Cows Get Fart Charts

The enviro-wackos have been claiming cows contribute 20% worldwide to Global Warming. I guess It was only a matter of time before people were going to get paid to start charting cow farts. Toledo should take an active role in this important environmental initative. Just change COSI to COWSI and you got big buck Grant Money to Save the Planet.

Sweden to study belching cows

A Swedish university has received 3.8 million kronor ($590,000) in research funds to measure the greenhouse gases released when cows belch.

About 20 cows will participate in the project run by the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, about 40 miles north of Stockholm, officials said Monday.

Cattle release methane, a greenhouse gas believed to contribute to global warming, when they digest their food. Researchers believe the level of methane released depends on the type of food the eat.

Project leader Jan Bertilsson said that the cows involved in the study will have different diets and wear a collar device measuring the methane level in the air around them.

"This type of research is already being conducted in Canada so we will be in contact with Canadian agricultural researchers in the near future," he said.

The research will be funded by a grant from the government's Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning.

Emphatically, Yes! The world is flat... and here's proof. :-)

"Ours is the truth, the truth of the world's flatness, and ours is also the burden of proof."

love it.

The Earth accelerating in circular motion would behave no differently than would a car taking a corner: loose objects (humans and animals would act like loose change or a cup of coffee on the dashboard) would slide around, or be thrown off completely. There would be an apparent centrifugal force on everything. During the day, when things would be facing the sun and therefore on the inside of the "orbit", buildings would be crushed and humans beings squashed like grasshoppers in a centrifuge. And at night, when everything would be at the outside, trees and buildings would be ripped from the ground and flung into outer space, and humans wouldn't stand a chance... [which] make it nearly impossible to understand at all, let alone understand why anyone would believe such dribble [as a round, rotating earth].

[Crazy stuff, but it does make some kind of goofy sense.]

Haha...blaming cows. That's like blaming the trees for being deforested.

I saw a bumper sticker in Ann Arbor that said, "Meat Contributes to Global Warming, Become a Vegan." Only in Ann Arbor.
