Humanity's greenhouse gas emissions may be acidifying the oceans at a faster rate than at any time in the last 300 million years.

As Arctic sea ice breaks apart, massive amounts of methane could be released into the atmosphere from the cold waters beneath.

Arctic sea ice is continuing its seemingly interminable decline, and it looks like the loss could be contributing to the recent spate of cold winters over northern Europe and North America. Researchers are still unsure about how important sea-ice loss is to winter weather.
Source of climate-warming gas remains uncertain, but might be microbes By Janet Raloff
The water beneath a snow-covered expanse of ice 1 metre thick hardly seems like a good home for light-loving creatures. But microscopic phytoplankton, which rely on the sun for their nutrients and form the base of Arctic food webs, have managed to thrive under ice sheets that are thinning as the poles become warmer.
Melting Arctic permafrost could put even more methane – a potent greenhouse gas – into the atmosphere than previously thought, with worrying implications for the pace of global warming. Many ice sheets that sit like caps over rock crevices trap natural seeps of methane ; when they melt, the gas can quickly be released into the atmosphere in "burps".
