Cow Gas Killing The World

Cows having gas is worse then vehicle emitting tailpipe emissions, this is according to the UN.

Gastrointestinal emissions from cows and other livestock add more to global warming than tailpipe emissions from cars.

That, according to a report by, is from data released by panel that convened at the United Nations this week to discuss ways the information-technology industry could help improve the environment.

So vehicles must be the next worse poluters right?

Just behind livestock emissions as the leading source of the greenhouse gases -- water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone -- that contribute to Earth's surface temperature are pollutants spewing from factories and the manufacturing infrastructure.

Now vehicles right? Sort of ...

Coming in third among the world's chief contributors to the global carbon emissions problem: cars, trains and ships.

So vehicles are no worse then trains or ships.

But yet the vehicles we drive are the only thing that is being blammed for carbon emissions and the push to make vehicles "spew" less emissions is the only thing in the envirowakco's sites.

So punishing the automotive makers in the long run isn't going to do jack shit for reducing carbon emissions.

Get those cows some maalox and all our carbon problems will take care of themselves.

Hell, I thought dog farts were bad... That is a good point though, Beeno for Bovines. There's a greenpeace t-shirt in there somewhere.
