Conclusive Proof of Global Warming (Part 2) - World Cup Edition

Way, way back last year, before Coopenhagen, before Tony Abbott (Boo! Hiss!), when Kevin Rudd was so popular that everything slid off him as if he was made of Teflon, and he had the most incredible "Preferred Prime Minister" stats, I posted on this site conclusive proof of Global Warming, comparing the French 1959 national team with the French 2009 team.

Scroll down for a proper look.

I've now stumbled across a picture of the French 2010 World Cup team, reproduced below (again compared with the 1959 team):

I am now totally convinced that Global Warming is getting worse. Maybe, we have reached a "Tipping Point". What do you think?

Will be interesting to see if the New Red Headded Lady Prime Minister - who believes in the theory of AGW... does her research into methane......

Methane being released in the Gulf of Mexico could precipitate Global Warming - very very fast:

In an article on Methane Hydrate Ice you find that: Recent discoveries about the existence of a vast band of Methane Hydrate Ice along the world's continental Slopes, at approx. 500 meters depth, have revolutionized the theories of the Ice Age and Global Warming Cycles. The accumulation of Methane Ice leads to Ice Ages and the rapid melting and effervescence of this ice and gas leads to an equally rapid Global Warming.

Vast amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas 23-25 times more potent than carbon dioxide, are locked in the deep sea and in the frozen soils of Siberia, Northern Europe, and North America, but warming could trigger rapid thawing that would release billions of tons into the atmosphere.

"The potential consequences of large amounts of methane entering the atmosphere, from thawing permafrost or destabilized ocean hydrates, would lead to abrupt changes in the climate that would likely be irreversible. We must not cross that threshold.

Anon, I'm afraid that the Methane Debate has been hijacked by those ungrateful Kiwis.

Anyway, Methane combustion is one of those gloriously simple exothermic reactions:

CH4 + 2 x O2 + match = CO2 + 2 x
H2O + energy (i.e.heat)

It is almost like seeing God's hand in there, allowing us to tap into mammal farts in order to produce usable energy.

Imagine, if you can, a feedlot of thousands of animals, all happily belching and farting into multitudes of source pipes, in order to keep their humans in usable energy.

This would indeed be a glorious "thank you" to our God.

Indeed, the sooner we mine sub-sea Methane Hydrate Ice, the better, don't you think?

Me no understandy the football team thingy.....

Is it because I am sane?

Kaboom said...

No, it's simply because you are stupid.

Believe it or not, you can be stupid and sane at the same time.

You've been talking to me wife!

mmm... didn't realise the flimsy webbing of the goal nets afforded so much protection from the suns, “new now 4x more powerful ozone free”, rays.

What do I think???
that you are a fucking brainwashed Idiot if you think AGW is the reason.
Otherwise if you relate to solar activity, well, that might be different.
