REVENGE of the Swamp Thing

The latest in global warming news comes from the journal Nature Geoscience with a study entitled "Global Warming Predicted To Hasten Carbon Release From Peat Bogs." Billions of tons of carbon are sequestered in the world's peat bogs, which may be released into the atmosphere in the coming decades as a result of global warming. Such an atmospheric release of even a small percentage of the carbon locked away in the world's peat bogs would dwarf emissions of manmade carbon, say scientists at Harvard University, Worcester State College, and the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology

Personally, I think it's going to be cow farts that ruin the environment and end civilization as we know it.
