Yup, cows contribute more methane to our atmosphere than any other single source. More than coal, landfills and sewage treatment plants.
But the admin has decided no "cow tax" that its difficult to regulate cow burps and gassy emissions from livestock.
At first this article sounds like its just plain old funny, however when you think about it and realize that scientists and our administration knows that cows contribute more methane to our air than any other source - and yet they will proceed with regulating industries that contribute just a small percentage by comparison.
In the print version of the above article was included a chart and graph, showing just how disproportionate the percentages are.
Quote from article:
One contributor to global warming — bigger than coal mines, landfills and sewage treatment plants — is being left out of efforts by the Obama administration and House Democrats to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
Belching from the nation's 170 million cattle, sheep and pigs produces about one-quarter of the methane released in the U.S. each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. That makes the hoofed critters the largest source of the heat-trapping gas.
