White House looks to regulate cow flatulence as part of climate agenda
The Daily Caller ^ | March 28,2014 | MICHAEL BASTASCH

Posted on 03/28/2014 6:45:40 PM PDT by Hojczyk

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations.

This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990.

The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeableportion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas.

Some of these methane emissions come from cow flatulence, exhaling and belching — other livestock animals release methane as well.

“Cows emit a massive amount of methane through belching, with a lesser amount through flatulence,” according to How Stuff Works. “Statistics vary regarding how much methane the average dairy cow expels. Some experts say 100 liters to 200 liters a day… while others say it’s up to 500 liters… a day. In any case, that’s a lot of methane, an amount comparable to the pollution produced by a car in a day.”

Let’s see, beef rib steak at $245.00 a pound, leg of lamb $545.00 a pound, eggs $70.00 each, milk $75.00 a gallon and pork unavailable. Yeah, that should do it.

White House eyes new regulations to cut methane from oil, gas sector (In REGS Ve TRvst)

Yahoo! News ^ | 3/28/14 | Roberta Rampton and Timothy Gardner - Reuters
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Friday it will take a hard look at whether new regulations are needed to cut emissions of methane from the oil and gas industry, part of President Barack Obama’s plan to address climate change. Regulators will start by proposing new rules later this year to reduce venting and flaring from oil and gas wells on public lands, one way to begin slashing emissions of the potent greenhouse gas, said Dan Utech, Obama’s top energy and climate aide. Most oil and gas production takes place on privately owned land. The Environmental Protection Agency...

Somebody should regulate the White House since it is so full of crap that it reeks of Methane, CO2 and just plain bloviating (not just Bovine) hot air.

It stinks so badly at 1600 Pa. that the Roto-Rotor Man won’t even go there.

I wonder if they are allowed to smoke in there?

And what about the flatulence that comes out of that BIG behind that follows MooseShell where ever she goes? Time to do something about that flatulence that causes Gorebull Warming. And especially all that comes from her many ‘diplomatic trips’ to such places as China and her many ‘vacations’ at taxpayer (yours and mine) expense. May she be recompensed for all of her evil...

I am laughing so hard I can hardly type. BUT, on a more serious note. Cow flatulence should be at it's lowest since 1953. There are fewer cattle on the ground than since that date. We are seeing it in the grocery stores. It is going to get worse. Fertilizer is up, hay is almost non-existent, farmers can't make a living and are selling their breeding stock. What we need is MORE cow flatulence. That means more cattle in the food chain.

These idiots need to get a life. What they know about cows could be written on thr POINT of a pen, much less the head. Hell, what they know about ANYTHING could be written on the head of a pin with room left for a weekend camp out.

I’ve got a great idea. We exterminate all predatory mammals (Grizzly Bears, Wolves, and Mountain Lions) and then vastly increase the number of Deer and Elk harvesting tags given out. We also put an unlimited year round harvest on feral pigs. These things will all be considered (Carbon Offsets) and be tax deductible. Win, Win Win all around!

I have a better idea. Why don’t they all just shut the heck up and reduce their CO2 emissions?

We know according to them they don’t crap or it doesn’t smell.

We can laugh about this till the cows come home (HAH!), but once it's a regulation or law, we're stuck with it until we decide to run these asshats out of town.

So, it's going to simply make beef prices go through the roof even more than they already have. Hard to laugh at that, IMO.
