An area in Siberia spanning a million square kilometers, or to put it in perspective, the combined size of France and Germany is beginning to thaw and melt (via Raw Story) because of global warming. If that did not put it in perspective, here's another fact : This area would fit in it 11,111,111,111 apartments of a size I live in currently. That's 11 billion, bitches.
Oh, and here's the fun part : "Scientists fear that as it thaws, it will release billions of tonnes of methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere."
Aww isn't that special? It is basically going to be ....what's the word I'm looking for, oh yeah, .... a vicious cycle. It's like what happens when you've had too much to drink, so you puke your bloody guts out, then you look around at all the puke and you think goddamn all this puke is making me vomit, so then you puke some more, and the more you puke the more you feel like puking some more until you are sitting in an ocean of your indigestibles and then finally your spine breaks from bending over the fucking toilet bowl for too long, you hit your head on the rim and die of a concussion.
So that's what's gonna happen. Unless someone wakes up and does something now, we are all going to be sitting motionless with our heads in the toilet bowl, sweating like pigs because the AC's broken and the AC repairman is dead too.
Meanwhile, George W Bush will continue to cut brush on his fake cowboy ranch and pretend not to hear all the scientists rant and yell at him. "What's that", he will say, "I can't hear you over the sound of my AC".
