icon Permafrost Melt


On Oct 15, 2001 ZetaTalk stated that magma had increased its swirling about due to the approach of Planet X, releasing heat, and this would be steadily apparent, on the increase.

Should one run statistics on the changes, one would see other than lineal changes overall. It is simply that the core must increase substantially in its temperature or motion for a small increase evident on the crust. This is not lineal, and the crust is pushed outward when increased heat and swirling about occur, so is less subject to rubbing one plate against another and there are more places where magma can ooze out in the deep ocean rifts.

These and heating of the Earth from the core, causing melting polar ice and glaciers, is not new but an existing trend.

By Sep 6, 2006, the journal Science and the journal Nature and report from Alaska were that the permafrost was melting faster than expected, releasing gasses such as Methane.Where this is ascribed to Global Warming, the permafrost is several feet deep, underground, and does not react to a degree or two of warming. In addition, heat rises. The permafrost is melting from the bottom up, as heat rises.

Methane a New Climate Threat
Sep 6, 2006
Global warming gases trapped in the soil are bubbling out of the thawing permafrost in amounts far higher than previously thought and may trigger what researchers warn is a climate time bomb. Methane, a greenhouse gas 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, is being released from the permafrost at a rate five times faster than thought, according to a study being published Thursday in the journal Nature. The findings are based on new, more accurate measuring techniques. Scientists worry about a global warming vicious cycle that was not part of their already gloomy climate forecast: Warming already under way thaws permafrost, soil that has been continuously frozen for thousands of years. Thawed permafrost releases methane and carbon dioxide. Those gases reach the atmosphere and help trap heat on Earth in the greenhouse effect. The trapped heat thaws more permafrost and so on. The higher the temperature gets, the more permafrost we melt, the more tendency it is to become a more vicious cycle. Some scientists say this vicious cycle is already under way, but others disagree. Most of the methane-releasing permafrost is in Siberia. Another study earlier this summer in the journal Science found that the amount of carbon trapped in this type of permafrost called yedoma is much more prevalent than originally thought and may be 100 times the amount of carbon released into the air each year by the burning of fossil fuels. It won't all come out at once or even over several decades, but if temperatures increase, then the methane and carbon dioxide will escape the soil, scientists say.
