Once oxygen made it into the atmosphere, Kaufman's team suggests that it reacted with methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, to form carbon dioxide, which is 62 times less effective at warming the surface of the planet. "With less warming potential, surface temperatures may have plummeted, resulting in globe-encompassing glaciers and sea ice" said Kaufman.

A-Hah!

So the whole 'carbon-credit' thing is crap!

It's cow farts! (Supposedly the leading generator of methane

THAT'S what is destroying the icecaps!

So, in-order to halt the impending Ice-Apocalypse, we must destroy as much of the Oxygen in the Atmosphere and Oceans as we possibly can, right?

The Rain Forest is SO about to get its Ass kicked...........

I did. What an awesome book that is, 10X better than the crap I got in hard copy. I'm going to print all 400 pages here at work; we even have a binding machine I used for the VStrom manual.

I have the carbs clean as a whistle and ready for reinstallation. I have to order replacement bolts; several had to be drilled to get them out. But, at little progress is better than none at all.

That was a really nice thing you did Buzz, sending me those manuals. I appreciate it.

I took one look at it and realized I had no business owning a 1970s motorcycle.

One thing I did notice about the RD owner's manual: The owner was expected to do nearly all the maintenance back then. It's practically a service manual.

Owner's manuals these days are 500 pages of "take it to your nearest dealer."

I've snuck into so many seminars without you knowing, I figured I owed you one.
