Study: GLOBAL WARMING COULD MAKE MICROBES LIVING IN ALASKAN TUNDRA RELEASE MORE GREENHOUSE GASES, SCIENTISTS WARN

This Newsweek article discusses how global warming can impact the release of GHGs frozen in the Alaskan Tundra.

Scientists who studied the Alaskan tundra have warned that global warming could make microbes which live in the soil release more greenhouse gases. The permafrost soils on the northern latitude make up around 16 percent of the Earth’s surface, but harbor about half of our planet’s total carbon beneath its surface. As such, disruptions to this area have the potential to worsen climate change, the authors of the study published in the journal PNAS explained.
