We are also seeing increases in methane as it is released from thawing arctic tundra.

Yes, the fear is it could become a significant factor over time. Today it is around 1% of the global emissions of methane, but that will increase as global temperatures increase. Eventually we reach a tipping point where the warming feeds back into a viscous cycle where we have more methane produced from bacterial decomposition of the tundra producing more warming.
