LMAO! "Yes, you read that right." (Cuz I really wondered.)
Do cows pollute as much as cars?
"Agriculture is responsible for an estimated 14 percent of the world's greenhouse gases. A significant portion of these emissions come from methane, which, in terms of its contribution to global warming, is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The U.S. Food and Agriculture Organization says that agricultural methane output could increase by 60 percent by 2030 [Source: Times Online]. The world's 1.5 billion cows and billions of other grazing animals emit dozens of polluting gases, including lots of methane. Two-thirds of all ammonia comes from cows."

Intriguing, there are a ton of cows around the world in various farms. Rarely do we hear about cow farts blowing the roof off a building. It mentions a shed, not a barn which fascinates me. What happened there, someone forget to install ventilation? Totally bizarre.
Of course, one has to wonder about the methane output if one should suddenly arrive at a GOP Convention.
