Some deniers have a problem with this: As global warming extends its balmy fingers further into the Arctic regions, defrosting permafrost could release up to 44 billion tons of nitrogen and 850 tons of carbon into the atmosphere, according to a new study from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

They don't understand that "could" refers to the numbers that were estimated. My translation for such deniers:

As global warming extends its balmy fingers further into the Arctic regions, defrosting permafrost continues releasing billions of tons of nitrogen and tons of carbon into the atmosphere. The estimates according to a new study from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) are up to 44 billion tons of nitrogen and 850 tons of carbon release into the atmosphere.

You're welcome.

There isn't much of a battle, since toxic topix AGW deniers have little science & mathematics background because they are too stupid to have science & mathematics degrees.

We also know that toxic topix AGW deniers are often racist pigs, threateners & call others liars.
