Save The Planet- Clear Cut The Rainforest

We need to act urgently to save the planet from the ultimate destruction of global warming...

New source of global warming gas found: plants

LONDON (Reuters) - German scientists have discovered a new source of methane, a greenhouse gas that is second only to carbon dioxide in its impact on climate change.

The culprits are plants.

They produce about 10 to 30 percent of the annual methane found in the atmosphere, according to researchers at the Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany.

The scientists measured the amount of methane released by plants in controlled experiments.

There you have it. The obvious way to save the planet from global warming - if it's not too late. If we just clear cut the rain forest we might have a chance of beating this thing. I mean- What's more important a bunch of damn tress or the whole planet?

We should clear cut the rain forest and make pianos out the wood. That would save the planet AND create thousands of jobs. More jobs means more taxes so we could save the planet and balance the budget at the same time!

The environmentalist claim they want to save the planet but they don't.. If they did, they'd be against the rain forest... It's killing us.

Don't expect the environmentalists to take this information to heart. In a few months, it'll have been swept under the nearest rug.

I've been doing my part to help the situation. I burn approx. 30 face cords of wood per heating season to heat my log home. I could go one step further and put cedar shake shingles on the roof instead of those tar based ones......

But the study also poses questions, such as how such a potentially large source of methane could have been overlooked...

Answer: Mother Nature causing self-inflicting wounds? We all know that Gaia would never hurt herself. All her ills stem from those parasites that devestate her in their greed for power, namely Americans!

Remember, Bush was way out in front on this issue. Why do you think he spends so much time on his vacations chopping down mesquite trees? Because he is trying to do something practical to save the planet, not just a publicity stunt.

As I was strolling today in balmy Cleveland, I noticed the trees budding. Lake Erie isn't frozen, yet. All dire signs that we have global warming, on this day, Jan. 13, 2006.

It's January 13 in N.H., The temperature is a POSITIVE 40 degrees, not a seasonal 40 below. I love global warming. Got to go drive my SUV and plant me some trees.

Russian scientists discover fat consumption crazed people the cause of global warming and it's best to chop most of them down and bury in rain forest. Da Da!

If the tree chopping and piano building (and teaching, and ear plug making) don't create enough jobs, we can always hire people to plant trees.

hey you immoral creep. i wonder if whether or not u've notice that humans are the only living thing in this planet. animals need to live to. that idea is totally FUCKED UP!!! that y its very important to find a better idea... besides the plants change CO2 to O2. y would you want to get rid of that...ever think of that?!!!
