A proposed set of legislative goals released by a pair of Democratic freshmen members of Congress mentions getting fewer emissions from farting cows, but they want to work with farmers, too. The Green New Deal was released on Feb. 7 by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and aims to eliminate greenhouse gas emission while revamping the U.S. economy...While the legislation doesnt have much more in details about the role agriculture will play in this effort, a FAQ sheet released with the Green New Deal does paint a different picture. In a section of the FAQ sheet asking about the difference between the goal of going 100% clean and renewable versus 100% renewable there is a call out about methane emissions in cattle. We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we arent sure that well be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero, the FAQ sheet reads.

It’s natural. Cows have a differant digestive system that produces a lot of gas. I’ll take a cow fart a lot faster that smelling pig poop.
Uh oh, Debbie Stabenow has to go!

They want to stop us from eating beef, and force us to eat grasshoppers instead.

The U.N. has new weapons to fight hunger, boost nutrition and reduce pollution, and they might be crawling or flying near you right now: edible insects. The Food and Agriculture Organization on Monday hailed the likes of grasshoppers, ants and other members of the insect world as an underutilized food for people, livestock and pets. A 200-page report, released at a news conference at the U.N. agency's Rome headquarters, says 2 billion people worldwide already supplement their diets with insects, which are high in protein and minerals, and have environmental benefits. Insects are "extremely efficient" in converting feed into edible meat, the agency said. On average, they can convert 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of feed into 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of insect mass. In comparison, cattle require 8 kilograms (17.6 pounds) of feed to produce a kilo of meat. Most insects are likely to produce fewer environmentally harmful greenhouse gases, and also feed on human and food waste, compost and animal slurry, with the products being used for agricultural feed, the agency said. The agency noted that its Edible Insect Program is also examining the potential of arachnids, such as spiders and scorpions, although they are not strictly speaking insects...more
