The Arctic-News Blog describes the situation in the Arctic, highlighting the threat of albedo changes and large emissions of greenhouse gases due to decline of snow and ice and abrupt methane eruptions from the Arctic Ocean seafloor. Contributors to the blog all share a deep concern about the way climate change is unfolding in the Arctic and the threat that this poses for the world at large.

Posts cover topics such as sea ice, permafrost and methane clathrates, and will typically address recent developments on such topics. Posts are typically left as they are, in order to provide an archive on such developments. To find posts on a topic, a list of labels (or keywords) is added in the panel on the right hand side.

In addition to posts, the Arctic-News Blog contains pages that provide general background on topics. These pages are updated from time to time to reflect new developments. A list of pages is included in the panel in the right hand side. Further blogs, pages at facebook and groups at facebook are mentioned below. Note that only posts at this blog will show up when doing a label search.

Further blogs and facebook pages and groups set up and moderated or edited by Sam Carana
