The Global Methane Emergency Is Now
Headlines released today from the frontline arctic scientists are the most dire yet. On the current trajectory there will be NO LIFE left on the planet by the middle of this century if the human race does not make a total course correction. What is not mentioned in these headlines is that the math points to a total end of life in the Northern Hemisphere much sooner. Methane hydrate is already spewing from the sea floor as warm water currents thaw the formerly frozen gas deposits. Methane seeps are now also being discovered all along the eastern seaboard and the arctic tundra is thawing as well (methane is over 100 times more potent a greenhouse gas than Co2 over a ten year horizon). Here is where the equation becomes complex in regard to people’s perspectives and conclusions from different sides of this issue. Denial is epidemic all the way around in one form or another. First, though the assessment from the front line scientists is accurate in regard to the critical nature of the emergency, these same scientists are in total denial on the issue of geoengineering. The entire scientific community is either denying or afraid to discuss the climate engineering elephant in the room. Climate scientists are not even willing to mention the geoengineering reality, let alone point out the fact that geoengineering has made the climate situation far worse overall, not better. Geoengineering is not about making anything better for the common good, its about power and control. On the other side of the fence there is unfortunately a lingering refusal to examine current facts to form an accurate picture. A large percentage of the anti-geoengineering movement is still convinced of exactly what the power structure and the climate engineers want them to believe, either that the climate system has not been damaged or even that the planet is cooling. Geoengineered cool downs are still confusing many for the moment, but the overall meltdown of the planet cannot be hidden much longer as massive amounts of methane belch into the atmosphere. The article below is well worth the time to read. All must learn to “sift the baby from the bathwater” so to speak. We can not “connect the dots”, if bias and preconception blinds us to the facts. Though there are countless sources of anthropogenic damage to our biosphere, the ongoing climate engineering is the greatest of all. Once the issue of geoengineering is fully exposed, the climate science community will have much explaining to do. I look forward to that day.
State Of Extreme Emergency

PRESIDENT OBAMA MUST DECLARE A STATE OF EXTREME NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND CEASE ORCHESTRATING A WAR WITH RUSSIA. HE MUST RECALL HIS ENTIRE ARMY AND NAVY PERSONNEL TO THE UNITED STATES TO BEGIN A MASSIVE CONVERSION OF THE US ENERGY SYSTEM TO SOLAR AND WIND POWER. THIS CONVERSION MUST RESULT IN ALL 600 COAL POWER STATIONS AND NUCLEAR STATIONS BEING COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN IN THE NEXT 5 TO 10 YEARS. ALL SURFACE TRANSPORT BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC MUST BE ENTIRELY ELECTRIFIED AND AIR TRANSPORT CONVERTED TO METHANE OR HYDROGEN FUEL. IF THIS IS NOT DONE, HUMANITY WILL BE FACING TOTAL EXTINCTION IN AN ARCTIC METHANE FIRESTORM BETWEEN 2040 AND 2050.
The US and Canada must cut their global emissions of carbon dioxide by 90% in the next 10 to 15 years, otherwise they will be become an instrument of mass destruction of the Earth and its entire human population. Recovery of the United States economy from the financial crisis has been very unsoundly based by the present Administration on an extremely hazardous “all of the above” energy policy that has allowed continent wide gas fracking, coal and oil sand oil mining and the return of widespread drilling to the Gulf. Coast. This large amount of fossil fuel has to be transported and sold which has caused extensive spills, explosions and confrontations with US citizens over fracking and the Keystone XL pipeline. Gas fracking is in the process of destroying the entire aquifer systems of the United States and causing widespread earthquakes. The oil spills are doing the same to the surface river run off.
We are now facing a devastating final show down with Mother Nature, which is being massively accelerated by the filthy extraction of fossil fuels by US and Canada by gas fracking, coal and tar sand mining and continent wide bitumen transport. The United States and other developed nations made a fatal mistake by refusing to sign the original Kyoto protocols. The United States and Canada must now cease all their fossil fuel extraction and go entirely onto renewable energy in the next 10 to 15 years otherwise they will be guilty of planetary ecocide – genocide by the 2050’s.
The volume transport of the Gulf Stream has increased by three times since the 1940’s due to the rising atmospheric pressure difference set up between the polluted, greenhouse gas rich air above North America and the marine Atlantic Air. The increasingly heated Gulf Stream with its associated high winds and energy rich weather systems then flows NE to Europe where it recently pummeled Great Britain with catastrophic storms. Other branches of the Gulf Stream then enter the Arctic and disassociate the subsea Arctic methane hydrate seals on subsea and deep high – pressure mantle methane reservoirs below the Eurasian Basin- Laptev Sea transition. This is releasing increasing amounts of methane into the atmosphere producing anomalous temperatures, greater than 20°C above average. Over very short time periods of a few days to a few months the atmospheric methane has a global warming potential from 1000 to 100 times that of carbon dioxide.
There are such massive reserves of methane in the subsea Arctic methane hydrates, that if only a few percent of them are disassociated, they will lead to a jump in the average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere by 10°C and produce a “Permian” style major extinction event which will kill us all. The whole northern hemisphere is now covered by a thickening atmospheric methane global warming veil that is spreading southwards at about 1 km a day and it already totally envelopes the United States. A giant hole in the equatorial ozone layer has also been discovered in the west Pacific which acts like an elevator transferring methane from lower altitudes to the stratosphere where it already forms a dense equatorial global warming stratospheric band that is spreading into the Polar regions.
During the last winter, the high Arctic winter temperatures and pressures have displaced the normal freezing Arctic Air south into Canada and the United States producing never before seen, freezing winter storms and massive power failures. When the Arctic ice cap finally melts towards the end of next year, the Arctic sea will be aggressively heated by the sun and the Gulf Stream. The cold Arctic air will then be confined to the Greenland Ice cap and the hot globally warmed Arctic air with its methane will flow south to the United States to further heat up the Gulf Stream, setting up an anticlockwise circulation around Greenland. Under these circumstances Great Britain and Europe must expect even more catastrophic storm systems, hurricane force winds and massive flooding after the end of next year due to a further acceleration in the energy transport of the Gulf Stream. If this process continues unchecked the mean temperature of the atmosphere will rise a further 8° centigrade and we will be facing global deglaciation, a more than 200 feet rise in sea level rise and a major terminal extinction event by the 2050’s.
