This is another of my marks relative the Al Gore scale of Earth friendly guns. Goofy Algore is the absolute Dean of the School of Planetary Analysis and Eco-Evangelism. Algore predicted that all Arctic ice would be gone by 2013. This gun has a problem, as it is not Earth friendly as it will emit a lot of greenhouse gases, nitrous oxide, methane and will leave a large trailing cloud of carbon. This gun is not carbon neutral. With this turbocharged gun the National Climate Assessment group is convinced this piece is a climate changer. Shooting this piece has a variety of climate effects and can add to global surface temperature for several years. While large amounts of CO2 enter the atmosphere through natural processes, shooting this big bore is becoming a real problem. However, there is good news; You might need to self-impose a carbon tax; the fees collected will be returned to shooters as a monthly dividend for using small to mid-caliber rifles. That is a great after-tax income for Whitetail hunters across North America. This is cutting-edge research.
