A War Reporter Covers “The End of Ice” — And It Will Change the Way You Think About Climate Catastrophe
Two put this in perspective, the paper this is based on says we are expecting about 200 billion tonnes of carbon from permafrost by 2300. The new report suggests there may be an extra 100 billion tonnes of carbon. Global carbon project suggests we have emitted about 2000 billion tonnes of carbon from human sources up to 2015. But those numbers are not totally like for like comparisons as we expect the global carbon sinks to diminish in the coming decacdes as warming reduces their efficacy thus its likely more of the CO2 will remain in the atmosphere in the short term than for our emissions up to now. (Longer term atmospheric CO2 levels is a very complex topic.)
