Global warming has been predicted by the IPCC to release long-sequestered carbon in Earth's peatlands to the atmosphere, possiblyfreeing enough of it at a sufficiently rapid rate to rival CO
emissionsfrom anthropogenic sources, with the end result of this scenariobeing a strong positive feedback to the ongoing rise in the air's CO
content, which the IPCC contends will lead to further warming of theplanet. But is this contention correct?

Dr Kerry Emanuel of MIT caused a storm recently, when he said in aMother Jones video that, as a Republican scientist, he is almostashamed to be an American, because not all Republican candidateshave embraced Global Warming. An LA Times Op-Ed from January5th 2012, portrayed him as the conservative scientist out to save theworld.
In February last year, Dr Emanuel was playing the same “Repu
scientist who believes in global warming” message in a radio interview for NPR. He brought in the usual
mantras about the tobacco industry and a campaign of disinformation funded by vested interests, butfailed to mention his own vested interest in the disaster insurance business.
