13Mar2012: Arctic Methane Emergency Group AMEG

Arctic Methane Emergency Group AMEG
http://www.ameg.me/index.php/letter-to-world-leaders

Declaration of Emergency http://www.ameg.me/index.php/about-ameg

All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group
Tuesday, 13th March, 1:00 - 2:30 pm
Committee Room 8,
House of Commons,
London SW1A 0AA

The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.

Please enter by St. Stephen’s Gate, and allow about 15 minutes to pass through security. If you would like to attend this meeting, please contact Neha Sethi at the APPCCG Secretariat on climatechangegroup@carbonneutral.com or tel: +44 (0) 20 7833 6035.

AMEG will set before the APPCCG new evidence that shows that because of rising sea and air temperatures the Arctic is in a state of rapid collapse, with a high probability that the Arctic will be completely ice-free at its summer minimum as early as 2013 and having no sea-ice in the Arctic for six months of the year by 2018-20.

At the same time, thawing and release of previously frozen methane previously trapped under the Arctic sea bed and in the surrounding tundra, is also increasing alarmingly, a process that will accelerate as the Arctic sea responds to the loss of sea-ice protection. Evidence will be presented of what is actually happening in the Arctic, in regard to the reduction of the ice sheet, the rate of methane release and details of the basic driving mechanisms in the form of warming ocean currents and increasing solar absorption in the region.

The meeting will also focus on the possible ways of halting this process and managing the level of the solar radiation currently reaching the Arctic and will explore the challenges inherent in applying the technology in one of the most inhospitable regions on Earth.

Panellists will include:
• Peter Wadhams, Professor of Ocean Physics, Cambridge

* Stephen Salter is an emeritus professor of engineering design at the University of Edinburgh who has been working for years on a proposal to deploy 1,500 robotic ships that would crisscross the oceans, spraying saltwater mist to brighten clouds. He has patented a "Salter Sink" that lists Bill Gates as an inventor, and which Intellectual Ventures is promoting as a means to "reduce the severity and frequency" of hurricanes and typhoons. http://www.zcommunications.org/geoengineering-the-planet-by-arun-gupta
