Thawing permafrost covering almost a quarter of the northern hemisphere could “significantly amplify global warming” at a time when the world is already struggling to reign in rising greenhouse gases, a U.N. report said on Tuesday.
Most of the northern hemisphere is ocean, but the UN report is close enough for government work. The important thing is that according to the UN, the land areas are mostly frozen wasteland – and are going to belch out massive amounts of methane and kill us all.
It is already happening! And this is on top of the fact that all Himalayan glaciers will be gone by 2035 ™UN.
