They are now saying that methane is 33 times more potent a greenhouse gas than CO2, but I have heard it is as high as 40x.

If we burn methane, (natural gas), at least we go from methane release to CO2 release, which is a byproduct. That is a relatively good thing.

Unfortunately, it is crazy to think that we can harvest the permafrost methane in Siberia and Canada, because there is way WAY - W - A - Y - - - too much of it.

These giant blisters and bubbles are just the tip of a massive iceberg, which will only be getting bigger. I honestly think we are too far gone. At least for the poor and marginalised. The cowardly rich will always find a way out for themselves.
