The East Siberian Arctic Shelf has received more attention in recent years in regards to a potential contribution of the greenhouse gas methane, for the global methane budget, from several different sources. However, more studies are required to better constrain this potential accelerator of ongoing climate change.

A must and painful read. Of course the cornies will blame the victims. Or socialism. Or "political corruption". The socialists will blame wealth concentration. Anything but the monster in the closet. 8O

I have some experience being in countries that were in the midst of deep crisis. I was always impressed with how a country could be rocked with violence and instability and yet life seems to be going on like normal. Humans capability to live day to day in the midst of harrowing instability is actually quite remarkable.

It is the imagination before hand while still sitting in a relatively stable place that causes the most fear. When you are actually in it things become eerily normal.

I think we can expect this to happen as well if we see things continuing to degrade. The world will continue day to day amidst news of ever deepening crisis around the world and increasingly in our own back yards.

Yes Ibon, folks will adapt to a lessening standard of living and probably never equate it with want or peak oil. Though there may be an unspoken sadness about it.

But there's the distinct possibility of sudden collapse. A house of cards will eventually crumble. We are all dependent on one vast interconnected, just-in-time, multinational/dispersed manufacturing system :(

How many restaurants still process their own ingredients. They now receive their provisions in aseptic vacuum-sealed single serve pouches. Manufactured with fossil fuels, convenient sub assemblies and distant materials.

Thing could get tough.

Robert S. on the unihabitable mother Earth:

When two parties seeking a good end passionately disagree over a crucial issue it is sometimes the case that one side is flat out right and the other side is dead wrong. But what is more often the case in an honest dialogue is that both sides are expressing a part of the truth and it is the duty of us, as observers, not to take sides, but to open our ears and learn as the necessary conflict unfolds.

Valid Warnings Against a Dark Future

This week, David Wallace Wells painted a scientifically imperfect, but truthful in broad-brush, picture of a bleak potential worst case scenario if human beings continue burning fossil fuels while dumping such massive volumes of carbon into the atmosphere.

Wells’ New York Magazine article was accurate in broad brush in that it depicted a possible worst case climate scenario where the atmosphere becomes choking and poisonous, heat becomes so great that it’s deadly to venture outside even in New York City, disease vectors multiply, breadbaskets are crushed by heat and extreme weather, and wars over dwindling resources escalate. In the larger scope, if missing the mark on a number of details, David Wallace Wells and NYMag get it right. If we don’t stop burning fossil fuels, this is basically what our future looks like. BAU fossil fuel burning ultimately looks so incredibly grim it is difficult to fathom or even talk about.

Scientists have tried to warn the world about of threats posed by climate change—rising sea levels, horrific weather events, widespread famine and oppressive temperatures are often mentioned. But these nightmares aren't even the worst-case scenarios should climate change continue at its current rate, reports David Wallace-Wells in his grim cover story for this week's New York magazine, dubbed "The Uninhabitable Earth." Wallace-Wells interviewed a number of scientists to see what hell awaits us should we continue to fail to address global warming, and that future is bleak indeed, complete with rampant disease, famine, war, economic collapse, and an NYC as hot as present-day Bahrain.

We spoke with Wallace-Wells to get some insight on this apparent doomsday prediction, and there's some good news: if we take action, there's a less than one percent chance this barren dystopia will come to pass. The bad news, though, is that something must still be done, plus hamburgers are killing the planet. Be sure to read Wallace-Wells' piece in full (there's a light at the end of the tunnel!) and check back on New York's website for his interviews with scientists, which he'll be publishing all week.

Massive release of hydrogen sulfide to the surface ocean and atmosphere during intervals of oceanic anoxia

Lee R. Kump et alia

abstract:

Simple calculations show that if deep-water H2S concentrations increased beyond a critical threshold during oceanic anoxic intervals of Earth history, the chemocline separating sulfidic deep waters from oxygenated surface waters could have risen abruptly to the ocean surface (a chemocline upward excursion).

Atmospheric photochemical modeling indicates that resulting fluxes of H2S to the atmosphere (>2000 times the small modern flux from volcanoes) would likely have led to toxic levels of H2S in the atmosphere.

Moreover, the ozone shield would have been destroyed, and methane levels would have risen to >100 ppm.

We thus propose:

(1) chemocline upward excursion as a kill mechanism during the end-Permian, Late Devonian, and Cenomanian–Turonian extinctions, and

(2) persistently high atmospheric H2S levels as a factor that impeded evolution of eukaryotic [which includes all multicellular] life on land during the Proterozoic.
