One Response to Climate Change This Week: Bishops Bugle, the Price of Heat, and More!

  1. I saw a film on how, during the great Permian extinction, frozen methane gas was released after warming from a milder green-house carbon dioxide occurrence. Methane is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide (regarding the greenhouse effect) and there are billions of tons of frozen methane under the sea and in the permafrost. In the Permian extinction, once methane was released, it kept unfreezing more methane… turning into a snowballing cycle. This could easily happen again… and has already started. More people need to change things and wake up!
