The faster the Arctic melts, the faster the Methane pools in the tundra get released into the atmosphere. Once airborne the full effects are not felt for 1 1/2 to 2 years before full greenhouse deployment worldwide.
Methane gases are 100X + more toxic to all than C02 in the first 10 years.
The Arctic gyre circulates all weather for the world. time is getting much shorter for all sentient life. No other way to say it, truth be told.
A team of Danish scientists monitoring the weather in the Arctic, particularly around Greenland, has made a startling discovery. According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, the massive ice sheet on the surface of Greenland is melting faster than it was at the same point during any prior year.
Even though it’s just April, researchers report that almost 12 percent of the Greenland ice sheet is coated with a least 1 millimeter of meltwater. The Danish Meteorological Institute stated that the last three earliest dates for reaching this milestone have all been in May.
It seems like broken ice melt records are becoming increasingly common these days. The ice sheet on Greenland lost a historic 562 gigatons (a gigaton is equal to one billion tons) of freshwater to the ocean. This amounted to an average global sea level rise of a millimeter in that year alone.
