Probably not as much as cow farts because the number of camels is much less than the number of cows.

May the farts of a thousand camels waft into your yurt.

May the fleas of a million yaks take refuge in your Underoos.

May the grit of a million dunes seek haven under your foreskin.

Oh yeah, well your harem was ululating up all over my parapets last night.

What about bunny farts?  Those cute little bastards are probably to blame.  And my little sister, too.  She's a walking Bhopal disaster.

sorry sis.

That's about as much time as I want to consider it, thanks, subby.

No because that will insult muslims and Fartbongo can't do that

Pet peeve.

Amount goes with less.
Number goes with fewer.

No, because global warming does not happen, is 100% mythical and fraudulent, and anyone who thinks it's real is a big dumb stupid Liberal poopie-head.

What about moose farts? They must be ear-splitting and quite the knockout.

No, but it seems like a camel farting in the desert would raise oil prices with as volatile as it can be sometimes.

I think we need to study queefs next. I'll volunteer to be a queef inducer.

So they tested camels from Australia? I had no idea they had those down there.

Also, any reason to post this picture

You walk around with an apricot pit shoved up your vajayjay and see what happens to your digestive tract. It's hard out there on a dromedary.

Having not read the article I am going to guess:

1) Yes.

2) Not much.

Farting is carbon neutral.

Don't be so presumptuous subby. I've actually dedicated my life to camel farts. Well that and monkeys.

We had camels in Arizona for a long time. Supposedly, there was a big red male that lived for decades, running around looking for a mate or a buddy. None to be found.

I think I read some where that kangaroo guts do not contain methane-producing bacteria. So I see no reason why camels might not be methane-free.

Not CO2 free, of course. Or water-free. But the point is moot.

I go read now.

And this is why this is a study worth performing. We have a good grasp on most of the carbon and methane cycle, but we can reduce the error bars the more we know. Plus, there are some movements afoot to try to move to camel meat and milk as a more environmentally friendly substitute for cows. If they produce as much methane as cows, or less methane but more on a pound of meat/liter of milk basis, it's not worth it.

Only if the camels are hot to begin with... And usually their toes turn me off.

I know. Pretty sad, especially if you believe the stories about his cargo...

Meh, all the camel farts in the world wouldn't equal the flatulence of just one chili cookoff.

Always wondered why the guy just didn't ride a mile on a camel to get to the camel. Must be the farts.

They call that biogas now.  You just gotta suck the farts up and use for energy!
 
2014-04-10 01:45:53 PM
More toe, less farts.

You could combine both of those and it wouldn't anywhere near people farts. Remember, global warming is caused by man.

Ned Stark: Farting is carbon neutral.


It might be carbon neutral but methane is about 1000x more IR-active than CO2 so converting CO2 to CH4 would actually make things worse - although it's obviously very dependent on just how much CO2 is being converted to CH4.

/That's assuming I've remembered the relative numbers correctly too

Maybe the Sahara and Australia is filled with vast herds of camels, all hiding.  Soon...
