Methane trapped in frozen tundra may be a ticking time bomb. Aparently as much as 400 billion tons of methane may be trapped in the frozen tundra in the Arctic region. This is about 3000 times the current methane content of the atmosphere. Methane is more than 20 times as strong a greenhouse gas as carbon dioxide. The warming and thawing of the tundra may start a chain reaction which could release billions of tons of methane into the atmosphere which would greatly exacerbate the global warming problem.
*Costal ocean temperatures are so high that sea corals are being killed globally.
Up to 90% of corals are dead or dying in many areas.
*The increase in the temperature of the oceans is providing fuel for stronger and more frequent hurricanes and typhoons
*Sea levels are slowly increasing, threatening cities such as Venice, Italy to a greater extent.
*In Montana's Glacier National Park only 27 of the 150 glaciers which existed in 1910 remain today and they will be gone in only 20 years.
*In Canada, polar bears are starving because Hudson's Bay is ice-free too long each year so they cannot catch enough seals to survive.
*Frogs are dying all over the world - not just a few frogs here and there but WHOLE SPECIES are dying off FAST.
*NASA satellite data shows that Solar radiation reaching the Earth is 0.036 percent warmer than it was in 1986.
*Confirmed by a Swiss/German research team whose data shows that the sun is brighter now than 100 - 150 years ago.
