The global warming movement has had some rough months recently. Once an attractive front for the neo-Marxists to take control of the world’s economies – their ultimate objective – it has become mired in falsified research, fabricated findings and, well...this:
Professor Graeme Ruxton of St Andrews University, Scotland, said the giant animals spent 150 [million] years emitting the potent global warming gas, methane.
Large plant-eating sauropods would have been the main culprits because of the huge amounts of greenery they consumed.
The team calculated the animals would have collectively produced more than 520m tons of methane a year – more than all today’s modern sources put together.
It is thought these huge amounts could easily have been enough to warm the planet.
You got that, right? Dinosaur flatulence caused global warming. I can’t believe we never thought of that before! I can’t believe this brilliant deduction wasn’t part of Al Gore’s slide show! It would at least have been a bit more entertaining of a presentation.
And let’s be honest – we’ve heard of humans dying after having a night of “flatulence release” in an airtight bedroom. Perhaps this dino-gas is what killed off the beasts?
One of the animals, a 90-ton argentinosaurus, which measured 140ft in length, would have consumed at least half a ton of food in one day.
After breaking down in the animal’s stomach it would have produced thousands of [liters] of the greenhouse gas compared with a modern cow which only produces 200 [liters] of methane daily.
‘In fact, our calculations suggest these dinosaurs may have produced more methane than all the modern sources, natural and human, put together,’ said [Ruxton's co-researcher David] Wilkinson to the Sunday Times.

Is it that hard to believe that they suffocated themselves with their gas? Seems scientific to me. And who knows how many other creatures died as a result of the toxic dino-gas as well. Shoot, there were probably polar bears leaping off of ice drifts into the water to escape the smell.
Of course, the other side of all of this is somewhat difficult for the Warmers. If the earth survived the “global warming” caused by far more methane expulsion than what we piddly humans have been able to produce – and not only survived, but actually produced a tremendously livable and healthy environment – why is there all the panic over a new era of “warming?” And does it not also indicate that the warming is bound to happen regardless of what we do or don’t do, and that the earth is created capable of adjusting to our (or dinosaur’s) behavior?
You know, sorta like it was made and designed with resilience...for our benefit. But anyway, I think this whole dinosaur flatulence angle is one the Warmers really need to play up. It does much for the credibility.
