And the true believers in global warming lose:
Did dinosaurs cause climate change? Huge creatures may have contributed to their own demise because they produced so much flatulence, say scientists
If I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest a change in title to the editor of that London Daily Mail piece. The word "scientists," in this case, should be in quotation marks.
To quote Wikipedia:
"In English writing, quotation marks or inverted commas (informally referred to as quotes or speech marks) ... can ...be used to indicate a different meaning of a word or phrase than the one typically associated with it and are often used to express irony."
I'd say a scientist who dreams up a theory without the slightest shred of evidence but with a boatload of wishful thinking is - at least - ironic.
If not downright pathetic.
