ScienceDaily (Oct. 25, 2012) — As much as 44 billion tons of nitrogen and 850 billion tons of carbon stored in arctic permafrost, or frozen ground, could be released into the environment as the region begins to thaw over the next century as a result of a warmer planet, according to a new study led by the U.S. Geological Survey. This nitrogen and carbon are likely to impact ecosystems, the atmosphere, and water resources including rivers and lakes. For context, this is roughly the amount of carbon stored in the atmosphere today. Read More

Doesn't sound good but nothing about global warming is.

No, humanity is more like a virus then a cancer.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

All ready said I would not care if I were part of it.

If it means a better place for the grand kids, and their kids, ( meaning every ones ) then so be it...I am not selfish.

I thought the big risk from permafrost thaw was the release of methane, which is a much stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. The so-called cancer of overpopulation is not a matter of raw numbers of people, it is a matter of the numbers that aspire to live the industrialized life-style that spews out CO2 as a by-product.

I think methane is still a big deal its just this other has become more of a big deal than they first thought.

Even if we kept pollution in check there is still only so much fresh water that is drinkable.  I don't think its a matter of space on this planet for people but water and other resources.  We will run out of resources before we run out of space.

Nothing about climate change sounds good if you are able to be honest with yourself.

What about all the gases that have leaked since the ice melted from the last ice age? It didn't kill the earth

That was one of the feedbacks which allowed the Ice age to end. After a certain point it reached an equilibrium where newly exposed soil and its vegetation sequestered as much as was been released and temperatures stabilized.
We are upsetting that equilibrium.

Bear with me a second here...

Remember back in the day whenever a political candidate with conviction would arise and that candidate could be linked to protestant conservatism? We would all hear- he's on the religious right "HE FORCES HIS RELIGION ON EVERYONE" ?? "They want to take away our civil liberties..."
Well, if I reject the global warming ilk that contends, that man is responsible for the bad weather we're having on a planet that has been around for billions of years and we’ve only been monitoring ozone for a couple. Does that mean I can reject the argument lawfully??
I don't think that’s where this public topic is going.  The goverment here to help us.

The global warming bible is about to become the book for the new religion-it's new. It's a good religion though, it's been written by nice people who write their own bible. And by the way I suspect you will not be given the choice to argue against it because this bible will supersede that theory about your God given unalienable rights, which is what came from the original Bible by the way-it's old. As some supreme court justice said recently "The Constitution has little purpose nowadays.
This is about a clever direction for us to all agree that we don't need our freedom here in the US. We would prefer to let the government handle that area. Much nicer people and they have a lot of scientist with no religious agenda-unlike our founding persons.
There's more going on here than meets the eye.
No you say?  Prove it!
