Video series on methane release from thawing permafrost, with MIT alum Carolyn Ruppel

The climate risk posed by massive methane releases from thawing permafrost has garnered lots of attention recently. To go beyond the headlines, watch this science-grounded 6-part video interview with Carolyn Ruppel, PhD, who heads the the United States Geological Survey (USGS) gas hydrates research project. Carolyn is an MIT PhD alum and current Civil and Environmental Engineering research affiliate -- read one student's account of working with her on methane hydrates research. Important details and nuances in these videos, and I appreciate the easily-absorbed short-segment format.  Thanks Yale Climate Connections for the videos!
