<div class="quote-block">Scientists estimate that there are hundreds of millions of tonnes of methane gas locked away beneath the Arctic permafrost, which extends from the mainland into the seabed of the relatively shallow sea of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. One of the greatest fears is that with the disappearance of the Arctic sea-ice in summer, and rapidly rising temperatures across the entire region, which are already melting the Siberian permafrost, the trapped methane could be suddenly released into the atmosphere leading to rapid and severe climate change.</div>

The implications are horrific, but then so are all the other implications of all the other ways that our governments are screwing over the environment, other countries, us, the economy.......I'm becoming numb. Maybe that is the intention. Then think what they can do to us and we won't even flinch, like cattle on the slaughterhouse floor, no longer able to even run!

It's known since long time. I came across papers about this from the united nations and other organisations quiet a lot of years ago. Methane is also produced by all the meat industry and counts for a whole bunch of the climate change. I don't remember nor have anything under hand but you can check the <a href="http://www.worldpreservationfoundation.org/blog/wpf/" target="_blank">world preservation foundation.</a> among others.
