I see we have gone off topic (if there ever was one).
There was one.... but that was so long, long ago it's too easy to go off on various tangents.
Anyway, back to global warming..... again....
Recent studies are now suggesting that fire ants are responsible for rising temperatures globally. A group of scientists working out of an old shed in a suburban backyard in Brisbane Australia have concluded that fire ants milling around and mating and procreating are the cause of rising temperatures and heatwaves of late. And when you think of it, they're probably right. I mean, sparks fly when just two of 'em get down to doin' the nasty, so it's not hard to imagine millions upon millions of 'em 'sparking' off localised heatwaves as they do what they do do well.
Yes, fire ants are a bigger threat to the planet than the fossil fueled generation of electricity, millions of cars milling about and spewing noxious fumes, and certainly more than the millions of sheep in Australasia [which includes New Zealand] expelling tonnes of methane into the atmosphere each day. I mean, we're lucky that fire ants haven't colonised the poles, or we'd be truly feched. The last thing we need is for the polar ice caps to melt because fornicating fire ants can't keep it in their pants, so let's all hope and pray they don't adapt to extreme cold and set up polar homesteads
