I smell a conspiracy.
Always remember that when you pass through a fart you are inhaling aerosol shiat.

It certainly isn't helping. But our human populations are out of control and need to eat.

This should be worrying, too. Probably isn't for most people, but methane is bad for you, mkay? And a lot of it has been trapped in the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field Siberia.

And as the tundra thaws, due to climate change, these bubbles are forming. And collapsing.

So republicans were right... it's not humans causing global warming, it's animals. Chessmate, libtardos.

I'm more worried about flying cows...

Farts are serious business.
 
2017-09-29 05:25:36 PM  
We can get rid of this problem by killing and eating them.

I have a bridge for sale, etc. etc.
These people have inhaled way too much barium from the chemtrails.

Imagine how much dinosaurs farted.   Explains earlier warming.  I knew it wasn't man made.

Farts.
Can't live with 'em.
Can't live without 'em.

Of course - why hasn't anyone invented a way to capture this methane?  There has to, at least, be enough produced to power a generator.
 
2017-09-29 05:33:55 PM  
I wonder how the cow population in the USA compares to the former bison population. I'm guessing that they are much the same.

Yet another case of hyper-alarmist rants, journalistic fear mongering. But of course, I didn't click the link. I'll come back and correct myself if I am wrong about this.

That's it.  I'm gonna start eating the biatches

I was driving through Greeley, CO yesterday, and can vouch for cow emissions.

In addition to livestock contributing to the release of methane, let's not forget that fake climate change resulting in the melting of glaciers, permafrost* and icecaps is also releasing ancient methane (and God knows what else) into the atmosphere.

*there's some scary ancient viruses that are seeing the light of day with the melting of the permafrost, some hat haven't been seen in thousands of years.

I'd the earth's environment that sparse pockets of cows are able to turn the tide of global climate change, we're in a lot bigger trouble than we realize.

We might as well use up all the oil and trash the place because fighting the climate is futile.

Wait, isn't SpaceX going to be using methane and liquid oxygen as rocket fuel? Just insert a collection pipe into the source of the methane and...to the moon, Alice!

We've known for a while that a meat based diet contributes to greenhouse gasses more than transportation or industry.  And it's dumb that we keep ignoring the real problems.  Go meatless 3 days a week before your next spittle flying rant about someone else who should be solving the problem for you.

There's a farm called Misery, but of that we'll have none,
Because we know of one, that's always lots of fun (Ha ha!).
And this one's name is Jollity; believe me, folks, it's great,
For everything sings out to us as we go through the gate.

Knitted ones. It's part of the Trump Plan to Preserve the Permafrost, and he's recruited lots of old pink MAGA-hate wearing biddies in the midwest to do it, too.

If most Americans went meatless once or twice a week and ate more beans* and vegetables, our impact on GW would likely decrease.

/* even accounting for the increase in farting caused by eating more beans and lentils

I disagree... "MAGA-hate wearing" read just fine... I didn't even blink at it.

So hang bells from their necks and pilot lights from their asses.  Problem solved.
 
2017-09-29 06:01:50 PM  
So in order to reduce bovine emissions we need to reduce the number of bovines. Therefore, everyone needs to eat burgers and steaks, like right now.
 
2017-09-29 06:02:09 PM  
This is a red herring.

Methane from livestock has zero impact on climate change. Methane in the atmosphere only last a few years before breaking down into CO2. Carbon moving back and forth between atmospheric CO2 -> carbohydrates in plants -> methane -> atmospheric CO2 has no impact.

Digging up more entombed carbon and adding it to the cycle DOES have an impact.

I would sooner murder every soul in some faraway country that I will never go to than give up eating red meat. I love beans, but they are not steak.

Also, our climate models were grossly inaccurate, but they're good now so you should believe them.
