  • Beware the thawing permafrost. Become a Video Lab member! http://bit.ly/video-lab In the coldest parts of the world, there’s a layer of soil that stays frozen all year. This layer is called permafrost; it exists mainly around the Arctic, and acts kind of like a giant freezer. As plants and animals in those regions die, some of them become preserved in this permafrost. But as human activity releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the permafrost is starting to thaw and shrink. That’s having some dramatic consequences — and not just for people who live in the Arctic. You can read more about the thawing Arctic permafrost here: https://www.vox.com/2017/9/6/16062174... And you can learn more about how permafrost is melting specifically in Canada and the Nordic region here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/f... https://ccin.ca/ccw/permafrost/future Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    AND THEY JUST ANNOUNCED THIS PAST WEEK THAT THE ARCTIC IS NOW MELTING AT 6 TIMES THE RATE IT DID IN THE 90'S. SO AFTER THE CORONA VIRUS, WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. PREPARE YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY.

    Not to worry: I just decided that climate change doesn't exist and this is therefore not a problem. It's that easy.
