Alaska is melting and it's likely to accelerate global heating


***This article highlights the problem of permafrost melting and releasing methane. Per other articles I have read, this methane is not captured in many global warming models***



The state has just had its warmest spring on record, causing permafrost to thaw and dramatically reshaping some areas.

1. Thanks for posting



This is from a British newspaper. I wonder if the British are more aware of this than Americans. I wonder if Alaskan newspapers are reporting this, land of Trumpians and hence climate change deniers.

2. I think for sure British and other European countries report far more on climate change.

I also see more on international news about extreme weather around the world like heat waves in India, floods in Mexico and China.

3. I am in Ireland right now

And they are very informed on whatís going on in America.

They donít totally understand how we let it happen, but they do understand.

They think T is a total goof like Boris who is about to win in England, said he reminds them of T.
