Which is more outlandish?

A. A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.


B. New research compiled by Australian scientist Dr. Tom Chalko shows that global seismic activity on Earth is now five times more energetic than it was just 20 years ago. The research proves that destructive ability of earthquakes on Earth increases alarmingly fast and that this trend is set to continue, unless the problem of "global warming" is comprehensively and urgently addressed.

If you can't make up your mind, remember Jay Leno talked about the first one indicating that most men felt it was a worthwhile tradeoff.

Which is one is true?

A. The world's 1.5 billion cattle are most to blame. Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together.


B. Livestock could actually be good for the environment according to a new study that found grazing cows or sheep can cut emissions of a powerful greenhouse gas

Both are from studies with B being the most recent. Old slogan, "don't eat meat." New slogan, "Eat a cow and save the world."

How much faith do you have in the IPCC?

The IPCC (the gold standard for global warming) disdains non-peer reviewed literature. In it's last report how many references out of 18,531 sources cited turned out to be not peer-reviewed?

A. 183 or less than 1%
B. 1753 or less than 10%
C. 2,752 or less than 15%
D. 5,587 or over 30%

I'll give you a hint. It's after C.
