  •  Pingo or otherwise, if it's starting to happen (6+ / 0-)

    rapidly when it never used to, I think that would indicate we have a problem.

    •  Can't reallly say there is a problem or what the (0+ / 0-)

      problem is until there exists a reasonable degree of scientific certainty that the actual causation process for the phenomena has actually been identified....and that has not yet happened.

      •  between now and then, emplrical observations. (1+ / 0-)

        And since one of the hypothetical causal mechanisms is climate change, and this has enormous implications as to consequences, it's worth our while to step up the data collection to epic levels.  This should be done by assigning satellites to constantly monitor the area, and drones to be in the air at all times also transmitting video.  The drones might "get lucky" and catch something close-up, but more likely they'll be directed toward any area spotted by the satellites.

        The more, faster, and better data we have, the more quickly we'll understand the mechanisms for this.

        We got the future back. Uh-oh.
