So if the artic is set to release 100's to 1000's of gigatonnes of methane, and our climate is something we cannot stop the course of... should we focus our resources on mitigating the effects of a new climate? Instead of trying to fight a force we do...

> Ecologist Sergey Zimov has studied the decaying Arctic permafrost for decades, and has a plan to preserve it with millions of herbivores.
> Now, Zimov is straining credibility again with his proposal for containing the threat. He has called for rewilding the Arctic: repopulating vast swaths of the permafrost zone of Eurasia and North America with large herbivores. By restoring the mammoth steppe, he says, those megafauna would help to keep the permafrost intact even as the atmosphere warms.
He looks like a mad scientist, but this post is 5 hours old, and he's been on it since the 80s. He deserves some attention, as well as the AMEG

In no way am I saying "this is the solution. donate here and save the world". but if that thread can help even more than raising awerness, this is a [real](https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/4utat0/russian_climate_scientist_gets_choked_up/d5t3s07) scientific community on the front line, and scientists need funding
