How Much Will Methane From Melting Permafrost Speed Up Global Warming?

How concerned should we be about the seepage of methane, an extremely powerful greenhouse gas, from the thawing Arctic permafrost? In this interview for The Real News, I discuss methane seepage with Torsten Sachs, a researcher at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Germany. Torsten has co-authored Anne study which found that methane “seeps” on the tundra may be more problematic than previously thought. My interview of Torsten Sachs can be watched here:
