Belching Moose Latest Cause of Global Warming

Well, I guess whacking 35,000 of them during the next hunt should help alleviate the burgeoning global warming problem.

Better yet, maybe we can get all the environmental extremists together with the animal rights wackos and they can all bore each other to death with their insipid psychobabble.

Norway's Moose Population in Trouble for Belching
The poor old Scandinavian moose is now being blamed for climate change, with researchers in Norway claiming that a grown moose can produce 2,100 kilos of methane a year -- equivalent to the CO2 output resulting from a 13,000 kilometer car journey.

Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.

Norwegian newspapers, citing research from Norway's technical university, said a motorist would have to drive 13,000 kilometers in a car to emit as much CO2 as a moose does in a year.
Maybe if all these researchers didn't need to justify the absurd sums of money devoted to the global warming scam, they wouldn't be reduced to producing such ridiculous reports.
Norway has some 120,000 moose but an estimated 35,000 are expected to be killed in this year's moose hunting season, which starts on September 25, Norwegian newspaper VG reported.
