Now Is the Time To Stop Climate Change:

If ever there was a time for governments to take measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, this is the time. A study by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) of the Arctic Council states that a climate “tipping point” could happen in the next 20 years because the permafrost region of the Arctic is melting and it contains large amounts of carbon dioxide. The tipping point could occur between 2020 and 2030, according to the study. “Our research shows that the release of carbon from permafrost will result in an irreversible climate tipping point in only 20 years... Once the frozen carbon thaws out and decays, there is no way to put it back into the permafrost,” said Kevin Schaefer of the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Boulder, Colorado. Schaefer said that the study has two important messages: melting permafrost releases large amounts of carbon,...
