    Forget the carbon, worry about the methane......

    Are Siberia’s methane blow-holes the first warning sign of unstoppable climate change?

    WHAT do three enormous craters in the Siberian wastelands have to do with a terrified American climate scientist? Methane. And that’s something to scare us all.
    The end of the world could be starting right now — in a frozen Siberian wasteland known as Yamal. It translates as “The End of the Land”.
    The first mysterious crater was spotted by oil workers earlier this month. It was an 80m wide cavern that reached deep into the earth.
    Since then, the Siberian Times reports goatherds have found a further two enormous vents in the ground.

    Russian researchers have returned from their investigation of the first find and taken water and soil samples to help resolve how the hole was formed.
    Some say aliens. Some say they’re “hellmouths” — gateways to the undead.
    But scientists already have a pretty good idea.
    Explosive vents of vast quantities of methane gas.
    Now a new, ominous, name could be attached to them: Dragon’s mouths.
    Here’s where a blog posted by American professor in glaciology Dr Jason Box at the weekend comes in: “The dragon breath hypothesis has me losing sleep.”



    Dr Box highlights signs of alarmingly huge spikes of methane being released into the atmosphere above Siberia.
    It’s what that means which has him alarmed.
    He’s not mincing his words.
    He’s issued a no-holds barred call to action.
    “This is an all hands on deck moment,” he writes. “We’re in the age of consequences.”
    And he has the “WTF” results from atmospheric measurements to back him up.

    If even a small fraction of Arctic sea floor carbon is released to the atmosphere, we're f'd.

    Siberia’s blow-holes ‘damn scary’

    Siberia has a single ground-based climate observing station, at a place called Tiksi.
    But the numbers coming out of the remote research post are startling — and they’re backed up by similar stations in Alaska and Canada.
    “I can tell you (these are) really high end,” Dr Box writes.
    It’s the erratic, but enormous, spikes in methane readings coming from Tiksi — which Dr Box ominously calls “dragon breaths” — that may be tied to the enormous blow holes now appearing in Siberia’s desolate landscape.
    He’d much rather the “dragon” remains dormant.

    This is true. We are all doomed to burn in Hades for all Eternity.
