Arctic Thaw Raises Stakes in Global struggle to Cut Carbon - November 28, 2012

The massive release of methane and other gases from the Arctic will make it tougher to meet human greenhouse gas cuts, but the scale of the problem will still be determined by how much fossil fuel is burned by humans over coming decades, scientists say.
