Huge plant-eating dinosaurs may have produced enough greenhouse gas by breaking wind to alter the Earth's climate, research suggests.

Like huge cows, the mighty sauropods would have generated enormous quantities of methane.

Sauropods, recognisable by their long necks and tails, were widespread around 150 million years ago.

They included some of the largest animals to walk the Earth, such as Diplodocus, which measured 150 feet and weighed up to 45 tonnes.

Scientists believe that, just as in cows, methane-producing bacteria aided the digestion of sauropods by fermenting their plant food.

Its fact that one Jumbo Jet going one way across the Atlantic from U.K/U.S.A or reverse,spews out more obnoxious gas than 260 cars do in one year..Its not organic life thats wrecking the planet,but try telling that to the Company's who are making mega bucks from the damage they are causing.

next it will be human flatulence due to the overpopulation. The explanations are getting more far out than ever. I am sure all land animals on the planet flatulate at one time or another including scientists. Have to blame it on anything but greenhouse gasses ...

I wish they would come to a more realistic conclusion than flatulence....
