Pig 1: “Look guys
If we keep a low profile
All the heat will be on the cows”
Pig 2: “Methane producing flatulants!”
Pig 3: “I thought they were ruminants?”
Pig 1: “No, that’s the owls.
They do all the thinking.”
n.b. The methane producing capacity of cows is not as serious as it has been promoted, so I understand.
The whole question of climate change and bovine methane output is a distraction from the generation of air pollution from motor vehicles. The carcinogenic properties of diesel smuts have been masked for years. Turning attention to farm animals and the farming industry takes focus from burning fossil fuels. I am not saying agriculture is perfect, but when it comes to poisonous gas production we have to look at automobiles, aircraft and shipping.
Who started this? Where did the media get the story about cattle and methane? Who funded the ‘studies’?
