Worried about CO2 and Methane?

Well, apart from these two well known greenhouse gases, there are now a couple more to worry about too, as this from SciScoop reports.

Apparently, concentrations of nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) and sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2) are rapidly increasing in our atmosphere and both are known to be powerful greenhouse gases.

Just how many more straws can we (mankind) load onto the camel's back?

Criminy! What else?

It's a pity the piece does not go more into the consumer chain that results in these babies. I'm gathering that LCD TVs are bad, and am betting quiet a few ardent lite-greenies have a few in the home even as we bemoan bottled water.

And as for camels, don't go there... I mean just think what their digestive processes do to the planetary burden.
