Afraid of Fire and Brimstone? Wait Until the Arctic Tundra Completely Thaws Out.

By the 2020’s the arctic tundra will have thawed enough to release at least half of the amount of carbon that’s been released into the atmosphere since the dawn of the industrial revolution. It’s estimated that 100 billion tons of carbon will be released by the end of the century. Most of that carbon is going to be in the form of methane, a volatile gas that tends to explode when it’s unstable. The Big Kaboom is coming folks, and big industry is going to be there to light the match.
