i work from home. i haven't 'commuted' for years and years. i don't drive. my kid gets jogged into school. i garden and buy food from the farmers' market which is about 200 feet from my house, and the rest comes from a store at the end of the block. i don't go on vacation places.

so i guess in spite of not considering myself to be a "greenie", i have earned the right to call you a fucking retard.

congratulations! you're a fucking retard.

skimming the article, they seem to talk of very long terms. like thousands of years, not 100.

there doesn't appear to be anything in the article about the GWP of CH4 over a 100-year window. perhaps you can show it to me, given that you accused the fact of being "BS".

Methane degrades into CO2, in fact, so in simulations I did (Archer and Buffett, 2005) the radiative forcing from the elevated methane concentration throughout a long release was about matched by the radiative forcing from the extra CO2 accumulating

what's a 'long release'?

Methane doesn't last long in the atmosphere

that '25 times as powerful as CO2' statistic is its equivalent over a 100-year period. even though methane may not last long before being oxidized into CO2, during that period it has a much greater forcing.

trust me here, methane aint nothin to fuck with. tightening up leaks is inarguably a good thing.

That's what you get when you elect a man with three Muslim names. His middle name is the best, though: "Hussein". I love saying that! "Hussein". It drives the lefties into a rage!

yeah, if there's one thing 'lefties' hate it's muslims. and sorry, but only his middle name is muslim. i know, i know, when it comes to those goofy africans and their silly names it can be hard to tell the difference but for real and everything!
