"Humanity Close To Exploding Global Methane Bomb a new study indicates, reports Michael Marshall at the New Scientistas Congress Continues To Do Nothing. Oxford University scientists found that much of prehistoric Siberian permafrost melted when the Earth was only one degree Fahrenheit warmer than present. Continued warming from burning fossil fuels means it will soon do so again, releasing so much methane, a potent greenhouse gas, that the added warming will fuel further melting, further warming... uncontrolled by humans. Feeling the heat, yet?"

Thanks for the helpful chart and link, Joan. I didn't realize that the greatest volume of Arctic ice happened in April.

It is almost certainly too late to save the Arctic’s summer sea ice

"It is almost certainly too late to save the Arctic’s summer sea ice from near-total destruction. Let’s hope the same isn’t true for the biosphere. The time to act is now if we don’t want to betray our children and future generations."

It is not surprising that the public finds it difficult to understand the issue of climate change. To begin with consider the enormous difficulty of defining and measuring GMT—global mean temperature. The immediate obstacle is measuring and combining temperature measurements from around the world taken over land and sea. This must be done with great care since the variations that indicate global warming are in fractions of a degree over long periods and accurate historical measurements exist only for recent history. And this is merely the first in a long series of difficulties you must pass through before definite conclusions can be drawn. Nevertheless the issue is crucial and must be addressed.
