You’ve probably heard everything from heat waves and hurricanes to rising sea levels and even major snowstorms blamed on the unproven theory of global warming.  So it should come as little surprise that now, some scientists are actually trying to pin the blame for the extinction of dinosaurs on these overhyped environmental myth.  According to the BBC, researchers in England and the U.S. studied the leaf fossils of ancient gingkoes and ferns and concluded that very high levels of carbon dioxide, probably caused by the impact of a giant asteroid, led to catastrophic global warming which spelled the end for T-rex and his friends.  Ok, and perhaps next we’ll find out that global warming led to the sightings of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
