Arctic permafrost releasing greenhouse gases


Carbon dioxide and methane are the primary gasses that trap heat and add to climate change.

Arctic permafrost that is defrosting because of an unnatural weather change is discharging greenhouse gasses. Permafrost is the perpetually solidified ground that covers a quarter of the area in the Northern Hemisphere.

Changes in the way its dirt organisms capacity and the dirt carbon decays add to the outflows of carbon dioxide and methane into the climate. This further intensifying the issue of climate change.

Studies have proposed that permafrost could decay by as much as 70 percent before the century’s over.
