Power of the Planet: Atmosphere

I wanted to post about this last week but couldn't find a clip, but I have one now so here goes.

BBC has a new program at the moment called Power of the Planet where the very likable Dr Iain Stewart looks at how the Earth works. Last weeks program was about the Atmosphere and the looming dangers of climate change, this clip is of him in Siberia lighting methane being released from the permafrost and, seeing as methane is many times more effective than carbon dioxide as a green house gas, it scared the shit out of me.
