Insects Cause Global Warming

Saw this here.

From the Times of India, 'Fighting roach king to control warming'
BANGKOK: More than 100 of Southeast Asia's hardiest bugs measured up this week in Bangkok, where experts met to discuss new ways of controlling the pests, which they say are a major contributor to global warming.

On the sidelines of this year's Pest Summit, insects vied for the title of King Cockroach and Termite Queen.

The chairman of the August 13-15 summit said the competition itself was an important exercise in pest control, while other highlighted the bugs' role in climate change. This year's summit brought with it a global message - insects cause climate change.

Suchart Leelayuthyotin, director of the Thailand Pest Management Association, said bugs are one of the main contributors to global warming because of the CO2 they emit when passing wind.
