Watch Bubbling Alaska Lakes Catch on Fire #Methane
Seeping methane is driving a global warming feedback loop. Some Arctic lakes are starting to look like witches' cauldrons. The above video shows an increasingly common site in northern latitudes. As global warming heats these areas up, the frozen ground is melting. And when permafrost turns from solid ground to looser mud, it releases gases that have been trapped inside. The world's permafrost holds an estimated 950 billion tons of carbon. As it thaws, 50 billion tons of methane could enter the atmosphere from Siberian lakes alone. "That's ten times more methane than the atmosphere holds right now," Walter Anthony said. "Since methane traps heat so efficiently, temperatures will rise higher, faster."

Crude Solution: BP's Corexit on 60 Minutes
Follow ClimateState on facebook for climate research https://www.facebook.com/ClimateState When petroleum giant BP spilled millions of litres of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico three years ago, it was the worst ever offshore oil disaster. To try and break up that massive slick, vast quantities of chemical dispersant was sprayed on the spill. It seemed to work: the oil disappeared. But people started getting sick and then people started dying. Now, this environmental disaster has become a health catastrophe. The dispersant, when mixed with the oil, increases in toxicity by 52 times. This sickly, invisible toxin, still lurks in the water and absorbs straight into peoples' skin. In this special 60 Minutes investigation, we reveal the same chemical dispersants have been sprayed on the Great Barrier Reef and off the north west coast of Australia. They're still approved for use and our authorities are clueless as to how deadly they are.

The Extreme Greece Athens Fire July 2018
Greece Athens and the village of Mati were impacted on July 23, 2018 by the worst wildfires for the region in more than a decade. Almost 50 brush and forest fires broke out across Greece on Monday and early Tuesday. Ten were still burning late on Tuesday morning, including blazes in Corinth, Crete and in central and northern Greece. Areas around Athens were like a tinderbox, emergency workers said, after a dry winter and a summer heatwave in which temperatures have risen above 40C. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jul/23/greeks-urged-to-leave-homes-as-wildfires-spread-near-athens Teaser image by Pierre Markuse http://www.euronews.com/2018/07/24/greek-wildfires-satellite-images-show-extent-of-the-damage Footage via CNN, The Guardian, ABC News, Reuters, BBC

Biochar and Mycorrhizal fungi (2014)
AGU 2014 Fall Meeting / Biogeosciences: Biochar study results on interconnection of mycorrhizal fungi and biochar applications in a laboratory setting. Measurements of plant carbon allocation to mycorrhizal fungi have been estimated to be 5-20% of total plant carbon uptake, and in some ecosystems the biomass of mycorrhizal fungi can be comparable to the biomass of fine roots. Recent research has shown that mycorrhizal fungi hold 50 to 70 percent of the total carbon stored in leaf litter and soil on forested islands in Sweden. Turnover of mycorrhizal biomass into the soil carbon pool is thought to be rapid and has been shown in some ecosystems to be the dominant pathway by which living carbon enters the soil carbon pool. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycorrhizal_fungi_and_soil_carbon_storage Biochar: from laboratory mechanisms through the greenhouse to field trials Biochar science and engineering research has to develop a process-based understanding of how biochar acts to improve soil properties. In particular, we need a better mechanistic understanding of how biochar sorbs and desorbs contaminants, how it interacts with soil water, and how it interacts with the soil microbial community. These mechanistic studies need to encompass processes that range from the nanometer to the kilometer scale. At the nanometer scale, we need a predictive model of how biochar will sorb and desorb hydrocarbons, nutrients, and toxic metals. At the micrometer scale we need models that explain biochar’s effects on soil water, especially the plant-available fraction of soil water. The micrometer scale is also where mechanistic information is neeed about microbial processes. At the macroscale we need physical models to describe the landscape mobility of biochar, because biochar that washes away from fields can no longer provide crop benefits. To be most informative, biochar research should occur along a lab-greenhouse-field trial trajectory. Laboratory experiments should aim determine what mechanisms may act to control biochar-soil processes, and then greenhouse experiments can be used to test the significance of lab-derived mechanisms in short, highly replicated, controlled experiments. Once evidence of effect is determined from greenhouse experiments, field trials are merited. Field trials are the gold standard needed prior to full deployment, but results from field trials cannot be extrapolated to other field sites without the mechanistic backup provided by greenhouse and lab trials.

Permafrost may release largest Mercury source on Earth
There are 32 million gallons worth of mercury, or the equivalent of 50 Olympic swimming pools, trapped in the permafrost. For context, that’s “twice as much mercury as the rest of all soils, the atmosphere, and oceans combined. And it could be released. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2018/02/05/the-arctic-is-full-of-toxic-mercury-and-climate-change-is-going-to-release-it Ambarchik: Research on permafrost at the Siberian arctic coast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhGcJnRgzy4 Permafrost https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permafrost CBS interview with Chris Mooney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nWrAhINNbw Batagaika Crater Expands https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=90104&src=eoa-iotd All about Mercury, the Liquid Metal | Element Series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiWlthrtneU Picturing Arctic Permafrost https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=87794 We want the world to QUIT COAL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YJgAxLZPuM Methane https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/dv/iadv/graph.php?code=MLO&program=ccgg&type=ts Additional video via Pixabay.com

Little Algae creates Huge Melt Feedback on Greenland Ice
Algae responsible for large albedo feedback on Greenland's frozen surface, not only soot and dust. We believe gathering measurements from the surface of Greenland ice is fundamental to advancing our understanding of the melting Arctic. http://darksnowproject.org Video via https://www.youtube.com/user/greenman3610 Dark Snow 2017 Update “Am I really seeing that?” is a common sensation here, as below, what looks like a glimpse from the outskirts of Mordor. https://climatecrocks.com/2017/07/17/dark-snow-2017-photo-update

Natural Gas (Methane) likely makes Climate much worse
The evidence is overwhelming that natural gas has no net climate benefit on timescales that matters to humans. A new study found that just the methane emissions leaking from New Mexico’s gas and oil industry are equivalent to the climate impact of approximately 12 coal-fired power plants. https://thinkprogress.org/natural-gas-no-climate-benefit-b9118a087875 Natural Gas has Major Role in Climate Warming https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itgZA-1wtQA Daniel Jacob talks Methane Emissions (2016) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xayX5AZ0Qmk Harold Hamm: Natural gas from the USA is going to have a ‘world impact’ https://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/12/harold-hamm-usa-natural-gas-prices-will-have-a-world-impact.html Natural gas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_gas Music by TitanSlayer.com
