Arctic Methane & Jet Stream Disruption
Many people use natural gas to heat their homes, without realizing that it is primarily composed of methane --- CH4. Methane levels in the Arctic are much higher than elsewhere on our planet, and are rapidly rising. I discuss where it comes from (sources); how it is removed from the atmosphere (sinks), and how it varies with latitude. As the Arctic continues to warm, the levels are rapidly rising, with greatly increased risks.
