Methane spikes to 2000 ppb in Utqiagvik (formerly Barrow), Alaska
Earlier this summer I began noting the troublesome spike in atmospheric methane readings from Barrow AK. Someone commented they were likely in error. Nope. These record high readings over 2000 ppb are real and part of a record spike up in Arctic methane levels this year. pic.twitter.com/7fqw0U7Ft1

Barrow is Barrow. The inuits can go and call it what they want .
Anybody have the monthly link for the Utqiaġvik (Barrow) methane levels?
I have tried google and I can’t find the link. I am interested in permafrost melting daily if such a link is available. Thanks.
Methane is THE driver for temperature rise. Carbon dioxide is not a worry in comparison.
i wonder if it could be western beaufort sea drilling or exploration.
The clathrate gun is being fired.
Based on the graph it seems like nothing different l

Don’t worry everyone, Michael Mann is here
Methane is nearly 100x more potent of a greenhouse gas compared to carbon.
That’s not surprising. The ESAS is on the move, as is the permafrost. So we are nearly 300% up on preindustrial levels and not about to stop. Add to that the possible reaching of the self driving threshold, and industrial leakage, and this is a bleak picture. 140 times more potent than CO2 upon release, 23 over a century……what could possibly go wrong?
