On 14 January 2022 Wired reported:
A perfect storm is ravaging the Arctic -- literally. As the world warms, more lightning systems are igniting more peat fires. They burn through ancient buried plant material and release great plumes of greenhouse gases, which further warm the planet. At the same time, as plant species march north thanks to a more hospitable climate, the Arctic is greening. That darkens the landscape and absorbs more of the sun's energy, further heating the region. It also provides more fuel to burn; dried plants above ground ignite more readily than permafrost, which is made from frozen dirt or sand or gravel mixed with dead plants. But permafrost is now thawing so rapidly that it's creating massive sinkholes in the earth, up to 100 feet wide and 10 feet deep, a process known as thermokarst.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
... 'With thermokarst you expose deeper and deeper layers of permafrost to the thawing, much more efficiently than without thermokarst,' says University of Alaska Fairbanks permafrost geophysicist Vladimir Romanovsky, who wasn't involved in the work. 'The thermokarst process can turn a surface which was relatively dry into some sort of wetland, and wetlands are producers of of methane.'
