The bovines produce the gas when they fart and burp, and it has 20 times the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide...

David, if they even tried there'd be 16 petitions the next day because someone would say it was abusive to the cows and an interference with nature.
And of course you can't feed cows grain ~ everybody knows that (except farmers apparently).

Spend one day on the San Diego Freeway and tell me not eating meat is the key to correcting climate change.
But with this article the veggies can cruise around in their 14mph guzzlers with a clean conscience.

Since the general public won't give up their meat unless forced, seems they need to find a way to reduce the methane from beef...the tube and a backpack sounds fun, doesn't it...

Become vegan and save the earth, or die of breathlessness, your choice for the future and your children.

David, good sarcasm requires a very high intelligence! And yes, I'm having an absolute blast!

Why is it that nobody should ever be forced to vaccinate, or submit to background checks, or keep their yard respectable, or drive the speed limit...........but you seriously think all of mankind should be *forced* to change their diet because you think they should?

Now, David, don't get huffy. That was not addressed to you, but the general public.

GREAT HEADLIE !

wins and entry in my thriving collection of ** Dumb * Green * (mind-raping) headLies **

credit where credit due: insering a "help" doeth make it a wee bit less dumb than other examples, but the "create" (instead of replace all...) and the "stop CC" (instead of "slowing the further acceleration of...") tend to push it to the top ...

People need to curb their meat consumption+by a lot--better yet stop eating meat+dairy.
