Australian Taxpayers Confront the Bovine Flatulence Menace

One of the many ludicrous aspects of the global warming hoax is the fact that farting farm animals produce more greenhouse gas than all forms of human transportation combined. Why did climate change suddenly become a problem in the 1990s? Haven't animals been farting for a while now?

Never mind that — the important thing is to stop cows from farting before the polar bears drown. To achieve this urgent objective, scientists want to apply bacteria found in the stomach lining of kangaroos to cattle. Others just want to eat the kangaroos.

Australia has already spent over A$1bn on this sort of research, and with a kooky Labour government now in control, the spending rate won't be slowing down. It might be cheaper to forget both the cattle and the kangaroos and just eat caviar.

If only we could get cows to fart sulfates.

On a tip from Ian from the EUSSR.

Yesterdays low was 7F, blowing away the 1977 record by 5F degrees. 1977 - the height of the Global Cooling scare when they told us within 10 years the snow and ice in Buffalo NY might not melt completely even in July.

Do Polar Bears fart? They may be responsible for their own demise :-)

Do cows fart in the pasture? Do bears fart in the woods?

1. Build cars that run on methane.
2. attach collection bags to cows.
Problem solved.

I wonder if this could be harmful to the cows. It would be typical of moonbats to harm animals in an attempt to save them from a fictional disaster. Kinda like those "save the trees" idiots who permanently disfigured some trees at Berkeley by living in them.
