    Some religious folk think that dinosaurs were on the ark, but other secular Leftists cling to the religion of global warming and think that dinosaurs may have farted themselves into extinction. In fact, scientists calculate that dinosaurs emitted far more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than man is doing currently.

    Are you one of those?

    You really are the brainless friggin’ idiot Suzianne says you are.

    What “scientists”?

    The article you referenced, (“referenced” that’s a joke in itself), is written by a guy from an online media network who is using it to get gormless people like you to proliferate it.

    Furthermore, it was written 7 years ago, so what were you Googling “asswind ideas” or something?

    Geeeez, does integrity mean anything to you? You have no qualms telling any lie that is handy to foster your BS political agenda.

    It was an asteroid, fool. Evidence of which remains today, 65 million years later, in the crater at Chicxulub in the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico.

    No, it "depends" on the evidence.

    If farts were involved the evidence would stronger down wind. 🙂

    Here is an article from the Smithsonian on it.

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/media-blows-hot-air-about-dinosaur-flatulence-84170975/

    It is an odd read, to say the least. On the one hand, they say that dinosaurs are conjectured to put out as much carbon emissions as man does today, but on the other hand, the notion that they farted themselves into extinction is overreach?

    I don't get it.

    Obviously the farted so much they deflected the Chicuilub asteroid which otherwise would have missed Earth and hit Mars instead......

    Then get this, from the Smithsonian article you cited:

    "Fox News led off with “Dinosaurs may have farted themselves to extinction, according to a new study from British scientists.” Wrong right out of the gate. Wilkinson and co-authors didn’t say a thing about dinosaur extinction in their paper. Not to mention that the idea doesn’t make any sense. Titanic sauropods were around for about 130 million years. If their gases were so deadly, why did it take so long for the world to be overwhelmed? The Fox News gloss isn’t even a misrepresentation of what the researcher said. The story’s headline and lead are outright fabrications. And the same fiction was repeated on the network’s late-night roundtable of chattering commentators, Red Eye.

    "Gawker simply recycled Fox’s bad air. “A new study from British scientists published in Current Biology suggests the dinosaur infraorder known as sauropods may have actively contributed to its own extinction through excessive flatulence,” wrote site contributor Neetzan Zimmerman, who linked backed to the Fox News item. News aggregation and snarky commentary are popular right now, and in cases like this, lazy and sensationalist reporting can rapidly be echoed across the web. Although I’m not going to give the typically awful Daily Mail credit for independently misconstruing the paper’s results.

    "The Daily Beast’s Daniel Stone and PZ Myers of Pharyngula tore into the media coverage earlier this week. There’s sadly no shortage of facepalm-inducing reporting, but it’s even worse when news sources are so enamored with a punchline that they simply make up conclusions. Not that I expect Fox News, the Daily Mail, or Gawker to stop blowing hot air whenever the opportunity arises."



    They're saying the media outlets outright lied.

    And you lied for repeating it.

    From the same article.

    "Wilkinson and colleagues found that the giant, long-necked dinosaurs would have produced 520 million metric tons of methane annually. In their estimation, this is comparable to the amount of methane that we’re currently pumping into the atmosphere each year. The researchers conclude that so much dinosaur flatulence—in addition to greenhouse gases from fires and other sources—might have created and sustained the relatively warm world of the dinosaurs."

    So if they pumped as much CO2 into the atmosphere, then why did they not kill themselves off?

    Naturally, saying that they farted themselves into extinction would bring ridicule, for obvious reasons, so they simply refuse to make the obvious logical connection.

    The high priestess of the global warming alarmists, AOC, says that we have 12 years left to stop global warming, or the world will end.

    Just out of curiosity, who here believes this?

    As with all religions, there is a God and a devil. So who is the god/goddess? Socialism. Who is the devil? The free market and capitalism.

    Did you somehow miss the point I made about those media outlets lying?

    Most people know when to cut their losses, whodey.
