Global Warming Insanity For Dec 21 2014

OK, folks, he’s BACK, with today’s “Lesson In Lunacy”. Over the past few months, I have posted several times about global warming being blamed for everything from low birth weights, to a less fertile population, to toasters being Public Enemy Of The Climate Number One.

Well, move over, there is a NEW sheriff in town. Most of you have seen these creatures in various locales, some of you may even hunt, and eat them. Do a LOT more of THAT. You’ll “save the planet”, according to this lunacy. Story from Donna Rachel Edmunds at Breitbart.com

 

Claim: Squirrels Cause Climate Change

The lowly Red Squirrel. A cousin to the DREADED, GLOBAL WARMING CAUSING Arctic squirrel. The ONLY ones who are nuts are NOT this little guy, but the loons doing the study at TAXPAYER expense.

HERE is THE cause of ANY global warming, of which there has been NONE for 18 YEARS. Has ANY “scientist” figured THIS out yet ? Beam me up, Scotty, there is no intelligent life here.

They may look cute and harmless, but squirrels and beavers are contributing to climate change far more than previously thought, climate scientists have claimed. However, their discovery doesn’t let us humans off the hook, as the scientists still insist that carbon dioxide emissions are causing arctic permafrost to melt, compounding the squirrels’ efforts, the Daily Mail has reported.

According to researchers working on the Polaris Project in the Arctic, which aims to study climate change at the poles, arctic ground squirrels and beavers both contribute to carbon emissions by burrowing into the frozen soil to make their homes, churning up the soil. Faeces and urine from the rodents fertilises the soil, encouraging decomposition of biological material that had been locked in suspended animation by the frost, releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Nigel Golden, an ecologist at the University of Wisconsin who took part in the project told the BBC that the ground temperature around the rodents’ burrows was higher than in the surrounding area. “’They are soil engineers,” he said. “They break down the soil when they are digging their burrows, they mix the top layer with the bottom layer, they are bringing oxygen to the soil and they are fertilizing the soil with their urine and their faeces.

“We saw an increase in soil temperature in the soils where the arctic ground squirrels were occupying. This is a major component. As that permafrost begins to warm, now microbes can have access to these previously frozen carbons that were in the soil. And because they mix the soil layers, they are being exposed to warmer temperatures.”

The arctic permafrost is estimated to hold twice as much carbon as is currently present in the Earth’s atmosphere. Climate scientists are therefore concerned that, if the frost melts, the carbon could be released, contributing to climate change. However, they concede that the squirrels are not able to melt the permafrost on their own. There is still a role for man in this climate catastrophe story.

“This is a larger story about wildlife impacts on carbon cycling, and how this may change as the climate warms,” said Dr Sue Natali, who led the Polaris Project.

“Human activities are the primary influence on climate. We do, however, need to understand how these activities are impacting natural ecosystems, and how these ecosystem responses will amplify or attenuate these human-driven impacts.

“Even though we cannot alter wildlife activity, it’s important that we include greenhouse gas emissions from these activities into our accounting of carbon loss from the Arctic.”

The squirrels are not the first animals to have been accused of contributing to climate change. The world’s 1.5 billion cows are thought to contribute as much as 14 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions by releasing methane into the atmosphere. PETA claims that “a staggering 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture,” citing a report by the Worldwatch Institute, and the UN has said that raising animals for food is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”

We have seen the “believer” community blame EVERYTHING for global warming from soup to nuts, toasters, electric razors,whale crap, cow farts, you name it, now add squirrels into the mix.

So WHAT will the lunatics from PETA do? N-O-T-H-I-N-G. To destroy the squirrels to save the planet would expose them for the hypocrites they are. Here is a suggestion for you, PETA. INCREASE the supply of Arctic foxes. THEY will take care of the squirrels.

While y’all are at it, ban the SUN as well. THAT is THE major cause of ANY warming. Even though there has been ZERO warming for 18 goddamn YEARS. PLEASE, global warming lunatics, TRY to keep up in the New Year, OK ?  Morons.

CLYDE. Any bets on WHAT the loons will blame next ?

    If the squirrel and beaver piss and crap in the soil is a problem, I suggest putting a Port-A-Potty next to every tree and burrow. Problem solved. Mankind is saved !

    I thought it was imposable to surpass Big AL, but this is Even nutter than Big AL Gore

    TT

      Yeah it’s even nuttier than bovine flatulence contributing to GW.
      Boy. I bet it was hotter’n hades when 8 or 10 million buffalo wandered around the plains. Eatin’ and fartin’……

      • Clyde says:

        That’s right, Buck. Must be why the last Ice Age ended. All that buffalo shit, and flatulence. I think the problem is human caused alright. By all the HOT AIR, or, if you prefer, humanoid mouth flatulence from the ecoloon left.

    • Clyde says:

      No question, Skip. Thanks.

  3. captbogus2 says:

    Okay. Now wait. Let me get this straight.
    According to the global warming folks humans are solely responsible for global warming, what with our SUV’s and coal fired power plants and stuff, right?
    So what’s with now blaming squirrels that have been burrowing into the Arctic forever? I suppose our squirrels are more friendly since they nest in trees.
    HEY! Idea! Let’s start a fund to donate trees… lotsa trees to these nuts so they can take ’em and plant ’em up in the Arctic so the Arctic squirrel can live in a high rise like his southern neighbor.
    Yeah. Give each one of ’em a tree to plant and a can of pepper spray just in case he meets up with one of those disappearing polar bears while planting his tree….

    • Clyde says:

      Great idea, Buck. The “researchers” can plant the trees while they are “studying” the problem. NO pepper spray for them, however. The aerosol in the can contributes to the destruction of ozone, remember ? ha ha

  4. Grouchy says:

    Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to put a diaper on the volcanoes so that the gases from the eruptions will be trapped.

    This is a total face palm / snow job. ONLY idocized cretins can come up with “ideas” like this, even as they go on burning the forests in Indonesia and the Amazon, for farm land~! There is NO understanding of the role of greenery in oxygen production~!

    • Clyde says:

      Diapers on volcanoes ? Sweet Jesus, man, DO NOT give the loons any ideas. Unless, of course, the volcano is “ready to let off a little steam”.

  5. CW says:

    This is your tax dollars, hard at work.

  6. Hardnox says:

    You’re shitting me… SQUIRRELS???????????????????

    Good grief. They have really outdone themselves this time. I hope they keep this shit up. Eventually even the lemmings will realize it’s bullshit.

    My remedy for varmints is 55 grains at 3000 feet per second.
