A Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck on daniel pinchbeck, 2012, and global warming

Whatever the Pentagon prophesizes, ecological feedback loops are currently accelerating the process of climate beyond earlier predictions.  Researchers from Oxford University in the UK and Tomsk State University in Russia have recently discovered that a vast frozen peat bog in western Siberia, “the size of France and Germany combined,” has started to thaw, potentially releasing “billions of tons of methane, a greenhouse gas twenty times more potent than carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere.”  As reported in The Guardian, this new discovery could cause a “10 percent to 25 percent increase in global warming,” accelerating current forecasts.  The increasing rate of ice melting in the Arctic Circle is forcing a similar reevaluation of data.  According to a new study the American Geophysical Union: “Warming in the Arctic is stimulating growth of vegetation and could affect the delicate energy balance there, causing an additional climate warming of several degrees over the next few decades.”
