In Financial Times: Methane hunters: what explains the surge in the potent greenhouse gas?

A large body of water in Alaska with some ice in the foreground under which one can see methane bubbles.

If the warming Earth is already starting to release more methane, then this vicious cycle — in which warming triggers more warming — could become self-perpetuating. Although that moment could still be decades in the future, once that tipping point is reached, it will be very hard to reverse. Anticipating this, some groups are starting […]
