Greenhouse effect on many continents becomes dangerous. In Siberia, as a result of constant snow melt into the atmosphere poisonous gases, which for thousands of years have been buried in the ground. As a result, you can see how out of ice beneath the fire.
According to researchers of the Russian research station, located at 325 kilometers from the permafrost in Siberia, the melting of ice in some areas may lead to the release of harmful gases, which for centuries were buried in the depths of this frozen region.
Until 2007, this finding was not clear. Then responsible for the climatic changes in the international commission published a report in which it warned of the danger of leakage of gases. Including methane, which threatens to increase in air temperature in the world.
ANTHONY KETI Walter, University of Alaska Fairbanks: Over the past ten years I have noticed a hole in the ice, like a small lake. Also notice that the emissions of methane from there increased.
The report says that the gas emissions that lead to the melting of ice, may push the water level around the coastal cities, which would damage farmland and drinking water.
In addition, it will lead to the spread of plague and death of many living things.
ANTHONY KETI Walter, University of Alaska Fairbanks: Around us, a lot of carbon dioxide. And its a lot in the ground. And if ice melting continues, the amount of gases on the surface will double.
Specialists believe that alone frozen Siberian lake may throw more 50 billion tons of harmful gases. This is 10 times the amount of gas present in the atmosphere now.
< В регионе, где российские ученые продолжают исследования, температура воздуха за последние пять лет повысилась на два градуса. Это вызвало беспокойство специалистов, которые надеются, что таяние льдов прекратится, и пагубных последствий удастся избежать.
