Weather is on everyone’s mind just now isn’t it? Especially if they are sitting somewhere with no power. We were doing that for a while, just lying in the dark with nothing to do but think and we got thinking about the story we linked to in our last post, you know the one where rice paddies 5,000 years ago started the rise in CO2, that nasty emission which is to blame- we are told- for global warming. And we got thinking about dinosaurs. They were big beasts and there were lots of them around it seems. Wouldn’t they put out a hell of a lot of methane [which is worse we are told than CO2, emissions wise!] just as much as cattle or a few rice paddies? So be prepared for a study which will push the greenhouse gas emissions theory of climate-change back to the Triassic and Jurassic!
Meanwhile although the evidence increasingly contradicts the modellers’ theories, the scary stories continue. The arctic ice is melting. That’s a favorite grim fairy tale to scare your kids with. Here is a sad effort from a Greenpeacenik:
This actually makes us angry. Hucksters are hucksters whether they work for Ringling Brothers, Yorkton securities or Greenpeace. So hug your kids tonight and tell them Santa will find that chimney just fine.
