Say, what?


Wednesday, July 11, 2007


OK, so they're not as fresh as a daisy.

Scientists say cow burps (not flatulence) are responsible for one greenhouse gas widely believed to be part of the cause of global warming.

The average dairy cow belches out about 100 to 200 liters of methane each day. Experts didn't specify how much methane the poofers produce.

So now they want to change the cows' diet so they will belch less. I wonder which celebrity cow they will get to prove their theories.

As a side note, I was going to embed this informative YouTube electric cow video, but instead, I thought the manure bath below was laugh-out-loud funny.

I've sank, sunk (and sunken) to a new low.

Think BEANO for cows!
I am of the camp that thinks Global warming is a normal occuring event. The scientific community is so divided over whether it is a legitmate event.
Al Gore, his legacy weakened by the "hanging chad" issues in Florida in the last election,now attempts to secure his legacy.
How much methane gas did ole' Al
spew last Saturday at the Meadowlands?
BTW,his son recently busted for drug possesion was caught driving 100 MPH in a Prius! That should make dad proud,eh? No emissions and able to do 100 MPH.Hoo AAAH!

I have always had problems with the global warming debate. It tends to be slanted as it is a politically correct view at the moment.

We don't know enough about historical earth temperatures to determine this. Should we be good caretakers, of course, but I am tired of the chicken littles. The long will be thriving long after we are gone.

Clearly, what the farmers need to do is feed the cows methanol in lieu of grass. The cow belches would then come out "green" and the ecosystem would be so much better off.
