Dino Fatrs caused Global Warming...
America I present to you your best and brightest! The scientists who will lead us proudly into the important 21st century field of dinosaur flatulence. Who needs to go to the moon anymore when we can "study" the gastric habits of long dead creatures to promote a political agenda.
The earth was in danger. The dominant form of life on the planet was polluting the atmosphere more powerfully and incurring global warming more dangerously than any animal that ever walked the earth.
And Al Gore was nowhere to be found. And even if he were, could the Prophet of Global Warming have had the courage to stare down these purveyors of atmospheric filth?
Not likely. ’Cause they were –
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, dinosaurs released more methane gas, which traps more heat than carbon dioxide and is thus more dangerous, than all natural and man-made sources of methane do today.
Dr. Dave Wilkinson, from Liverpool John Moores University, who led a study of the issue, that was published in the journal Current Biology, said:
“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. Indeed, our calculations suggest that these dinosaurs could have produced more methane than all modern sources - both natural and man-made - put together.”
Medium-sized sauropods like diplodocus, which was 150 feet tall and weighed up to 45 tons, made enough methane to amount to roughly 472 million tons per year, the scientists calculated.
That’s more wind than Al Gore does in a whole speech. But not by much.

I bet that it sounds like thunder when something that big farts.
