Earth Day 2012 - Measuring Cow Farts


This is an example of how stupid the entire cult of environmentalism is. Some "scientists" measured the amount of methane in cow farts by way of saving the Earth from something or other. If you look closely at virtually everything environmentalists say about any subject, you will conclude that it closely resembles cow farts.

When Communism collapsed in the 20th century, the Reds simply changed their color to Green.

This color change also helped them to become allies with the Islamists, who not only love the color Green, but live Green in some of the poorest countries in the world where life is short, nasty and brutal.

Why isn't PETA complaining about the cruelty to these animals as their bodily functions are measured?

Poor cows.

I was just informed by a cowboy friend of mine, that 90% of methane released from a cow comes from their mouth, not their butt. Besides all their other problems, these people are measuring from the wrong end.

Also heard the 99% of all methane comes from wetlands. So if these people are truly worried about methane they had better start draining the swamps.

@Chuck. Your friend is right. It is more accurate to say cow belches, not farts...but I took a small liberty with this in order to capture the reader's attention and, yes, the tank is attached to the wrong end!

@PaigeN. Poor cow indeed! I just polished off a steak (It was delicious) and nobody seems to take notice of this when the dine on a juicy hamburger, etc.

Years ago the cartoonist, Al Capp, famed for Lil Abner, created a character called a Shmoo that lived to provide all manner of things we eat and drink. He may have been thinking of cows.

Did I read somewhere that releasing methane is now a palliative for AGW?

Alan - if there is one video that you watch, watch this one. It's excellent and should be mandatory viewing for all American's - actually, for everyone in the world who has an ounce of common sense.

If I wanted America to fail....

@Larry: That's assuming there is such a thing as AGW...which there isn't.

Every swamp and bog in the world releases methane and always has.

So much for Green science, eh?

I understand all that, have since the backyard incinerator wars, global cooling, eternal drought, nuclear winter eras.

My question was rather specifically, did I read recently that the AGW folks or some subset said that some process (that released methane, was The Answer?

I am old and my memory fails but it fairly reliable about whether something happened, but never has be reliable about when or where.

I'll see if I can find it again.

Then see if I can remember that here is where there was an interest.
