White House looks to regulate cow flatulence as part of climate agenda
As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations.

This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990.

The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas.

Some of these methane emissions come from cow flatulence, exhaling and belching — other livestock animals release methane as well.

“Cows emit a massive amount of methane through belching, with a lesser amount through flatulence,” according to How Stuff Works. “Statistics vary regarding how much methane the average dairy cow expels. Some experts say 100 liters to 200 liters a day… while others say it’s up to 500 liters… a day. In any case, that’s a lot of methane, an amount comparable to the pollution produced by a car in a day.”

    Dairy Farmers have been targeted for years. It started under Clinton and regulations get tightened all the time. In spite of the claim in the article, the EPA is going after manure storage and not the methane produced by the cows by natural acts.

    This same BS made the news about 10 years ago.

    This just released from the White House:
    Barry will solve unemployment by putting people to work following cows with lighters.

    And yes, they will be union jobs;

    It is a voluntary program to get dairies to use methane digesters, which take manure and turn it into energy. Some Dairies already use them.

    The last time it was a U.N. report and there was discussions on taxing cow farts

    Unless there is some new technology out there, except modifying feed stock, there isn't any way to control a cow releasing gas or capturing it.

    I knew the BS started under Clinton, was not aware it was part of Agenda 21. It makes sense though.

    It was actually signed by Bush senior. The difference of republicans and democrats is just to keep us divided.

    As ive said before.... CO2 is dead.... methane is the new target. Colorado just put out their first set of methane restrictions.

    Simply continue to develop pesky agriculture lands. Do away with the Florida Conservation Corridor and it's string of agricultural "working" lands. Remove cattle from the landscape,add cars and rooftops. Vegans et al will celebrate.Don't laugh- the anti cattle narrative has been entrenched for years among some enviro ethos. Even "Smart Growth" concept could be employed.

    If American leadership would have just set a proper cow-fart example for the rest of the world, this might not have happened;


    Farting Cows Make Barn Explode In Germany

    BERLIN (AP) — A herd of dairy cows nearly lifted the roof off their barn in central Germany when methane released by the animals caused an explosion.

    Police in Hesse state said in a statement that a static electric charge apparently triggered the detonation, and a spurt of flame, on Monday at a farm in Rasdorf. The roof was slightly damaged and one cow suffered light burns. No people were hurt.

    Police say 90 cows are kept in the shed and it wasn't clear why quantities of methane had built up. Bovine belching and flatulence releases large quantities of the gas.
