Blame It On Global Warming!

I have headache... it must be Global Warming. My truck is dirty... it must be Global Warming. It's Monday and I don't want to leave home... can I blame that on Global Warming, too!?!

It sounds funny, but a guy has found 600 things that have been blamed on Global Warming in the media and has links to every single one of them!

I don't care what you believe about Global Warming or Climate Change or whatever it is being called these days... This is a funny read! Click here

Take care,

"Fish catches drop" I went fishing for 6 hours about 7 weeks ago and didn't catch a thing, and it was global warmings fault....this is awful...what can I do to help stop global warming ?

Ryan the craziest thing I have ever read was this......

Manners aside, getting cows to burp less can help reduce global warming. Using modern plant-breeding methods to find new diets for cows that make them belch less is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scientists said on Monday.

The key is developing new varieties of food that are easier for cattle to digest and also provide a proper balance of fiber, protein and sugar, said Michael Abberton, a scientist at the UK-based Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research.

This could open up plant-based solutions as alternatives to reducing stock as farmers look for ways to cut methane emissions amid warming climates, he told a briefing on farming and climate change at London's Science Media Centre.

He noted the average dairy cow belches out about 100 to 200 liters of methane each day, making diet changes a key potential factor in reducing this greenhouse gas. "There is a common misperception about how methane gets into the atmosphere," he said. "It is actually through belching rather than the other end."

Agriculture is responsible for about seven percent of UK greenhouse gas emissions and a large proportion of two of the most potent gases with 37% of methane and 67% of nitrous oxide. Greenhouses gases are widely blamed for causing global warming. Scientists say average temperatures will rise by between two and six degrees Celsius by the end of the century, causing droughts, floods and violent storms.

Abberton said introducing easier-to-digest legumes that tend to reduce methane emissions is an example of an approach scientists are beginning to explore. Legumes such as clover and alfalfa are commonly used for animal fodder.

It also requires farmers to balance cows' legume intake with other food and to develop different species of grass that are also more digestible, he added. "What I'm saying is there are approaches within plant breeding that can lead to reduced emissions," he said.

Ssssssssssh, Now dont tell a soul, but all these word/visionary wizard projectors of fear and confusion, are gonna be *mighty surprised* when they truly realze WHO Controls Weather Patterns.

Good Evening Ryan,
Some People just don't know who the real Weather Man is do they? I know one thing, the weather we are having now can't be blamed on no Global Warming. LOL. It has been windy and cold this afternoon here in Caraway, AR. My temperature is showing 39 degrees right now on my computer. Is it going to snow anytime soon? I am so wanting some snow. Just SNOW, no ICE.
