30 million euros for research into climate change feedbacks
30 million euros for research into climate change feedbacks

An example is the extra CO2 emissions from thawing permafrost. Research into the influence of feedback mechanisms in the long term has been ongoing, and modern climate change research is obviously happening as well, but the connection between the two has so far been underemphasized.
