#1 Dinosaurs passing wind may have caused climate change05-07-2012, 09:15 AM
Like huge cows, the mighty sauropods would have generated enormous quantities of methane.
Sauropods, recognisable by their long necks and tails, were widespread around 150 million years ago.
They included some of the largest animals to walk the Earth, such as Diplodocus, which measured 150 feet and weighed up to 45 tonnes.
Scientists believe that, just as in cows, methane-producing bacteria aided the digestion of sauropods by fermenting their plant food.
''A simple mathematical model suggests that the microbes living in sauropod dinosaurs may have produced enough methane to have an important effect on the Mesozoic climate,'' said study leader Dr Dave Wilkinson, from Liverpool John Moores University....

They need to end Dr Dave Wilkinson job as a scientist and get him more suitable work like a dishwasher or busboy.How is obama working out for you?

Conjecture double-down... Nice!Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

There's no doubt in my mind that's what happened.
Empirical evidence provided by "The Dutch Oven" is enough to convince me that temperatures rise after the expulsion of methane.Be Not Afraid.

These people are getting paid to come up with this shit?"Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress.

The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
