I just read an article written by Annie Indri Lestari about dinosaur farts warms the earth from one of the news media will I postingkan it here.
Farting dinosaurs are believed to have warmed the Earth during the Mesozoic era. Thisis the conclusion of new research published in the journal Current Biology. Researcherscalculate the dinosaur farts contain methane warmed the earth during the Mesozoic era.According to the calculations of scientists, dinosaur that lived around the Earth 150million years ago produced more methane naturally.
“A simple mathematical model showed that the microbes living in the dinosaur digestionproduces methane gas and has a significant impact on the climate of the Mesozoic,”said researcher John Moores, Dave Wilkinson of the University of Liverpool.
They calculate methane emissions from modern animals currently relies on the totalmass of the animal concerned. Some of the dinosaurs with the calculation of thedinosaurs 44 thousand pounds of weight will produce about 520 million tons of methaneemissions per year.
Unlike carbon dioxide, methane emissions are substantially since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution has declined by about 200 million tons per year. As for cows,goats, giraffes only emits between 50 million and 100 million tons of methane per year.
Methane is a greenhouse gas, and potentially 25 times more likely to climate warmingas carbon dioxide. This gas is a factor of global warming. Until now, scientists are stillworking to determine how much methane gas produced cattle, sheep, and other plant-eating animals.
