TD Elvis is a conservative worth talking to, a thinking man. The others...

they get so excited to dust off their one-liners that it's sometimes fun to give them that chance. It's like when you buy a child a toy just to keep it from having a meltdown.

The truth about what Booker was trying to say is that the agricultural industry and the aviation industry are major contributors to carbon/methane emissions, and are likely areas that we need to look at. In the long-term the human race is going to have to make some changes, it's just a fact.

"Revised calculations of methane produced per head of cattle show that global livestock emissions in 2011 were 11% higher than estimates based on data from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC).

Periodic reports by the IPCC, drawing from thousands of scientists, help leaders take action on climate change, which has begun to wreak havoc on weather around the world.

“In many regions, livestock numbers are changing, and breeding has resulted in larger animals with higher intakes of food,” said Julie Wolf, a researcher in the US Department of Agriculture and the lead author of a study in the journal Carbon Balance and Management.

“This, along with changes in livestock management, can lead to higher methane emissions,” she said.

Earlier estimates, Wolf added in a statement, were based on “out-of-date data”.

After rising slowly from 2000 to 2006, the concentration of methane in the air has climbed 10 times more quickly in the last decade, according to earlier research.

Besides natural sources such as peatland, wetlands and termites, methane from human activity – approximately two-thirds of the total – is produced in two ways: the odourless and colourless gas leaks during the production and transport of coal, oil and especially natural gas; and, in roughly equal measure, from the flatulence of ruminants such as cattle and sheep, as well as the decay of organic waste, notably in landfills.

Methane accounted for about 16% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2015, according to the IPCC."

Now I know, the science isn't settled, what about China and India yada yada yada. God would never let us down.

So by all means, bury thy head in the sand. But I hope that your descendants are held to account for your ignorance.
