Melting Arctic

FTE24 Arctic ~ Sam Carana about the Arctic and global temperature

And here comes an exclusive interview with Sam Carana!

In my view he is one of the leading scientists, who is engaged in the topic of abrupt climate change. But nobody knows who is behind this name, he prefers to remain anonymous.

In this episode of the FasterThanExpected podcast we focus on the question: How is ice melting in the Arctic and methane influencing the global temperature?

About the melting ice in the Arctic we had heard from Thorstein Viddal and Peter Wadhams in the first part of my Arctic series. The thickness and volume of the ice is at a record low. With Jennifer Hynes I have talked about the Methane Monster, that is out now.


Sam Carana is the main writer on Arctic News blog, that describes the situation in the Arctic, focusing especially on the threat of large abrupt methane eruptions from the Arctic Ocean seafloor.

Sam Carana gives no audio or video interviews, but he has been so kind to give me a written interview. I am thankful, that Kevin Hester from New Zealand will take his part in this recording.

    “The Climate Plan can be easily implemented” – sorry my bullshit detector beeps.

    Physicists Aharanov and Tollaksen say that the universe has a destiny—and the laws of physics pull us inexorably toward our prewritten fate. So what if we are arriving at the final state of the universe? The end of time.

    Cosmologists have long been puzzled about why the conditions of our universe—for example, its rate of expansion—provide the ideal breeding ground for galaxies, stars, and planets. If you rolled the dice to create a universe, odds are that you would not get one as handily conducive to life as ours is. Even if you could take life for granted, it’s not clear that 14 billion years is enough time for it to evolve by chance.

    But if the final state of the universe is set and is reaching back in time to influence the early universe, it could amplify the chances of life’s emergence.
