Like huge cows, the mighty sauropods would have generated enormous quantities of methane.

Sauropods, recognisable by their long necks and tails, were widespread around 150 million years ago.

They included some of the largest animals to walk the Earth, such as Diplodocus, which measured 150 feet and weighed up to 45 tonnes. <---Snip

What science? This is pure speculation based on presumptions that the dominant lifeform of the era causes it's own extinction.

The PC crowd wants us to believe that dinosaurs were the SUVs of their time.

This reads like something from the Onion.

Imagine how hot it would be if Buffalo Bill and the boys had killed all of those buffalo. They were the first environmental wackos.

At least three times this stupidity has been posted on FR. The moderator consistently freezes all manner of important threads because of duplicates.

How about freezing or deleting the duplicates for this one?

Oh, the HORRORS of all those “Blazing Saddles” camp fire scenes!! I knew they were gross, but A MORTAL THREAT TO THE ENVIRONMENT. Worst of all, I was planing to sponsor an international farting contest. Quick, take me to the reeducation camp.

The dinosaurs didn't do it by themselves. They needed lots of beans.
So the article should blame both equally.
Today its ALGORE & Beans.

Global Warming is more of a religion than a god to them...

Most leftists deny God, but still feel the burden of sin and the need to justify themselves as “good people”. Environmentalism provides that outlet for them.

Sounds plausible to me - we know washed-up politicians passing gas are mainly responsible for all the global warming concern today.

The mother dinosaur managed to avoid a number of dangers all day, ranging from a T-Rex to walking off a cliff.
At the end of the day, one of her brood asked her how she knew to do all those things.
She replied, “My instincts.”
He said, “My end stinks too, but it doesn’t tell me anything!”

The giant sauropods referred to were extinct by the Cretaceous. In fact the number of dinosaur species had diminished to about 26 or so. And while triceratops and the hadrosaurs may have been flatulent, I don’t thinki they were capable of producing the amount of CO2 the article envisages.

''Our simple proof-of-concept model suggests greenhouse warming by sauropod megaherbivores could have been significant in sustaining warm climates.''

And just look what happened to the planet!!! It's, uh, .... still here.

Well, look what happened to life on the planet!!! It, uh, increased and diversified a million-fold. You could say that since the dinosaurs life has gone ape s#!t all over the world. Just catastrophic isn't it?

What a load of crap.

When one of these “scientists” can explain why the hottest period on record is the Roman period (not an SUV in sight) we’ll consider to their theories.
Until then weather happens.

Did dinosaurs cause climate change? Huge creatures may have contributed to their own demise because they produced so much flatulence, say scientists

How could the dinosaurs release more carbon into the atmosphere than was in the vegetation that they ultimately acquired it from?
