Question on runaway methane[edit]

It's my understanding that we've been in non-ice ages before. Wouldn't that have resulted in the permafrost disappearing and the methane being released as well? A feedback effect would've happened before, yet Earth didn't turn into Venus then. To me, it's scaremongering when it isn't even needed. "Weather patterns shift and the sea level rises, massive crop failures everywhere, horrible wars as Europe and the US invade Canada and Russia for farmland" is already pretty damn scary.
