Arctic Tundra Holds Global Warming Time Bomb – Discovery News

Arctic Tundra Holds Global Warming Time Bomb

Michael Reilly, Discovery News

Aug. 25, 2008 — Locked away in the frozen soils of the Arctic tundra, there lies a ticking time bomb.

Nothing more than accumulated leaves, roots and other plant matter, the unassuming detritus is rich in carbon, giving it the power to dramatically enhance the effects of global warming should it ever get into the atmosphere. But for now it mostly lies dormant, in cold storage in the permafrosts of Siberia, Alaska, and Canada.
