In addition to livestock contributing to the release of methane, let's not forget that fake climate change resulting in the melting of glaciers, permafrost* and icecaps is also releasing ancient methane (and God knows what else) into the atmosphere.

*there's some scary ancient viruses that are seeing the light of day with the melting of the permafrost, some hat haven't been seen in thousands of years.

They have hats?

But since the ice caps are growing now, they're swallowing up all that methane now, right? Along with the cow farts?

Not to worry, I've invented a device that captures carbon dioxide in the air and fixes it in usable, biodegradable form. I call it "plants."

LOLWUT?

The A,B and C Larsen Ice Shelves have been there for over 100,000 years have all FALLEN THE fark OFF the polar ice cap. That ain't normal by any stretch of the imagination. Hell, the C shelf is the size of goddamned Delaware, FFS (I don't have time to explain the impact of how the meltwater from it affects ocean temperature and salinity. Look it up).

And in case you missed it, there's a whole lotta ancient viruses*  and god knows what else being exposed by the melting of the goddamned permafrost, which has also been around a very long time. That scares the shiat out of me, because that's how you get a goddamned Zombie Apocalypse...or at the very least, a naive viral pandemic.

*and GODDAMNIT the plural of virus isn't viri (or virii), which is Latin for "men" (vir is the root of our word "virile"). The plural of virus (which, BTW, is the plural form anyway) is VIRUSES. Anyone who uses viri as the plural of virus is a pretentious douchebag guilty of Latin Abuse.


Not unusual at all. Ice shelves collapse all the time. They also grow back. Cracks form in one place and ice grows somewhere else.

The world has been growing warmer since the Little Ice Age and should get cooler again in a few years, as a new sunspot minimum is set to begin around 2030. There should be plenty of ice-shelf regrowth then.

In Antarctica specifically, there's been no warming in the past 30 years, and more recently the winter ice pack has reached record-setting levels (trapping in ice one boatload of climate-botherers, aboard the USS No Sense of Irony). The Larsen B glacial area is close to six active volcanoes, a far more likely explanation for this localized breakup than magical pixie dust.

Don't take my word for it -- ask the climate alarmists themselves. Even the IPCC is admitting (though it suppressed the information until after the climate conference) that the models are "running too hot" -- i.e. flat wrong.

At another time I may explain the purpose of this hoax but I think the above is enough truthification for now.

Finally, I take your point about the plural of virus. I've always wondered why the plurals of hippopotamus and rhinoceros aren't hippopotamoi and rhinocerontes.

maxheck: You're quite right.... except for the whole being factually wrong part. But hey, it sounds truthy if you repeat it enough.


THIS.  I guess all those satellite photos taken over the last few decades showing that the northern ice caps have been steadily shrinking are just a hoax, like the moon landing.

First, they came for the plastic six pack rings and I did not speak because I drank from bottles. Then they came for the gasoline and I did not speak because I did not have an SUV. Then they came for the coal and I did not speak because I was not a miner. Then they came for my medium-rare T-bone and there was no one left to speak for me.

Look, the details don't matter.  What matters is that climate scientists were not 100% accurate about something, therefore all science and scientific knowledge no more valid than whatever some guy working for "Raping the Earth For Jesus Inc." tells me.

Smackledorfer: 69gnarkill69: Gyrfalcon:

Yes.

And you were still wrong.

Also, there were a maximum total of 30 million bison. There were not 30 million bison at one time.

LOL!  A simple Google search says you lack reading comprehension at best.  Google rocks.

And yet it doesn't matter, per my earlier post. If we plugged all volcanoes and the did something stupid that matched them (not that volcanoes are a big contributor mind you, that's right wing nonsense) we would still want to stop doing that something stupid.


My point wasn't with your post but since you made it that way, my concern is the big hot ball of gas in the sky.  There is your climate change driver. But I'm not here to argue, I just couldn't let Gyrfalcon get away with a comment that is blatantly wrong.  I leave you to your previously interrupted discussion.  Peace out.

Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana converts the methane from the animal waste to CNG to fuel their tanker trucks. They have 42 power units that run an average of 500 mi. per day each. That's a lot of cow farts.

We've known for a while that a meat based diet contributes to greenhouse gasses more than transportation or industry.  And it's dumb that we keep ignoring the real problems.  Go meatless 3 days a week before your next spittle flying rant about someone else who should be solving the problem for you.

I wonder how the cow population in the USA compares to the former bison population. I'm guessing that they are much the same.

Yet another case of hyper-alarmist rants, journalistic fear mongering. But of course, I didn't click the link. I'll come back and correct myself if I am wrong about this.
