Skip to comments.White House looks to regulate cow flatulence as part of climate agenda
Posted on 03/30/2014 12:00:54 PM PDT by yoe
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 countrys greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion 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.

Human vegetarians produce a lot of methane, too.
Why not? It regulates nearly everything else.
surely they are moving to control the food supply
Duct taping the LIAR in chiefs mouth would have a more profound effect.
There is no sanity left in this administration....What are they going to propose??? Fart sacks for cattle???
You got to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!
The EPA is taking on Pootin’!
So now federal regulators are going to visit dairy farms, to assess how much gas is produced?????
Can I ask a stupid question? If domestic cattle are aggravating global warming, isn’t it quite possible that various wild animals are also doing so? But, the PETA types would be aghast at any efforts to control wild animal populations, wouldn’t they?
This has got to be a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So Obummer is going to tell the dairy farmers to stop their cows from pooping. What Obummer needs to do is to stop his own pooping.
We should have a vegetarian tax, like the carbon tax, to help regulate methane emissions.
The White House interprets the cow flatulence as competition.
And there you go, a problem solved.
I wonder whose patent is involved?
My big fat hound dog is probably on the list for disposal too. (Mr Ditter is in danger, I feel sure) :[
This means bears can’t sh*t in the woods anymore........
Thankfully, my pet, Moses, does not poot. He is an African Grey parrot.
All I want out of this is to meet the guy who can carry that sized bottle of Tums out to the herd.
The only pet to be allowed will be a “pet rock”....
We have some pretty smart FReeper engineers. Mayhap they can design a ‘cattle gas capture/converter’ for a power source.
You can also ride cattle - which is more than you can do with windmills.
Stop feeding him beans and/or lentils!
When the White House wants to regulate COW FARTS with the rest of this country's problems being pushed to the back burner, THAT is how we know we live in a country run by IDIOTS!
Doesn't matter, Obama's bestest friend forever Warren Buffet probably has the corner in the market for COW FARTS.
I’ll bet Mooch-elle is going to take this personally. Where is she going to flatulate now?
Exactly. To meet the goals of Agenda 21 they must rid the country of millions of people. Starvation is a preferred socialist genocidal method: it worked well for Stalin in Ukraine back in the early '30s.
Put a regulator on Mooooooo-chelle’s a$$ and heat the white house.
bingo! No more beans, the solution to the problem! :)
Oh dear, what about bean farmers? This is a very convoluted problem.
Cow farts sound so funny. People hear this sort of stuff and just kind of roll their eyes.
It’s funny like a heart attack. These are the students of Mao and Stalin. This about food.
TOTUS meet bus.
I guess this means that the Obama Administration has given up on winning the votes of Bovine Americans.
Why only cows?
The political activists want to control the food supply. It's a central goal.
Ironic, really -- Bertoldt Brecht wrote the Threepenny Opera which contains a bit called "What Keeps Mankind Alive". It's an explanation that any talk of morality is totally wasted until you provide food to the masses. Solve the food problem, Brecht said, that's the first thing. (He was a communist.) After you provide for people, then -- maybe -- you can expect them to behave in a genteel and moral manner.
Your more modern communists have thrown such old thoughts out the window. Grab control of the food, Threaten the people with starvation. Turn them all into slaves or starve them if they resist. Marxism is essentially a more brutal form of feudalism.
The gullible old communists (like Brecht) actually thought there were good intentions behind all the philosophy. He was wrong.
Agenda 21 at your service. This is the obozo administration’s / democrat’s plan for dairies and livestock producers to go the way of the health industry, to kill them.
“This has got to be a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Nah, they’re trying to figure out a way to “capture” Mooche’s “outgassing.”
“I wonder whose patent is involved? “
Can you say Solyndra? Patent holder will likely be a major campaign contributor to FUBO who will go bankrupt after swilling down $500k.
But, first let's start with the emissions that come from DC!
Finally — a national crisis worthy of the unique talents of this administration.
“” FART SACKS””
Don’t give them any ideas!!
That's exactly it.
This is beyond absurd. Farts (or flatulence if one is proper) are a natural bodily function and yet the WH wants to regulate? Makes no difference if it is cow or man. Eat—>fart. Soon they will find a way to regulate (aka TAX) us for the CO2 released with each expiration.
Mao used it too
“Human vegetarians produce a lot of methane, too.”
Make every vege install an igniter on their ass!
