is 50 billion tons but even if it was just 5 billion tons in one year that would have a huge affect on global warming.
Because the real effect of methane is 100 times worse than CO2, not just 30 times worse as is claimed.
We currently emit supposedly just 30 billion tons of CO2 a year - so 5 billion tons of methane would be at least another 150 billion tons - and so global warming would increase another 1 degree C.
That is the BEST case scenario!! At that heat level we could not farm at huge scale since that 2 degree C. is a global average with the interior of the continents being much warmer.

A new report by the World Meteorological Organization concluded that carbon dioxide increased in the atmosphere at record speed last year and has reached a level not seen in more than 3 million years. At that time, the average atmospheric temperature was 3 degrees Celsius warmer than today, which melted glaciers in Greenland and the Antarctic and pushed sea levels at least 30 feet higher than they are now.
