I'm confused about Global Warming.

Now I was reading another publication that says cows contribute more to global warming/global cooling/climate change or whatever it is this decade significantly more than our cars, buses, planes and everything else we do. Read here. I know it's old but this thought just popped into my head while reading a cowboy book by JT Edson. I know, I know, but I like them. Bad guys do bad, good guys sort it out and kill or jail bad guys. Everyone happy except the bad guys which is how we like it. Unless you are a whingy whiney PC guy anyway.

Anyway, the theory is that our industrial expansion is causing this latest thing. Now the book reminded me that before the white man got to the Americas there were herds of buffalo so big they covered hundreds of acres and each herd comprised hundreds of thousands sometimes millions of animals. Now there was no whingy whiney do good parasitesenvironmental scientists monitoring the waste output but it must have been immense. And we stopped it. Do we get credit? No, we don't. So bearing in mind that we took a while to build up to our current level of CO2 output we must have amassed some serious carbon credits there. Bear with me. If we have to apologise for slavery which we personally didn't do we should get some credits from the same sort of convoluted theory of other things we didn't do.

Now my question is. Why didn't the world records for this period show a decline in output around the time we wiped the herds out? After all we were not producing that much at the time and they claim our cars show a increase, despite the fact that each cow seems to correspond to 100 cars or something, so how come millions of buffalo don't show but our cows do? Just confuses me.

It's almost as if, No it can't be, Could it? Surely we haven't got vegetarians joining in with the global whatever bandwagon? Taking disjointed facts and exaggerating or misinterpreting them?

Well I have news for them. I know some vegetablesvegetarians and I can assure them that removing cows only moves the methane production up the food chain.

Maybe that is why they forced the smoking ban. Can you imagine everywhere full of vegetarians. Enclosed places. One careless strike of a match.

Puts the terrorists into their place and shows why the priority is on smoking and not terrorism. long term plans by our PC led elite. Millions would die trapped in enclosed places. Hoping, praying that someone had a lighter to end it all.

Just thinking out loud. Makes a kind of sense really.

The fact about cows is actually true.
Cows are one of those species whose existence has proliferated since domestication.
Basically, too many cow pats.

The fact that cows deliver greenhouse gas is true, what those gases do to the environment is the 'question'. :)

In the Americas, we wiped out one herd animal and replaced it with another in fairly short order. Besides, around the time the herds went, industrial output of other gases was in high gear.
