According to Russian news agency RIA-Novosti, the team of researchers, led by Charles Coven, developed a new model of melting of permafrost. An analysis of the new model showed that, due to the melting of permafrost in areas in the polar latitudes of the Arctic- in the Earth's atmosphere can be allocate of 25-85 billion tons of gases per year (in terms of carbon). According to RIA-Novosti, the whole ground in permafrost regions will allocate 25-85 billion tons of carbon at a certain average value of 62 billion tons of carbon, because of this ground in permafrost regions can move from the absorption of gases (measured in 68 billion tons) - to their release. These fantastic estimates suggest a start in the near future, such a global catastrophe, compared with which even a collision with a large meteorite, and nuclear war, may seem a trifle. If the above estimates are correct, then it follows from the fact that the soil near-polar regions of Earth will cease to absorb carbon dioxide and it will allocate to the atmosphere as a result of global greenhouse effect occurs, which could lead to raising the average temperature on Earth at least 10 degrees Celsius, because of this life in the regions at the equator and in the equatorial regions of the Earth will become impossible, these regions become scorched desert. Cause mistrust and figures estimated emissions of greenhouse gases to tens of billions of tons, and it is well known that even the biggest volcanic eruptions, which result in greater crop failures in the past, estimated at several hundred times weaker. For example, when volcano Laki in 1783 stood out "only" 90 million tons of greenhouse gases. Therefore, estimates of emissions to 25-85 billion tons of carbon can be greatly exaggerated, have nothing to do with the actual situation in the polar regions of Earth.
