Dedicated scientists will stop at nothing in the fight against global warming:
In an attempt to understand the extent of cow flatulence on global warming, scientists in Argentina are strapping plastic bags to the backs of cows to capture their emissions. Argentina has more than 55 million cows, making it a leading producer of beef. In the study, the scientists were surprised to discover that a standard 550-kg cow produces between 800 to 1,000 liters of emissions, including methane, each day…
“When we got the first results, we were surprised,” said Guillermo Berra, a researcher at the National Institute of Agricultural Technology in Argentina. “Thirty percent of Argentina’s (total greenhouse) emissions could be generated by cattle.”
In their study, the researchers attached balloon-like plastic packs to the backs of at least 10 cows. A tube running to the animals’ stomachs collected the gas inside the backpacks, which were then hung from the roof of the corral for analysis.
Unfortunately, the global warming authoritarians will just use this as an excuse to clamp down on cows as well as people.
