… when I wrote this post. Not only have we locked in 2 degrees of warming, but as the permafrost melts in Alaska, Canada, and Russia, the methane pours out and creates a feedback loop. Methane has a Greenhouse Warming Potential of 25, which means it is 25 times more potent than Carbon Dioxide. Watch for yourself.
Shit! If the negotiators at Cancun have not seen this, then they need to read my blog or many like it. This is very scary stuff, and reinforcement that positive feedback loops are happening now, and Gaia is not waiting for humans to make up their minds if they are going to cut carbon emissions by 5% or 40% by 2020. We are experiencing catastrophic climate change right fucking now!
Sorry for the language, but this is scary stuff.
