Re: Scary article to the extreme
I think that suggesting that "most marine species" won't survive may be a bit extreme, but that is sort of beside the point. Regardless of reality of that statement, the feedback loop potential, between methane releases from permafrost, coupled with ocean acidification is a very real, and very scary issue (most especially since Meghan is a much more robust GHG).
Ithe net, without taking a "political" stance it is pretty easy to understand. You can't add insulation to your house, and not turn heater down and not have it warm up. Folks tend to be pretty local-centric, and have a hard time seeing the earth a a much smaller place than it seems to be. I suggest that folks spend some time in the high and sub arctic to get a real feel for the change that is happening around us. The predictions of increased warming in high latitudes is coming true. The effect at higher latitudes is exacerbated. A couple degrees of rise in Kansas may have its own set of devastating effects, but when you are dealing with the margins of freezing ice and permafrost, those couple of degrees is huge.
Note as a moderator. I am fine with this conversation, as long as we can keep it civil and on topic. If (when) it begins to veer off to nastiness or name calling etc, we will shut it down. There are plenty of other places on the web to scream and yell. This is no one of them.
