Seems wise to say
that I for one welcome our Titanoboanic overlords. Please don't eat me, sire.
Scientists say they have discovered fossil remains of a colossal prehistoric snake that once roamed the superheated Paleocene jungles of South America. The one-tonne Titanoboa cerrejonensis would have been more than 40 feet long and ten feet around at its thickest. Investigating brainboxes say the mighty snake's huge size was …
was the 30ft dragonflies of the Carboniferous period when all our oil and coal was being laid down. The size of an insect is limited by how much oxygen its primitive breathing system can absorb. What percentage of oxygen would the atmosphere have to have to support a 30ft dragonfly?
I want one of those for a pet. I'd feed it climate clowns, and the world would be better for it. When I run out of climate clowns, I'd feed it PETA whackjobs. The world would be a _much_ better place as a result. After that, perhaps a tour of Parliament, starting with the Tory backbench. (Not that there's a difference between the Tories and NuLab, but I've got to start somewhere.)
What percentage of deforestation is attributable to biofuel plantations, exactly?
So biofuel - bad, climate change - good for trees.
Oh, just a moment, I thought you previously suggested that climate change was a myth?
Given particular views on new tech, especially emergant env. tech, did you also argue against unleaded petrol, and for dumping nuclear waste at sea? Now you're jesting that climate change would be positive!!
Excuse me, I prefer my rejurgated news without a spinkling of luddite BS, and the revenue from my page hit to go somewhere more worthy.
"fourty feet long and ten feet diameter? This lard ball only crushed its prey by rolling over them. it couldn't bend itself with dimensions like that. Like folding a phone book in half."
I think you mis-read; it's 40 feet long and 10 feet in GIRTH around it's fattest bit. I suppose all things are relative, so if it was squishing a sabre-toothed tiger or something it would be able to bend enough.
Can't wait until global warming gets to the point where we can expect to see these at Twycross Zoo. Hell, we could feed elephants to it!!
Paris, 'cos she knows what to do with a big snake (allegedly).
Shurely you would have to swing past Number 10 and Number 11 and rid us of Broooooooon and Dorkling first? And please take your snake walkies/slithers through Hollywood as there are a number of gormless luvvies that need to stop telling us how to live from up in their ivory towers.
It's been suggested that oxygen might have been up to 35% of the atmosphere which would put it well above the level where fire becomes a real threat even in the soggiest conditions. But, in the absence of any trapped atmospheric samples from the Carboniferous, this is an extrapolation from modern insect physiognomy.
