OMG.

Look up "ad hominem"

It means attacking the person. I was characterizing your argument, not you.

This discussion is clearly getting no where. Good luck with the rest of your life.

I guess english is a second language for you

The definition of idiotic is:
of, relating to, or characteristic of an idiot.

By suggesting someone's ideas or arguments are idiotic you are in fact suggesting those arguments were made by an idiot.

And of course that was your intent anyways....you just want to appear to take the high road when in fact the vast majority of what you do here is attack people rather than argue ideas from basis of fact. A quick perusal through your posts is quite demonstrative to that end.

Effect of methane on climate change could be 25% greater than we thought

Research led by the University of Reading indicates that emissions of methane due to human activity have, to date, caused a warming effect which is about one-third of the warming effect due to carbon dioxide emissions – this methane contribution is 25% higher than previous estimates.

The new study, by Maryam Etminan and colleagues, is published in the American Geophysical Union's journal Geophysical Research Letters. The full report is open access and freely available.

The scientists calculated that, while carbon dioxide remains by far the most significant gas driving human-induced climate change, methane, while much less abundant, is even more potent than previously thought. They found that a one tonne emission of methane has the equivalent warming effect of 32 tonnes of carbon dioxide – up from the previous estimate of 28.

thanks vox.....this will be important for New Zealand......almost half of our emissions come from agriculture
