Paddy WHACK of biblical proportions
This old man, he played six,
He played knick-knack with some sticks.
This old man, he played seven,
He played knick-knack up in heaven.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.
Methane emissions resulting from human activities are now thought to exceed those from natural sources, annual emissions being around 320 million tonnes. The main human-made sources arise from losses occurring during oil, coal and gas extraction, from ruminant livestock and waste treatment, from landfill sites, rice cultivation and biomass burning.
World methane production due to paddy fields has been estimated to be in the range of 50 to 100 million tonnes per annum.
Agriculture is responsible for an estimated 14 percent of the world's gases. A significant portion of these emissions come from methane, which, in terms of its contribution to , is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The U.S. Food and Agriculture Organization says that agricultural output could increase by 60 percent by 2030 [Source: ]. The world's 1.5 billion cows and billions of other grazing animals emit dozens of polluting gases, including lots of methane. Two-thirds of all comes from cows.
First things number never lies but more than often numbers are twisted beyond recognition with everyone’s devious bias and fallacy and deception method.
Here certainly numbers don’t match as 100 over 350 is way over 14 percent. Even at the lowest estimate of 50 million tons, Rice paddies would be responsible alone for the 14% not counting the rest. That is assuming the 350 million tons figure is right to begin with.
But it is quite interesting though that there is no cows and no rice paddies in the media bullshit. There is always a hidden agenda somewhere.
As always I know nothing about nothing but one of the things I don’t know is a Nobel Prize does not make you Noble or even honest for that. The sceptic that I am always looks for a hidden agenda and for a money trail.
Obviously all this makes the “solution” ever more complex altogether. I have the feeling that nature and Gaia or whosoever will have to take care of its problems without or despite our help.
Culling is the word that comes to mind in that case. It seems more and more obvious that we never have and that we can’t supply for 7 billions of us, let alone the 9 billion predicted for 2045-2050.
Thoughout the thousands and thousands of years of civilisation there has never been such a growth.
Hell it took us til 1800 to hit our first billion ever. 1900 for 2 billion and I still remember the 3 billion of my school days in the sixties. But now the exponential growth is about comparable to exponential growth in atomic fission. Something’s gotta give.
Shit is bound to hit the fan one way or another as we keep raping the planet and overfilling it. And Nature can whip our skinny ass any fucking time She wants as we have all seen thousands of times.
Forces in play seem unstoppable, greed has turned into a starving murderous monster and bullshit is rampant. May you live in interesting time they said; well we sure have a front row seat to the fireworks of this eon. No need to line up at ticketmaster for this one. The biggest fucking Domino Effect is coming to a neighbourhood near you anytime now. . How high can a tsunami go at best on a good day? J
From what I hear about methane clathrate, the last BP “incident” could be a fire cracker compared to Hiroshima.
The biggest fucking OOPS you ever heard off.
And that is only one scenario; there are thousands of scenarios at play, known and unknown as what’s his name would say.
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.
I must thank Liz Jensen and The Rapture for that line of thought but it sure is an interesting possibility along with all the other “believers” who think things will take care of themselves one way or another and that a bit like the dinosaurs our “footprint” on this planet might only be a buried fossil on a very thin layer of this earth. Pride cometh before the Fall but Greed will make it a much bigger fall of biblical proportions as they say.
‘Nuff said for now!
