Methane, the Gakkel Ridge and Human Survival

Here is another good reason for an ecological lifestyle and culture. Climate warming is starting to release gargantuan amounts of methane from permafrost melting and methane clathrates in ocean sediments.  If we don’t stop global warming, we could go into a much hotter earth relatively quickly.  Think decades. Not something we like to hear.  John James has just uploaded the latest information on this phenomenon.

Methane, the Gakkel Ridge and Human Survival

Here is my email to him:

Hello John James,

Thank you for the up-to-date report.  I have been aware of this danger for over 10 years, but the recent research shows has fast it is proceeding.

I am also aware of the solutions to this problem.
Read Michael Pilarski’s “Carbon Sequestration Proposal for the World” on the Inland Northwest Permaculture Guild website.

Alas, some of us see the problem. Far less of us see the solution. Alas, alas, the powers that be are doing all they can to suppress this information getting out or implementing solutions.

The chances of humanity choosing to greatly reduce their fossil fuel consumption voluntarily look very small to me. Change is in the wind. Whether from societal changes and/or from climate meltdown. Local, permaculture and living lightly all sound like good things to be doing.  

Thank you for spreading the word, and I hope that somehow this can reach a lot of humanity.  - Michael Pilarski
