Canada's Arctic glaciers headed for unstoppable thaw: study

Canadian glaciers that are the world's third biggest store of ice after Antarctica and Greenland seem headed for an irreversible melt that will push up sea levels, scientists said on Thursday.

Rapid Arctic thawing could be economic timebomb, scientists say

Rapid Arctic Thawing Could Be Economic Timebomb, Scientists Say: Methane Released by Thinning Permafrost May Trigger Catastrophic Climate Change and Cost the World $60 Trillion

THE world is on the cusp of a "tipping point" into dangerous climate change, according to new data gathered by scientists measuring methane leaking from the Arctic permafrost and a report presented to the United Nations on Tuesday. "The permafrost carbon feedback is irreversible on human time scales," says the report, Policy Implications of Warming Permafrost. "Overall, these observations indicate that large-scale thawing of permafrost may already have started."

This severe weather is not because of any man made global warming problems that so many continue to discuss. It is true that the general weather conditions of the world are warming or more rightly said thawing. This is a long continuation since that time known as the ice age. As these things continue to thaw it is only working to realign temperatures and weather to that which was before the great ice was put over so many places.

Diminishing ice cover in the Arctic region has increased the possibility of methane leaching from the sea bed, and scientists estimate the thaw could cost as much as last year's entire global economy. #Environment | Help Spread Me's HelpSpread this Message
