Permafrost carbon feedback modeling has focused on gradual thaw of near-surface permafrost leading to greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate climate change. Here the authors show that deeper, abrupt thaw beneath lakes will more than double...
Chris Mooney3. We were intrigued by this study by Walter Anthony and her colleagues on Arctic thermokarst lakes, formed as permafrost thaws, and the major punch they could deliver to the climate system, since they thaw to considerable depths and unleash methane.
Sea-level rise will definitely make Hurricane Florence's storm surge larger and more deadly, scientists say.
Chris Mooney“If you start with a higher sea level, the same surge obviously will go up higher than without that sea level rise,” said @rahmstorf. “It’s a no-brainer. The only question is how much.”
Chris MooneyThis is the most indisputable way that climate change has made Hurricane Florence worse
