    I understand methane is released from newly exposed tundra once the ice melts.

    I arrived late and wonder what I missed in meeting people and talking about the topic. CAFOs do present a big climate change problem and are not yet subject to much regulation under the Clean Air Act, if any. The Agricultural lobby is powerful. Here's some info, for anyone interested. The methane's the biggest problem.

    They are a huge water quality problem too.

    Thanks for organizing, Duncan.

    Thanks to all the people who patiently allowed photos of the meetup be taken; unfortunately the memory card we were using was full and we cannot post them..! Ugh!

    I can't tell if you are mocking climate change or making fun of people who mock climate change. In any case, it sounds like a pointless discussion. I agree that we should let the idiots debate global warming for a change. It's so much more entertaining to listen to the clueless make irrelevant points and then laugh about them.

    Here's a good joke: Two strangers are on the Titanic. One goes up to the other and says, "Allow me to break the ice."

    What about HUMAN release of METHANE per year? ;) Would be interesting to see statistics of vegetarians vs. carnivores Seriously - the article @ was very intriguing. I remember reading about the ozone issues in New Zeland due to sheep methane release. So much energy going to waist..haha

    Hi Rudy-- as you can abundantly see in the description Pseudo-intellectuals are most welcome, this is because the "genuine intellectual" snobs need to demonstrate their know how but you are very welcome to contradict them & make them look ridiculous.

    This would be my first meetup with this group. What to expect? I am a not-so-smart intellectual with a not-at-all snob attitude. :-)

    Hersh, thanks very much for the contribution. Your theory seems to say that climate change has natural causes but the video I posted (description above) says that yes cloud cover is one key however it (video) says the clouds can be created unnaturally & be man-made. Are you advocating that nature, which gives us life & sustains us, is suddenly ruining the planet?

    Here is a theory that states the amount of cloud formation is what causes global warming and the amount of cloud formation is caused by solar activity from the sun as well as solar rays. The scientists that did this research are not affiliated with any special interest group and their research /articles have been peer reviewed and published in respectable scientific journals.
