Just when you thought that modern-day ‘science’ could not possibly sully its reputation any more than it already had by clinging to the marred mathematical models of its revered anthropomorphic climate change catechism, along comes another dynamic duo of taxpayer supported prima donnas proclaiming to a climate weary world that dinosaurs farted their way to extinction.
In a major new climate finding, researchers have calculated that dinosaur flatulence could have put enough methane into the atmosphere to warm the planet during the hot, wet Mesozoic era.
Like gigantic, long-necked, prehistoric cows, sauropod dinosaurs roamed widely around the Earth 150 million years ago, scientists reported in the journal Current Biology on Monday.
And just like big cows, their plant digestion was aided by methane-producing microbes.
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,” researcher Dave Wilkinson of Liverpool John Moores University said in a statement.
“Indeed, our calculations suggest that these dinosaurs could have produced more methane than all modern sources, both natural and man-made, put together,” Wilkinson said. Christian Science Monitor
Notice that the reporter for the Christian Science Monitor declared this horse hockey nonsense to be a major new climate finding.
I would hazard to say here that our planet Earth is imperiled by another more sinister form of hot air other than those gaseous outbursts of anal ozone coming from the digestive tracks of wild and/or domesticated livestock.
Sadly, what passes for research today has devolved into a form of pseudo-scientific scholasticism, a sort of modern-day medieval method, the sole purpose of which is to articulate and defend progressive orthodoxy. So if a tenet of the one-and-only faultless faith declares that the sky is falling, the role of the scientific community is to expend its energies in proving just how and when that cloud-crashing event will occur.
So now that the High Priests of Progressivism have proved that breaking wind is warming up the planet, what could be next on the academic true believers’ agenda? Perhaps calculating how many Democrats can dance on the tip of a needle? Stay tuned.
