More Climate Change input

 

This new study on greenhouse gas emitting factors, as all new studies will show I suspect, admits that we don’t know all that we need to know about Climate Change and what forces will be driving it.  It’s going to be complicated. 

This particular study shows that lakes and streams emit greenhouse gases more than suspected.  Of course, those desperate to prove that Climate Change is a fraud will say (and they are) that this study proves that natural forces are responsible for Climate Change not mankind and industrialization.

As I said, Climate Change is complicated.  But, one thing is certain.  Average temperatures are going up

Lakes a big source of climate-warming gas: study: Scientific American "Lakes and rivers emit far more of a powerful greenhouse gas than previously thought, counteracting the overall role of nature in soaking up climate-warming gases, a study showed on Thursday. OSLO (Reuters) - Lakes and rivers emit far more of a powerful greenhouse gas than previously thought, counteracting the overall role of nature in soaking up climate-warming gases, a study showed on Thursday. A review of 474 freshwater systems indicated they emitted methane equivalent to 25 percent of all carbon dioxide -- the main greenhouse gas blamed for stoking climate change -- absorbed by the world's land areas every year.
