New theory on Dinosaur demise

If this is true I'm sure many of you are endangered species and don't even know it.

I'm doing my part to warm the planet for all you who can't stand the cold.

I'm sorry, but while this sort of thing may be chuckle-worthy, it really does nothing to keep right-wing holdouts from pointing and laughing at these so-called "scientists."

Even in life, dinosaurs were bad for the environment

It's cool! Now Fox news admits that Global Climate change is at least possible. They've made a baby step back to logic.

I think it's the opposite. The article is intended to provoke a sarcastic "what a load of hogwash" response... equating this study to that of possibilities of global warming.

Broccoli farts from a 90ton animal making a planet unlivable? I can believe it.

I can clear a house of life and I'm only 235.

It's an interesting discovery and may explain some things that we're seeing now. In fact, it's not a new idea that our love of beef (Mmmm. Beef) is having a very similar effect today. Cows may not be as big as dinosaurs, but there's a lot of cow methane getting churned out and I believe it is generally agreed to be a contributing factor to observable rises in greenhouse gasses.

As for the folks you're talking about, doesn't really make any difference.

(edit) Ah, there you go.

Maybe it was actually redheads farting after eating pie.
