  •  I've suspected it's getting worse faster... (14+ / 0-)

    than even the scientists studying climate change are forecasting.

    Positive feedback systems - especially complex ones - have a way of snowballing, and that's what we're seeing here, IMHO.

    The methane being released from the permafrost....

    And the hydrites starting to be mined from the ocean floor by the Japanese.....

    The melting of the hydrites caused by the warming of the ocean depths....

    The effects on the Gulf Stream caused by depletion of the Arctic ice cap.....

    All of these, and many more, are intermingled, and the sum of their effect on the climate, again IMHO, is going to be far worse than each individual one added together.

    But hey, the Koch's and their ilk are getting richer, so who am I to question them?
