Still no evidence of any substantial releases one would expect from collapsing seabed permafrost containment.

For now it looks like the CH4 release from deep soil and seabed reservoirs will be slow. But at some stage there will be catastrophic degassing. Just like with land ice sheet retreat. Both Greenland and Antarctica will experience surges of ice loss associated with rapid sea level rise.

Too bad some of this is not happening now. It would help wake up the BAU drones. The current slow transition is lulling the masses into a false sense of security.

Dis,

That’s an unpopular position I have to ascribe to. There is a lot of confusion amongst even our own posters here. Most folks want the economy to do well in the short term and support policies that sustain that while at the same time realizing in the long term the economy is killing the planet and this economic model must die. It seems harsh to wish the economy to die or for a auick SLR event.

I think what we are both hoping for is a wake up call. Sometimes called a “learning event.”

I think Dissident will agree that once the oceans start releasing the methane and hydrogen sulfide, they're is NO mitigating or adapting to that, at that point we are toast. In fact, realistically what can we do to prepare for this now? I posit not much. At least with the economic crash, we can take some personal steps to cushion the blow
