Is there a little something to this “theory”? Well, a little, as methane is certainly a much more potent greenhouse gas than CO2. And the notion that the dinosaurs were killed off by an asteroid has come under some question, some wacky, some legitimate. Most tend to focus on the asteroid as the leading cause. But, leave it up to the insane Warmists to trot this out
(UK Daily Mail) Dinosaurs may be partly to blame for a change in climate because they created so much flatulence, according to leading scientists.
Professor Graeme Ruxton of St Andrews University, Scotland, said the giant animals spent 150 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.
It is even possible that the climate change was so catastrophic that it caused the dinosaurs eventual demise.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the very fact that they use the phrase “climate change” rather than “global warming” immediately negates any sort of scientific notion. Greenhouse gases cause it to get….warm. Not cold.
On the bright side, at least they aren’t pushing the “everyone (else) should go meatless” meme. Yet.
