It’s raining. In California. In the summer.*
Where do I go to sacrifice a goat to the Scientific Consensus?
But wait – is a living goat a net sequesterer (is that a word?) of carbon? Does he emit (ahem) more carbon than is locked up in his carbon-based body? Seems I’d need to sacrifice him by freezing or burying him in a hermetically sealed container – burning is right out. And none of this address the net effect of a goat eating vegetation, which packs away at least some carbon, emits (!) some other – yet promotes the growth of more vegetation, which locks away more carbon….
Man, this is as complicated as deciding to get a Prius.
* Rainy season in this part of California is from October to May, with most of the the rain in November through April. Summers are usually completely dry. So, we’re having a bit of what qualifies as a downpour around here – 1 day before the end of summer, 9 days before the ‘rainy season’. I’ll keep an eye out for someone in the press asserting that this is somehow related to global warming, and report back.
