I, along with a number of other bloggers, and even Rush Limbaugh, apparently, fell for what has turned out to be a complete hoax. A made up abstract published at the website of a fake science journal purports to explain global warming by monitoring bacteria emissions. As I stated in the post, I can't claim to understand the research which formed the basis of the argument in the paper, which is now obvious as it was totally made up. It struck me as interesting and I brought it to you.
Did I quickly post a link to a site that seemed to agree with my own suspicions regarding global warming. Yep. Honestly, I can't guarantee it will be the last time. With with literally thousands of outgoing links on this site, I can't promise that all of the information I link to will be correct. So as always, I encourage you look at the research and make up your own mind. We'll both come across bad info now and again, but together, hopefully we can make out what is true and what is not. Thank you to those who informed me of that I had been mislead.
I'll conclude with this, however. The heart of my previous post dealt with the hostile environment surrounding the global warming debate. Despite the the fact that the paper I used as the lead-in was false, it remains true that global warming advocates have a religious zeal about defending their beliefs on the subject and those who dare disagree are scorned (though, certainly, I or anyone else publishing made up research on purpose or accident should be scorned!). As I've stated in the past, I claim no expertise on the science behind the debate, but when the UN's Food and Agricultural Organisation announces, just a few months back, that livestock flatulence accounts for close to one-fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions, I suggest there is room for doubt that we've got it all figured out.
I've left the original post below, feel free to read it for a laugh at my expense!
