The progressives’ wealthy eco-contingent has been growing increasingly displeased with the Obama administration and their relatively mild efforts to temper global warming via executive action revealed in their Climate Action Plan announced last summer — namely, the administration’s refusal to more quickly squelch the fossil-fuel industry and more rapidly bring about those “necessarily skyrocketing” energy prices about which President Obama once spoke so dreamily.

Um, I'm thinking the uber rich ain't too worried about energy prices skyrocketing since they (some) have plenty of money to pay for their power to their 10,000 sq ft+ abodes. As far as the methane, congress better be concerned about all the foul air they're creating.

They are determined the ‘rest of us’ will eat a low protein vegan diet. Whether we like it or not. We will simply not be able to afford meat or dairy. Only the elites will eat cheese or steak.

First they take away our ability to exhale (CO2). Now they are going to make it illegal to pass gas too (methane)?

Are they planning to make corks for cows now? Controlling methane is NOT going to happen.

“Nuke the EPA.”

Words to live for. :-)

The EPA’s message to the proletariat is “no more steak for you”

Bingo. Since they are getting away with regulating carbon and carbon dioxide, they are going after the rest of their wish list. Oxygen might have been too obvious to regulate, btw. But I am sure it is on their list. Prediction: nitrogen is next.

All cows will have to wear ‘fart collectors’ .... sort of like catalytic converters are used to control emissions. Monthly inspections will be required to certify the collectors are working properly. What will be done with the methane in the collectors is still undetermined, but CGI is working on a resolution to this back end problem.

When is the EPA going to start shooting people for expelling CO2 gas?

Maybe that is why all these gov agencies are buying ammo....

For the environment...

Forget cow tipping...

Put a lit candle on 20ft pole with a spike on the tip and the candle a few inches from the spike.

Call it "Cow Lighting"
