Over 58 Million liters (15 million gallons) of toxic mercury is buried in the permafrost. And rising temperatures could release it all into the atmosphere. Researchers analyzed soil samples taken from various locations from Alaska. They estimated the total amount of mercury sealed under North America to be roughly 793 gigagrams or more than 58 million liters (15 million gallons).
Climate Change is going to release tons of toxic mercury into the atmosphere.
