All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Are Greenies warming the Planet by Protesting?

Null Hypothesis reports the following facts:

The average person takes 24,000 breaths a day, breathing in approximately 6g of carbon dioxide, but breathing out around 800g during the same time. Over a year, you personally will add a net 290kg of CO2 to the atmosphere, just by exhaling. Multiply that by a global population of 6.5 billion and it adds up to a criminal 1.88 gigatonnes.

If we each merely cut out one breath in three, we could decrease the amount of CO2 entering the atmosphere each year by a staggering 0.63 gigatonnes. That’s 0.63 billion tonnes - the same effect as saving 5 million acres of land (an area the size of Wales) from deforestation, or recycling 192 million tonnes of waste instead of trashing it.
Or saving an area a third the size of Tasmania (16 million acres). But here's the clencher. Null hypothesis goes on to point out that if you exercise, you breathe more and harder. During a strenuous half hour exercise session "we could be expelling an extra 8.3g of carbon dioxide."  So, do your bit Greenies, Stop Exercising.

And remember, protesting - marching around, chanting slogans and waving banners around is like excercising.

Save the planet!  Stop Greenies Protesting.
