On Jan. 25, 2018 NPR’s Michaeleen Doucleff reported “Is There A Ticking Time Bomb Under The Arctic?” Doucleff talked with Dr. Thomas Douglas, a geochemist at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Charles Miller, a chemist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. They are worried that climate change is causing arctic permafrost to melt and release methane and carbon into the atmosphere. This could dramatically increase global warming. There is also a possibility that a bacteria or virus could thaw and infect humans.
