Back at Arctic methane, abrupt permafrost thaw increases climate threat says IAB Fairbanks, but actually they appear to be talking about releases to 2100 (rather than anything abrupt), which will be (according to surveys of experts) more than the models expect, but less than fossil fuel emissions, and about comparable to deforestation (so about 1/5 fossil fuels, then, if my memory serves me well). Stillnot the “mega-burp” some “hope” for.
