    Actually the real cause of global warming is the politicians won't keep their mouths shut. Think of the number of politicians in Washington DC running their mouth, spewing out hot air, multiply that by hundreds of thousands of politicians all across the country. That's a load of hot air (among other things) getting put out!

    And since hurricanes feed on hot rising air how much is Isaac going to intensify after passing Tampa.

    Well, politician hot-air is generated entirely by the calories consumed (i.e., they burn food energy to produce hot air). An average diet in the Western world requires about 1 liter* of gasoline-based inputs in order to generate one day's worth of food (this is in addition to photosynthetic capture of sunlight, which is obviously energy neutral and carbon neutral). So, really, they're turning fossil fuels into hot air.

    On the other hand, 10mm has the option of being shiny (as you can see). This means that it has a high albedo, and short-wave radiation that strikes it is reflected as (mostly) short-wave radiation. Because those photons are not long-wave radiation (and thus not retained by greenhouse gases), they'll reflect back into outerspace, not adding to the heat on our planet.

    So, yes, the 10mm is awesome enough to contribute global warming, but being awesome, it's also got a compensatory mechanism**. If you carry the gun outside or have it visible to the sun (or at least, visible to the sky) it'll work hard deflecting photons into space.

    *look, in a thread about millimeters, I'm allowed to use liters as a unit!
    **bonus points if your compensator is shiny.
    Our current plan for Universal Iron Lung coverage, just sayin'.

    Burps!

    The methanogenic bacteria live in the cows' stomachs, where they turn cellulosic energy into biomass (for themselves), with a side-product of methane. These nitrogen-fixing bacteria then create proteins for their own growth, but then they end up getting digested by the cattle as the cud is moved down their system. This is how cows get the protein, despite just eating grasses.

    It's the methane in the burps that add to the greenhouse gases! Not farts!

    One climate change contributor is Methane gas
    Methane is contained in flatus and released during defecation
    Defecation occurs every time a politician opens his/her mouth
    Therefore, politicians are climate change contributors

    Politicians, cows, farts, burps,........ Nope. I agree with the OP.... It's the Delta Elete!
