Call for action

As a result of emissions of pollutants around the world, massive amounts of greenhouse gases are threatening to be released in the Arctic. This calls for action. In addition to long-term measures to mitigate climate change and remove pollutants from oceans and atmosphere, geoengineering in the Arctic should now be included in our efforts to avoid catastrophe.

Very good stuff, the closer we move towards methane release, the more geoengineering will become main stream. I thought large scale methane ignition couldn't work, but if it could, it could buy precious time to remove billions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Short term geoengineering to prevent the worst of the "methane gun" is important in the utmost, and it needs to be combined with long term CCS and Carbon scrubbers.

If the Methane can be ignited, captured, or changed into CO2, then that allows humanity another small window of time to capture the carbon.

Dr. Klaus Lauckner of Kilimanjaro energy has been working up to a prototype that can scrub 365-90,000 tons of C02 from the atmosphere per year.

To read more about it, check out this "mainstream" National Geographic article:

If the methane in the artic can be changed to CO2, and MASS CO2 capture can be implemented on an unprecedented global scale, then humanity has a chance at survival.

Here's the prototype website:
