    In 2006, Methane levels began to rapidly increase in Earth's atmosphere and haven't showed signs of slowing down. What is causing this mysterious spike? Are humans to blame or can this be attributed to the planet entering a ice age termination event?

      Not only are we still in an ice age, we are only just recovering from an almost catastrophic fall in Co2 levels, if the Co2 had dropped any further we would not be here now! because ALL plant life would have died, followed closely by ALL herbivores dying and finally ALL carnivores Dying, We might have survived(barely)by creating individual grow areas, I.E. greenhouses where we artificially increase the Co2. The Dutch already enrich their greenhouses with Co2 to get larger yields and better quality produce. Scientist know this, but still go along with the Co2 is evil so must be reduced mantra, mainly because research money is only available for any research that fosters the Global warming/Climate change narrative. The only scientists that speak out against Climate change are either retired(not dependant on grants)scientists, including Nobel prize winners, or Scientists and researchers who are of independent means.

    Nice. I remember people talking about the methane issue 20 years ago. There's ungodly amounts of methane trapped in/under permafrost. As the planet warms, that ice melts, it releases enormous amounts of methane, and this makes the warming even faster, and this releases even more methane. The next few centuries should be interesting.

      You will not need to wait a few centuries for things to get 'interesting'; the next 2 or 3 decades will more than suffice. There are several enormous positive feedback elements in play .. methane from multiple sources, loss of reflective ice, wildfire emissions, cooking biomass emissions, reduction of ocean CO2 absorbtion, reduced vegetation cover, increased carbon based energy use by humans, etc.

    • @scottw2317

      they talk of this methane as being much older than the current interglacial which beggars the question 'why hasn't this supposed methane escaped before now?'. The artic was ice free according to proxy data for thousands of years peaking about 6000 years ago. Tree stumps and human settlement ruins indicate much warmer climate further north during this period so why now when temperatures are cooler are you worried about permafrost methane escaping?

      Yep. Most scientific organizations are largely government funded, or they receive a portion of their funding from the government. So the agenda becomes less about working to understand reality, and more about working to secure more funding. And notice anytime something happens that doesn't fit or threatens the political narrative, research groups jump into action to force it to fit the narrative.

      Thank you for all the information clearly presented. I have long been interested in the factors that contribute to climate and how it changes over time on earth. It's a very complicated subject with many many variables affecting climate and I don't think people realise this. Having said this... The impact we humans have had on climate have been dramatic causing severe warming and poor environmental practices, land and sea pollution etc. So we are seeing results in the increase in global weather changes and disasters. But it's not all the story.. Planet earth has its own cycles in nature. We are affected by events related to our planet's place in solar system, by way chemicals and systems on earth work. We need to keep open minds, keep learning and developing understanding, keep working to reduce our negative impacts, keep sharing knowledge. Thank you for your presentation

There is no need of permafrost melting mention to explain the methane gas, since Russia keeps releasing such gas into the air and into the sea while is isolated by the embargo and manages to sell some of the petrol but not as much the gas present with the petrol.

    I've personally felt as though winter has been taking longer to arrive, but staying for the same amount of time once it does. I remember back in the mid 90s that we would reliably get the first snow in late mid October, and we would get the first real storm in late November or early December. I also remember that in 1995, we got a blizzard in April that was considered unheard of. Now almost 30 years later we often don't get our first snow until January, but now it's not uncommon to have snow in may.
    Summer has also felt shifted. I remember as a kid June and July were swelteringly hot, whereas August and September had a break in the temperatures. Now June and July are temperate, August and September feel like an oven, and there isn't a break in the temperatures sometimes until early December. Just what I've personally observed, with all the pitfalls of memory and perception.

Then, when Europe finally gets into the Arctic Circle, it will begin again. Antarctica has occupied the south pole region for about 300 million years, and it and its ocean currents are a major player in the onset of global glaciation events (as is Northern Canada).

And I can just about guarantee, based on past cycles, that the Earth will once again enter into a period of glaciation that covers the majority of the Northern Hemisphere, and that is made possible, in part, because of plate tectonics and the movement of continental land masses over the past half billion years.

How many decades would it take before the Canadian ice sheets made their way south of the 47th parallel (hint: less than 10).

Our current climate change is exponential, not linear, not gradual, not naturally caused and not just another blip in a long geological record of climate variations. As much as science can know something, climate urgency is established. The foreseeable consequences are dire. Unfortunately, this video looked forward instead of only backward, possibly inducing complacency in its viewers when it’s urgency that’s warranted.
      The video observes the rapid increase in CO2 and observes the spike since just 2006 in methane release. Then, strangely, the video pivots to reassure us that the Earth has an ability to engage negative feedback loops to respond to climate change and establish a new equilibrium. That glosses over the initial dramatic loss of habitability for life forms that exist today as we sleep our way into a climate catastrophe and then wait for a millennia-long correction.
      The video skips over the damage the initial positive feedback loop will cause.

Humanity will have to adapt rather than attempting to act like King Canute and hold back the tide.

      - Interglacials are caused by LOW CO2.
      Low CO2 causes plant-death and CO2 deserts.
      This causes dust.
      Dust on ice sheets causes warming.
      Thus low CO2 causes interglacial warming.
      Every interglacial is preceded by 10,000 years of dust.
      Interglacials are NOT caused by increasing CO2.
      The feedback is ice sheet aIbedo.

      Solar forcing is important, but on time scales relevant to human history solar irradiance is practically constant. Even near solar minimum, when galactic comic rays have easier access to Earth, and during the solar maximum, their spectrum remains relatively constant in energy and composition, varying only slowly with time. Just as the solar cycle follows a roughly elven year cycle, so does galactic cosmic rays with its maximum.
      No mechanism has been discovered for variations in the solar wind or magnetic field to affect Earth's climate significantly. It's a red herring when folk claim these forcing do; popular on "climate skeptic" pseudoscience blogs, but we know once a talking point gains inertia in the "skeptic" echo chamber, it never dies. The steady decline in energy output, the 11 year cycle in sunspots, and the variations in the solar wind shows no correlation with climate on annual, decadal, nor century scales.

    Milankovitch cycles describe the collective effects of changes in the Earth's movements on its climate over thousands of years. The term was coined and named after the Serbian geophysicist and astronomer Milutin Milanković. In the 1920s, he hypothesized that variations in eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession combined to result in cyclical variations in the intra-annual and latitudinal distribution of solar radiation at the Earth's surface, and that this orbital forcing strongly influenced the Earth's climatic patterns.

      The Earth's atmosphere consists of around 420 PPM CO2 which is 0.042% CO2.

      At 150 PPM CO2, all plant life begins to die out due to photosynthesis stopping.
      The average temperature on Earth is now 15 degrees Celsius (59 °F).

    Well for example Estonia is 23% wetlands. During the past 50 years, there has been enormous growth of digging trenches to dry out wetlands for pine wood monoculture production. Also peat mining has played a key part. As the wetlands dry out, the organic matter stored there starts to continue to decompose, releasing methane into the atmosphere. I don't know about much rest of the data, but I'd guess its important to point out that some of the natural cycles are triggered by human activities. Great video though, an interesting new perspective for me.

    Ben, great video, thanks. FYI the word 'glaciation' refers to snow and ice retention at either of the poles or both of them, The present glaciation started about 45 Mya with snow and ice accumulation on Antarctica and starting the Tertiary Glaciation. The ongoing decline of sea levels led to the Arctic becoming glaciated simce 2.58 Mya. The cause of the Tertiary glaciation is the galactic orbit of the solar system making it move upward from the galactic plane and causing the orbital inclinations of the planets to decline, vis-a-vis the obliquity of the Earth's spin axis. CO2 is like phlogiston; it actually does the opposite of what it is claimed to do. by bonding inversely proportional to temperature with H2O as carbonic acid and making that precipitate. Without the lighter than air H2O molecules suspending the heavier than air CO2 molecules they would form a toxic high pressure surface layer as it does on Venus , taken care of on Earth by forming the ocean covering 71% of the global surface to depths of around 8 km.

Nature's doing something. but we are on target (actually a little late) for an event that last happened 125,000 years ago, the Eemian. Before that were the La Bouchet, Purfleet and Hoxnian maximums. They're usually about 100,000 years apart and they're super-fast warming periods. What's scary is they peak and then the temperatures drop through the floor (as in -6 to -8 across the planet). So make the most of it because billions more will die of cold than of heat. We need to find energy sources that will work in a full on ice age (which means not wind or solar or even wave because the oceans will be iced over).

No one really knew why but scientists had all kids of speculations from global warming, to chemicals in the water. We didn't do shit but the coral reefs have began to regenerate by themselves and science found out that sometimes, on really rare occasions, coral reefs get ill and die of to 80-90% of what they were just for the surviving 10-20% to regenerate.

    Thank you for a well produced and highly informative presentation. Isn't it true that there are two more major factors which contribute even more to release of methane?
    Solar cycles of increased and highly variable radiation levels in which we are currently reaching an 11 year maxima (remember also that our earth is miniscule in comparison to our Sun).
    Secondly there have been many academic papers exhibiting significant evidence that approx every 12,000 years , a Geo Magnetic Excursion event (GME) takes place on earth (a pole shift). The reduction in earths magnetic field due to the GME also greatly reduces our protection from our Suns increasing radiation. These two factors may sugnificantly disrupt our Earths albido, perhaps with even greater effect than methane alone.
    Would these be interesting subjects to consider in one of your videos?
    Keep up the great work.

      I - as a physicist would expect the 11 year solar cycle (which goes along with a net increased energy flow when there is more solar activity) is not playing any big role in general climate (as in long term trend) but rather in cylclic weather phenomena. Simply put: 11 years cylce is most likely too short compared to the long term changes we are observing to effectively drive / support those processes.
      You can understand this as with a pendulum having a resonance frequency. If you are at the resonance frequency, you pump a lot of energy into the pendulum and always increase it's motion. If you are far off resonance there is not much energy gain. It's like with a swing, you always push your child on the swing when the swing arrives where you are and thus match the frequency and effectively get it higher and higher. If you'd just push it randomly (either just once at the start - much lower frequency - or erratically all the time even when the swing comes your way, you will get a much worse experience).

Also, with the warming oceans there is the Clathrate Gun Hypothesis. Even if we stop all emissions right now there is a couple of degrees c of increase already baked in. With 38c events in Siberia the tundra is definitely melting. Areas of the Canadian arctic are falling into the water as the permafrost melts.

      Theoretically, there is only a finite amount of methane under the frozen tundra, yet to be released. Lets say that all of the tundra melts and all the methane gets out. In that scenario all the methane released will break down within 10 years, as mentioned in the video. So the impact of tundra methane may be large but only very briefly, meaning in terms of the equation of the contents of our overall atmospheric system, that methane is not important. It will be released and then break down. What's far more important however, is finding the sources of methane that keep pumping into the atmosphere for years on end. So abandoned natural gas and oil wells, for example, will be pumping methane for years and years to come. These are the sources to focus on. Another reason to put focus there is that it's a source we can stop. We can't stop the tundra from melting, it's too late for that, but we can cap off an abandoned oil well.

    Something to consider when looking at all this data, is the fact that the glaciers disappearing 11,800 years ago might not have been part of a natural cycle. It is becoming increasingly evident through scientific research that 1, possibly 2 major impact events happened within 2000 years of each other, prematurely melting the ice sheets and raising sea levels. If that is the case, then it might be that the current rise in Methane levels is part of the natural cycle taking place (termination event), except that the ice sheets are already primarily melted. Interesting and very dynamic indeed. Thank you for the video.

    Milankovitch cycles have always existed in our solar system (since the planetary orbits settled down). Yet the current ice age only started about 2.3MYA+. I suspect Milankovitch cycles contribute to the fine layer of geologic strata. So what happened then? the Isthmus of Panama closed (debated). Prior to this closing, the warm equatorial current would have flowed from Africa into the Gulf (strait) of Mexico, then out into the Pacific. After closing, it goes back out the strait of Florida into the north Atlantic. This warm water substantially increased evaporation and snowfall at the high latitudes? allowing snow cover to persist, then supported by certain periods of the Milankovitch cycles, started periodic glacial maximums?
    Antarctica was warm until about 16MYA. Then Antartica separated from South America, allowing a circumpolar ocean current to form. Prior to that, warm ocean currents would have flowed south to the continent?

      Mainly the Arctic ocean and melting arctic tundra - there is a lot of methane that can be released up there. Note that "runaway global warming" wouldn't runaway forever as the spectral graph of the earth shifts slowly toward higher energy wavelengths that go around the absorption bands of GHGs. But certainly it can runaway from our ability to stop it if we don't like what is happening. This is essentially what a tipping point is - we get to a point and we will get 3 or 4 (or more) degrees of warming no matter what we do to emissions after that point - the warming is locked in out of our control. e.g. We can't control the methane coming out of the Arctic tundra or Arctic ocean. This is why reducing emissions drastically before the tipping points is so important.

    Ben, despite extensive research I'm surprised you make no point of 2006-2007 onward seeing the rapid acceleration of unconventional oil & gas extraction i.e. the fracking of shale deposits (particularly in the USA). Such wells were being drilled in their hundreds - thousands soon thereafter. The main prize was natural gas. Meanwhile its extraction, venting, flaring, containment leaks and fugitive emissions were a serious problem (largely denied by the industries involved). The possibilities of this previously untapped resource was explored in the late 90's (around 1997) but commercial exploitation didn't really take off till 2006/7, especially after the 'Halliburton Loophole' of 2005 enabled it, in law, to get around the related environmental hazards. Rapid decline-rates, particularly from shale wells, meant they were abandoned after a few years - ostensibly sealed, made safe, or sold off for 'long-tale' investors gleaning diminishing returns from ever-lower yields. In the US alone there are now about 4 million abandoned O&G wells, many still leaking gas.
