Dino farts warmed the earth

Giant dinosaurs could have warmed the planet with their flatulence, say researchers.
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.
How very inconsiderate.

And how grateful we must be to our state broadcaster for highlighting such important facts.
