There is also the methane hydrates in the deep (and not so deep) ocean that might also be released by warming seas. That might not help either.
It’s all happened before, it’s in the book of Enoch, old Sumerian Cuneiform text and hidden in the bible.This is the real problem according to the experts, the knock on effects create a destabilisation, then you get a rapid acceleration of our demise, a one percent rise in warming = more forest fires = more Co2 and pollution = acceleration of....sort of thing.
Was all this not in the bible?
I'm a big fan of renewable energy, defended wind farms when they were considered a blight on our countryside etc, but I am realistic about what it can and can't do, and where it can do it, one thing electricity can't do in the UK is heat homes that are not at least close to passive insulated.
85% in the UK currently rely on gas for heating, to switch to electricity they would either need to rebuild their house or pay 20+ times their current heating bill.
I don't see any radical solutions in the pipeline there, and people like 'Insulate Britain' are regarded as nutters so I see no change in attitude toward insulation either.
I had a walk in our local country park today empty plastic water bottles everywhere. My generation drink water from a device called a "tap", we don't buy bottled water so I have to assume all or at least most of that litter came from the "concerned", eco-friendly, environmentally aware youngsters we keep hearing about.You can see how people take this serious when you look at grass verges full of maccie d bags and rubbish,coffee cups all over the place and an added extra to the mobile phone for the other hand.
Palm oil, one of the biggest cause of rainforest deforestation, is now in 50% of all the food we eat in the U.K. , not to mention cosmetics, imported from the other side of the planet and recently found to be a carcinogen!
It’s about 28-30 times, but it’s unstable, unlike Co2 and dissipates, Nitrous Oxide is the worst at 300 times more potent than Co2 and can be released from sinks in coastal and marshland areas if exposed to Nitrate and phosphate, which is happening at an accelerated rate at present, it is thought to be more of an issue than Co2I’m I sure I’ve read that methane is around 20 times more harmful to the environment than CO2.
