Political Atheist,

We’ve got to do a lot more to fight global warming. This is really really bad news!

About that methane, yep sorry about that. More beans?

Estimates of the contribution to the global budget of methane from termites vary widely, from negligible up to 15 percent.

Are…are you actually saying that because methane’s main contributing factor can’t be controlled, we just need to give up on trying to fight the anthropogenic portion?!?

Wait, your profile says “evil conservative”, you’re one of the leftovers who didn’t flounce, that’s exactly what you’re being flippant about.

No, it means that we have to be more aggressive in taking down what we can so the Clathrate Gun doesn’t fire. That means cutting CO2 further than we would have otherwise, and doing what we can to cut methane. Unfortunately, I’m afraid that what we can do is wipe out Bos taurus as a species since it’s the second-biggest contributor of methane behind the termites. They speculated about that in the early ’90s on one of those ‘alarmist’ shows on PBS.

I’d miss my beef, but I have a feeling humanity as a whole would miss having half the Earth, including most of Russia, habitable moreso.

Fuck-off, do not try to intimidate me.

Oh, so Chrisycat was right and called you on your shit.

Proceed.

Really? I don’t see any intimidation there - I see a factual argument. Oh, and mockery, which appears in this case deserved.

But what about termites? Ha ha ha, Checkmate Warmists!

What you lack in critical thinking skills you make up for with passive aggressive douchery.

re: #7 Coracle

From my post#3, is there a fact you would like to dispute? A link I could read up on? I will wait.

What is WRONG with you?

A commenter disagrees and your response is first to tell him to fuck off, and second to tell him to stop intimidating you. Can you point out what part of his/her post was intimidating?

Are you so fragile that someone who simply disagrees with you is an intimidator, a threat of some kind? Truly an absurd overreaction.

There’s nothing to dispute. Page had link to story about methane.

You linked to something about termites and methane, which didn’t really address the main story about methane. There’s nothing in the main Page story about termites. So WTF?

The inference is ‘yeah, but scientists not sure about methane ergo science about methane not sure.’

Trying reading the original link to the Page before we send you any more.

It should be obvious to you that’s not what I was addressing. I was addressing your unwarranted reaction to Chrysicat’s post, which was not even in the slightest trying to intimidate you.

re: #12 Coracle

It is warranted, I posted a link regarding the production of methane by termites to give the reader a perspective as to the amount of methane produced by well drilling and naturally produced. Chrysicat’s post goes on to belittle me and how I lean politically. Let’s stick to what I posted and go form there. It is really sad I even have to explain it.

What’s really sad is telling people to “fuck off” when they’ve said nothing hostile to you. Again, I’ll ask, Just what is WRONG with you that you would think that’s an appropriate way to respond to someone who just disagrees with you.

And where’s the intimidation you speak of…other than in your imagination?

I am totally sticking to what you posted. I had no beef with your #3. If I had, I would have addressed it. My beef was with your #5. You posted “fuck off”, and you posted a claim Chrisycat was trying to intimidate you. The first wasn’t warranted, the second wasn’t true.

re: #14 palomino

re: #15 Coracle

Well, I guess we different viewpoints on what is considered intimidation.

Actually, we should stick to what was originally posted (nothing about termites) and you can explain what your link about termites is supposed to mean.

re: #18 Flounder

Actually, you didn’t explain why you posted the link. That left Chrysicat to speculate. Had you stated your reasons and intent, it might have avoided considerable gnashing of teeth.

re: #18 Flounder

The perspective you presented doesn’t make sense because it’s missing other information. It’s basically a syllogism.

The original post is methane, under estimated.

Your response is still termites.

The question is termites, what?

If you don’t fill in the gaps, it looks like so what, scientists are wrong anyway because they can’t figure out termites.

Or, no big deal, it’s not a lot because termites.

Or something along those lines, which you can’t explain by reposting an answer to a question nobody asked.
