OSLO (Reuters) - Thawing permafrost can release nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, a contributor to climate change that has been largely overlooked in the Arctic, a study showed on Sunday.

Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas from human activities, dominated by carbon dioxide ahead of methane

It's going to be entertaining in the north pole region.
There seems to be Laughing gas escaping from the ground.

Nitrous oxide is the third major green house gas next to methane and carbon dioxide.
All of them where regulated under the kyoto treaty. To stop the world from heating.

Unfortunatly it is not and never will do any good. As carbon dioxide has shown to be a cause not a catalyst not even mentioning that the amount of carbon we have produced is not really that much at all.

Methane another unfortunate green house gas out of our control. Whole ocean floors contain large amounts of methane hydrate. It simply has to melt and rise to the service. It happens in the past ,present and future and there is nothing we can do about it. Along side huge amount of methane are release by decaying organisms finaly released from there frozen graves. Perma frost is melting.

Ironic is it not that the number three on the list is also spreading without anything we can do, do to the same melting permafrost.

When are we going to learn.
The big companies probably know. They keep polluting the air. Would you do if you knew it was destroying your home.

Any problems are solved with our money but the only problem I see is greed from the rich.
