Science Cracks A Politically Correct Global Warming Myth
But new (UN-politically correct) research shows that plants are responsponsible for much of the greenhouse effect.
From New Scientist magazine comes this:
Vegetation, it seems, releases methane - not just when it rots, but under normal conditions. And it's no small amount either - between 10 and 30 per cent of all the methane pumped into the atmosphere. One reason why we may have missed this "minor detail" is that we know of no physiological reason why plants should make methane
The finding clears up a number of observations that previously defied explanation, such as why methane emissions from rice plants increase with the area of foliage, and why rainforests give off large methane plumes.
I do believe we need to conserve energy and reduce the greenouse impact of industry and personal habits, but it needs to be done from within a sound, scientific and rational framework.
