Only ten days left before global warming Armageddon
A quick reminder that according to one lunatic, about 4.5 billion people
aren’t go to make it to their New Year’s party, or if they get there, they won’t be going home.
That’s right, there are only 10 days left
until the methane clathratepocalypse.
But don’t think it’s just lunatics writing for hobby publications who worry about daft theories, the New York Times ponders the same question
The basic worry is that as the climate changes, the ocean temperature could rise enough to destabilize many of these offshore methane deposits, sending them into the atmosphere. If you go beyond the Arctic and count deposits that exist off the margins of all the continents, there’s probably enough methane that a rapid release could turn the earth into a hothouse.
You can follow the countdown to global warming Armageddon in the sidebar, and I posted a great gift ideas for the inevitable resulting zombie apocalypse here
, though I think Amazon is out of stock. Since there are 10 only days left together, let’s have a bonus hottie.
Bo Derek was a ten, once. Those were the days.
