It wasn't an asteroid, or lack of food, it was FARTING that killed off the dinosaurs.

If mankind perishes in a mass extinction, you only have you and your stinky, smelly, gassy butt to blame.

Why is it that every time some crazy pronouncement about the world hits the headlines it comes out of the mouth of some pea-brained idiot Republican politician?

Also, how is it that 86% of Republican members of congress don't believe global climate change is real? Man, big oil, gas and coal must pay REALLY well.

The story -

Rep. (R-CA) Rohrabacher: Global Warming May Have Been Caused By ‘Dinosaur Flatulence’
This week, Congress held its first hearing on the landmark IPCC report on climate change. That report concluded that global warming is “unequivocal” and human activity is the main driver, “very likely” causing
most of the rise in temperatures since 1950.

During the hearing, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) — one of the 87 percent of congressional Republicans who do not believe in man-made global warming — questioned the authors of the report about a period of dramatic climate change that occured 55 million years ago. “We don’t know what those other cycles were caused by in the past. Could be dinosaur flatulence, you know, or who knows?’

Presumably, Rohrabacher was referencing a period known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. Then, as in now, “sharp rises in temperature were initiated and driven by large spikes in greenhouse gases. … It took over 100K years for the ocean, atmosphere, and temperatures to return to their previous state. The result was a mass extinction event that took millions of years to recover from.” But scientists believe that massive methane releases from the ocean floors — not dinosaur farts — were the cause.
So please people, save yourselves, save the earth, save us from the fate of the dinosaurs STOP FARTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
