Siberian scientists predicted the ecocatastrophe
Tomsk scientists together with their colleagues from USA, Sweden, Netherlands, England and some other countries studied how the submarine permafrost influences climate and concluded that Earth are in danger. The research took place in Laptev Sea and the Arctic Ocean at the depth of 60-100 meters the specialists found huge emissions of methane. “There the submarine permafrost has been in contact with natural warm waters approximately for 9 or 10 thousand years and that’s enough for it to melt. In general during our expedition we detected about 500 anomalous fields of methane emission”, says one of the scientists Igor Semiletov. Thus if the methane gets to the atmosphere it will have a bad influence for climate. The scientists have four probable ways of scenario and the harsh one is ecocatastrophe when 5% of ice gases will get to the atmosphere and that will be no good. And if this scenario comes true will be necessary 70 trillion dollars to solve the problem. “This is the world budget of all economies. But climate is climate it has no national borders and everyone will suffer”, says one of the Russian scientists.
