2.  Featured: Massive Methane Hydrate Destabilization in the Past with Profound Implications for Today’s Climate  

This paper supports the Clathrate Gun hypothesis. The last time the glaciers melted, 126 thousand years ago, the fresh water slowed the Atlantic Meridional Overturning(AMOC) current, there was less arctic water near the equator, the continental shelf waters heated up and released lots of methane, as measured in ice cores, and confirmed by other measurements. The same thing is about to happen again. Greenland is melting, the AMOC is the weakest in 1200 years. Greenhouse gasses and temperatures keep rising. By @PaulHBeckwith@Twitter.com

View In: Other Methane Sources
When pandemic-related lockdowns grounded planes and brought car traffic to a near standstill in early 2020, transport emissions plummeted, leading to a drop in levels of a short-lived gas that scrubs methane from the atmosphere. The slump in traffic helped fuel a spike in methane, a new study finds.Rea...
