After receiving the lates issue of Scientific America, I saw an article titled "Methane, Plants and Climate Change"

aftyer reading some of it I was supprised to know about how much methane Plant do really give off.

Global warming is at the top of my list of my list as to why I maintain my vegan lifestyle (Dietary I add so as not to offend some people around here who are better than I am). I started out trying a Vegan Diet just to lower my colestrol for an upcoming test that I took and after learning much about Veganism and the world we live in I have maintained my Vegan status (Dietary I add so as not to offend some people around here who are better than I am).

So My argument isn't as strong as it use to be as.

Here is another article I found That was printed a year earlier.

Don't worry. The wave of articles that showed up after the discovery seemed to play the "OOOO TREES are now BAD!!1!" angle a bit hard.

From the site: "According to the researchers, the most frequent misinterpretation was that the emission of methane from plants was responsible for global warming. They explain that these emissions have existed since long before man arrived on the scene and that plant emissions are part of what they call "the natural greenhouse effect." These emissions should not be confused with the anthropogenic (man-made) emissions which are responsible for the well-documented increasing atmospheric concentrations of methane since pre-industrial times. The researchers added that even if land use practices have altered plant methane emissions (which the study did not examine), this would also be regarded as an anthropogenic source."
