Global warming is in deep manure
President Obama’s agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack announced at the Copenhagen climate change summit that methane gas emissions from the U.S. dairy industry will be reduced by 25 percent by 2020. Step aside big oil and big industry, now we have big cow flatulence causing global warming.
“U.S. to Capture Cow Farts to Save the Planet,” is the title of the recent piece appearing in Daily Finance.
Far left liberals are truly disturbed people.
Here’s part of the Dept. of Agriculture news release:
Through the agreement, USDA and the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy will increase the number of anaerobic digesters supported by USDA programs. Beyond promoting the digesters, the agreement will encourage research, and development of new technologies to help dairies reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Of course, it’s one thing to convert cow-produced methane to energy if it’s actually economically feasible. But it’s quite another matter to fret over cow emissions in hopes of saving the planet from undocumented AGW.
One comment poster, WWWelling, at the Daily Finance site had a little fun with the story:
