Cows and their gas: Something stinks down on the farm (AP Photo)



By DINA CAPPIELLO



One contributor to global warming — bigger than coal mines, landfills and sewage treatment plants — is being left out of efforts by the Obama administration and House Democrats to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

BS. Sounds like marketing. Who doesn't feed their cattle alfalfa and grasses? I guess my dad can now advertise his beef cattle as environmentally burp friendly cattle, but I doubt it will change the price at OKC West Stockyards.

Not really that funny. Just an example of how foolish all global warming legislation is. It takes reaching the absurd before some notice though.

How about how Al Gore is making a money of this type of crap. Investing in Carbon credit companies.

Just another liberal preaching a gospel to make money off of it.

Pure marketing - smart marketing maybe - but pure marketing.

The article states that if every dairy used their methods they could reduce GHG emissions the equivalence of removing half a million cars from the road. Well, guess what? The EPA estimates that 30% of the energy used in this country is wasted, and if that figure were reduced to 20% wasted we could save the equivalent GHG of removing 30,000,000 autos from the road. That is more cars on the road than Texas, Ohio, Illinois, and New York COMBINED!

The "half million" sounds good, but it is a drop in the bucket. Marketing...

Well, I'm doing my part to reduce green house gases. I'm eating as many cows as I can!

Too many to name and really not worth my time to explain to a liberal with blinders. Enjoy the read.

Would be funny if livestock associations weren't having to spend money to prevent such BS. there are those that would have all of us be vegetarian, by the way the same groups that are after livestock production are after our hunting rights.

On a similar note the EPA was tryin gto pass some law that would place a limit on the dust that a combine could produce. I am confused, if we can't raise cows, and we can't combine soybeans what are we supposed to eat

I'm not sure why this is a concern. Polluting the environment and destroying the beauty of our country has been rewarded with handsome profits and little liability for decades. The only way to reduce pollution is to make it profitable to be environmentally sound. I hope that the potential for profit attracts large number of future millionaires into the business of reducing pollution.

Reducing pollution is fine. It is the intentions of those like Gore and his ilk that use it as a front for something else.

Not to mention the glaring hypocrisy of 'his ilk', and Algore himself. What a sleezy piece of garbage he has become. Makes the word "environmentalist" filthy.

WTF ARE YOU AFTER ALGORE???

Tom DeWeese writes an article that sheds some light. It is the 9th paragraph down. http://www.newswithviews.com/DeWeese/tom112.htm

"Global warming has been the most convenient threat upon which all of the rhetoric has been based. What it is really leading to is the creation of a new economy based on trading carbon credits. Such policy is really nothing more than a massive redistribution of the wealth scheme designed to force industrial nations to make deals with less developed ones to trade for energy credits and get around severe energy use restrictions. It's what Al Gore trades in order to allow him to claim he has a "zero carbon footprint" - even as he flies around the world in his jets and pays $2000 electric bills on his Tennessee mansion. In the end, the same emissions are released into the atmosphere, but money and power exchanges hands from the industrial nations to the less developed. Where is the protection for the environment? Of course there isn't any."
