Breathing contributes to global warming

| December 14, 2023

A new study claims that humans are contributing to global warming simply through the breathing process. In addition to carbon dioxide (CO2), humans exhale nitrogen (N), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). The authors of the study said that both methane and nitrous oxide are global warming contributors. Dr. Cowan, the lead researcher behind this study, acknowledged that plants soak up the CO2 that humans exhale, but the other two culprits are not used in photosynthesis.

From The Daily Mail:

The new study was led by Dr Nicholas Cowan, an atmospheric physicist at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Edinburgh.

‘Exhaled human breath can contain small, elevated concentrations of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), both of which contribute to global warming,’ Dr Cowan and colleagues say.

‘We would urge caution in the assumption that emissions from humans are negligible.’

As most of us remember from science classes at school, humans breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.

When we inhale, air enters the lungs, and oxygen from that air moves to the blood, while carbon dioxide (CO2), a waste gas, moves from the blood to the lungs and is breathed out.

With plants, it is the other way round; plants use CO2 to create oxygen as a by-product (the process known as photosynthesis).

Every person breathes out CO2 when they exhale, but in their new study, the researchers focused on methane and nitrous oxide.

Hahahahaha! I can’t breathe from laughing so hard!

That was the intent of the steaming pile of esteemed person’s statement, right?


If he is so concerned, then he needs to quit contributing to the gas output.

After all, if he doesn’t have the courage of his convictions, why should we care?

Another subtle way of saying they need a whole bunch of people to die and make way for the “better” people to live comfortably…

People like this need to be watched rather carefully lest they descend further into madness.


Hasn’t that been the whole point of the bat flu and the jab?


No, they should be killed. Fuck them.




Dr. Cowan should just hold his breath until he becomes carbon-neutral and assumes room temperature.

Dr. Cowan, Gretta Bugeater, and Al Gore are three of the biggest oxygen thieves in the world.

Places for research like the UK Center for Ecology and Hydrology will produce whatever results are expected by whoever is funding the study. In Dr. Cowan’s case, he was paid to come up with reasons and beliefs that humans contribute to global warming because of breathing. Following the “science”, which is dogshit.


Well said! This crap is all about grants and their funding. Whoever comes up with the most stunning “climate crisis” theory gets all the funds they want.

Dr. Cowan can eat a bag of dicks, while holding his breath.


If he can’t eat them while holding his breath, they can be placed elsewhere.

Libs want us all to die.
They still believe the overpopulation bullshit.

Global warming is also part of their cult.


I can’t wait until Paul Ehrlich dies so I can piss on his grave.

What’s next, are they going to call for a ban on eating beans because THAT also ends up in gas emissions? Those shit-for-brained moonbats aren’t worth even a squirt of a real working man or Woman’s piss.

All members of the TAH community contribute to global warming on a daily basis. Hugely.


Some more than others, I’d add!


We, The People are the carbon they want to reduce, y’all know that, right?

I believe that all of the hot air spewed out by these idiots is contributing to “Gore Bull Warming” more than anything else.



Amateur Historian

I don’t like where this is going.


You don’t have to eat bugs. They have this wonderful new product called Soylent Green. They call it green because it reduces carbon dioxide. It is made out miracle ingredients.


Miricle ingredients… Just like the covid jabs.


Just so you know…it’s really a thing. I don’t know if they’re idiots or marketing geniuses. All I know is, I won’t drink it.


“Plant protein “.





well, if cows eat plants, and we eat cows, and we all know who ends us as soylent green, then isn’t it just processed plant protein?

Kinda like oil and natural gas are both just composted dinosaurs… what could be greener?


Oil and coal are both organic compounds, and therefore produce “green” energy.


The movie took a lot of license. In the original novel (Make Room! Make Room!), “soylent” was a portmanteau of “soy” and “lentil” and it was much closer to things like veggie burgers, the Impossible products, and all the other lab grown meats that no one wants to eat.

The company, Soylent, is basically a bunch of software engineers trying to bio-hack nutrition for the vegan market. They probably understand marketing even less than they do nutrition, but the company name tracks with its literary origin.


Yes, we know the origin of the name in the book and the movie. Regardless of the origin of the actual product, I can’t believe that a bunch of geeks (software engineers) wouldn’t have read the book, seen the movie, or been aware of the “Soylent Green is people” memes. Again, idiots or marketing geniuses…


So, in short, while we live, we provide plant food, and when we die, we provide plant fertilizer. Win Win for the plants if you ask me.

So when I blow out a candle, how comes it’s not like a blow torch.


Ssshhh, stop asking them hard questions. They will want a grant so that can be studied.


It’s people that this that are a primary cause of Global Warming…Just call for Sweet Baby Ray…

To quote Samantha Fox:
Naughty girls need love, too!


Speaking of… yes, they sure do:


I’m not always a fan of barbecue sauce, but there are always exceptions. And those are two very spectacular exceptions.


I believe the great man himself (IDC SARC) would know EXACTLY what to do in such as emergency. 🚨


I think the “author’ of the study and all their cohorts need to hold their breath. That would be a great start.


Went for Mexican food tonight. I’m sure I will be releasing elevated levels of methane by morning.


You know Leftists will go next:

The new Star Wars trilogy is so bad, that this girl, what’s-her-name, looks better in this picture than in the multimillion dollar movies.
Thank Kathleen Kennedy. She destroyed Star Wars.



Dennis - not chevy

‘and here we go back to Walt Kelly. Seasoned readers may recall Albert and Cherchez discussing how breathing caused carbon dioxide or monoxide or one of them. To lessen air pollution some decided to only exhale while others only inhaled.

Perhaps we should have elected Pogo for President.

“Pogo for President”
President Pogo.
Has a nice ring to it.


If you think global warming is getting bad because of my breathing, wait until I start farting…


Ok there, Congressman Swallwell. 🤣
