i doubt anybody knows what "wake up and smell the permafrost" means. I sure as hell don't - are you denying global warming? Advertising a new type of coffee?

Alright, not meaning to be rude, but what is 'Permafrost'? I looked up 'Permafrost' then googled 'Permafrost Pollution' with little results.

Permafrost is what's keeping a couple of million years worth of organic matter frozen in the tundra. Once it melts, all that ancient plant and animal material is going to start thawing and releasing CO2 and methane into the atmosphere, essentially dooming any chance we've got at reversing the current warming trend.

Sounds frightening. You don't hear anything about the hole in the ozone layer these days, but I'm sure that must be a contributing factor.
