Am I to understand from the original article that they have found the temperature needed to thaw the permafrost from the evidence of previous thawings?
i am also "assuming" that there was no runaway greenhouse effect in the previous thawings because i am "here" to write this post.
The question then arises if there has been no greenhouse effect how do they know one will happen this time.
They have put a lot of research into the thawing but I am not seeing much except speculation regarding "Runaway Greenhouse".

Current conditions are somewhat unique in the last few million years.

I don't know about runaway greenhouse effects; the point made above that it didn't happen with previous warmings is well taken, but as Cornelius says, things are different now (mainly because of human activity).

The danger is perhaps small, but the consequences horrendous.  The risk management formula therefore says, "Don't risk it."

Unfortunately we may have already risked it.  I would encourage research into ways of capturing green-house gases out of the atmosphere and what might end up being our only salvation.

Green house gasses are naturaly occuring and so is global warming.  We are just speeding up the prosses.

One thing i know its caused is higher prices on auto repairs.   Soon cars will be like the 18wheelers.
Anything goes wrong it has to go to the dealer to be repaired. They wont run after you change a part untill you log into
The computer with the factory programs.
