De gifbeker van 2020 is nog niet leeg… 'Scientists have found evidence that frozen methane deposits in the Arctic Ocean have started to be released over a large area of the continental slope off the East Siberian coast’
The fact that this was anticipated makes it no less worrying. It's not a "methane bomb", but it's one more positive feedback making our own profligate greenhouse emissions so much worse.
If we lose the Arctic, we lose the climate fight. Irreversible changes don't loom, they may be already here. We need to use all the tools in our arsenal, starting w fast mitigation and cuts to #superpollutants, to have a chance to win this fight

A very dangerous feedback loop that will accelerate #ClimateChange : Arctic methane deposits starting to release. Cc ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦
What's wrong with "overshooting" greenhouse gas targets, then cleaning up later with better technologies? Here's one problem: release of vast quantities of frozen methane - danger of catastrophic positive feedback effect.
Could this be the start of a very dangerous new global heating loop?
This seems to me like a pretty unhelpful article
