Climate warning as Siberia melts

The world's largest frozen peat bog is melting. An area stretching for a million square kilometres across the permafrost of western Siberia is turning into a mass of shallow lakes as the ground melts, according to Russian researchers just back from the region.
The sudden melting of a bog the size of France and Germany combined could unleash billions of tonnes of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.

Arlington - Jan 21, 2004
Massive Siberian peat bogs, widely known as the permanently frozen home of untold kilometers of moss and uncountable hordes of mosquitoes, also are huge repositories for gases that are thought to play an important role in the Earth's climate balance, according to newly published research by a team of U.S. and Russian scientists in the Jan. 16 edition of the journal Science.

I'm glad we're on the same page koravya, as so often we are. I just this minute put up the article from the Guardian on the same topic. Sorry I didn't see this first, but I'll go in with an edit and refer folks over here. Sigh, do you suppose there's any hope some interest will be generated?

All any of us who know and care can do now
is keep talking it up. Looks pretty much to me
like the die is cast, and the snowball is beginning to roll.
(Kind of a reverse analogy.) The man in the street will probably start caring when the droughts start diminishing his and her supplies of vegetables in the supermarkets, and/or lettuce goes up to ten dollars a head, and of course by then, it will be pretty much all over. For those who care now, well, the time is here, and the ice is melting. . . so we shall see what we shall see, and we shall do what needs to be done, as much as we concievably can. Right now, around where I'm at at this school, global warminmg is kind of a joke.
Most everyone has more important things to think about, like the price of gas and this afternoon's meeting on some corporate profit making concern, and the rest of the daily smorgasbord of trivial pursuit.
What is my role in this scenario, is the question I am currently dealing with, along the lines with reference to Ming's recent note, asking each person to ask themselves to say what they, he and/or she, knowing what we do, will do. Adjustment time is here. I don't like the thought that I am just sitting here on my rump waiting for those lettuce prices to spike.

Climate Crash: Abrupt Climate Change and What It Means for Our Future
John D. Cox
Joseph Henry Press, (2005)
A Lesson in Humility

"......
here’s what Mr. Cox didn’t say.
FORTUNE magazine wrote in a January 26, 2004 feature article titled The Pentagon's Weather Nightmare:
As the planet's carrying capacity shrinks, an ancient pattern reemerges: the eruption of desperate, all-out wars over food, water, and energy supplies. As Harvard archeologist Steven LeBlanc has noted, wars over resources were the norm until about three centuries ago. When such conflicts broke out, 25% of a population's adult males usually died. As abrupt climate change hits home, warfare may again come to define human life.
The same Pentagon report which sparked the FORTUNE article soon prompted another major story in Britain's The Observer which labeled the Pentagon report on Climate Collapse released in 2004 as “Secret”. After describing apocalyptic climate change triggered by global warming and the collapse of the Gulf Stream an important observation was buried in deep in the text.
By 2020 'catastrophic' shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war.
Let them that have eyes, see. Let them that have ears, hear. Let those that can read, study this book and begin to think about survival. Not for our sake, but for the sake of all of the souls we have brought into this world; the souls we will leave behind us. The quality of mercy be not strained and perhaps mankind might get one more chance at true evolution.
And the next time you hear or see CNN or the New York Times or the Washington Post try to reassure you that climate change is something that takes centuries, pick up the phone and demand that someone be fired for crimes against life. You might also do that the next time you see them report that oil will not peak for another ten to fifteen years.
Planet earth is a living thing. Its lungs are the Amazonian rain forests. Its heart is the core and the magnetic field that surrounds us and protects us. It is capable of eradicating the human race in a heartbeat and all the more likely to do so if we continue to infect it and keep trying to kill it. Our debts are coming due today."

Ultra Warriors crave Ultra Warfare. Go to the ones who are planning this scenario. Yes, it is planned this way! Blame the ones who are mind controlling the civilians into subservience and blinding them through false education to be sheep who do not question ''authority.'' Case in point? The recent results of the amplified, starwars amplification via scalar tech and HAARP magnitudes, ''hurricane Katrina.'' Pefectly geomentrical pentagram eye? Interesting. Yakuza? Hardly! Look deeper...

Another ''terrorist'' attack was planned only this type of Ultra Warfare weapon wasn't even thought about by the dumbed down who like to blame things on ''global warming'' and fossil fuels. Study weather war, HAARP, Ultra Warfare, Hyper Dimensional Warfare and you might, maybe, might just get a taste of what we have been going through and are in for. Being prepared means "Think for yourself: Question authority!"

Well, the NWO crowd has just struck another blow. I suppose we can blame this on Saddam, too? Thanks, K, for another interesting few links and thoughts. Gotta wake up as many people as you can. Maybe a few will survive. Maybe. But survival may be worse than death...at least if ''they'' have anything to say about it. And I think ''they'' do. "They" live...
