Methane permafrost release not counted in by IPCC

While the IPCC modelers failed to incorporate this catastrophic loss of the top ten feet of permafrost, other researchers didn’t. One major 2012 study found that the carbon feedback alone from thawing permafrost will add up to 1.5°F to total global warming by 2100.

This new research is yet more evidence that given our do-little path climate policy, we are headed towards 10°F warming compared to preindustrial levels, which is terra incognita for terra firma and its inhabitants. Joe Romm Climate Progress
