British scientists have calculated the methane output of sauropods, including the species known as Brontosaurus.


By scaling up the digestive wind of cows, they estimate that the population of dinosaurs - as a whole - produced 520 million tonnes of gas annually.


They suggest the gas could have been a key factor in the warm climate 150 million years ago.

That explains why dinosaurs became ex-stinked.

Geesh, I am glad, I am just over 5 feet tall ...
If you are a big person, please stay away from me OK ?

BTW, I do like to see how they *measured* the quantity of the wind produced by the average size cow ...
LBNL, does this whole *research*, really affect our present life ?
Is there really nothing else those nerds can worry about ?
Heavens, here I am just concerned how much more gasoline will cost in the next few decades ...
If that commodity ever gets beyond my reach, no amount of reduction of *flatulence* will help me !
How about feeding cows Beano ???? They say that works ! Who is *they* anyway ???
No brainer !!!
