White House Looks to Regulate Cow Flatulence As Part of Climate Agenda

Cow Fart Cartoon

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.”

“Of all domestic animal types, beef and dairy cattle were by far the largest  emitters of [methane],” according to an EPA analysis charting greenhouse  gas emissions in .... Cows and other animals produce methane through  digestion, which ferments the food of animals.

“During digestion, microbes resident in an animal’s digestive system ferment  food consumed by the animal,” the EPA notes. “This microbial fermentation  process, referred to as enteric fermentation, produces [methane] as a byproduct,  which can be exhaled or eructated by the animal.”

It’s not just the dairy industry that the Obama administration is clamping  down on. The White House is looking  to regulate methane emissions across the economy from agriculture to oil and gas  operations — all this despite methane emissions falling 11 percent since  1990.

Methane emissions have largely been reduced because of the incentive for companies to capture  it and sell it for monetary gain. Oil and gas companies, for example, have been  looking for ways to increasingly capture methane leaked from drilling operations  which they can then sell.

“The industry has led efforts to reduce emissions of methane by developing  new technologies and  equipment, and recent studies show emissions are far lower than EPA projected  just a few years ago,” said  Howard Feldman, head of scientific and  regulatory affairs at  the American Petroleum Institute. “Additional  regulations are not necessary and could have a chilling effect on the American  energy renaissance, our economy, and our national security.”

I guess in barack hussein obama' thinking that back when the US government allowed & helped in the almost extinction of the bison (buffalo's) was a good idea. How about camels, deer & humans. How about a fart bag stuck in our rear end to capture our farts & sell then for profit. A bean diet for all Americans.

Wait it ain't over yet!

Social justice among the dairy cows will be next. Someone will inform this nutjob that not all cows give the same amount of milk. Then comes the race card, and he will demand all cows produce the same regardless of breed.

LOL

electric cows and plastic burgers... if we don't like it, we may smoke (or eat) grass ...Soylent Green, it's comin'.

flatulence is PC for farting, flattery between farts ...that's why they want to reduce cow farts, they only need a few farts to flatter us all.

Headin down the road to DC on my Harley E Glide come May 16.......  Flatchalater !!!

Thank you to both you and Judy, I to have been riding for over 50 years, both street and dirt. I rode dist. 36 enduro's  in California for 15 yrs. to old now ! but I still love watching the youngsters ! I have 6 children 1 son and 5 daughters and a bunch of grandkids and they all ride dirt. I still have a KTM 525 EXC But I don't ride it much anymore, I had a pretty bad get off a couple of years ago on a Moto track, although the broken shoulder and the three broken ribs have long since healed, my kids say that my head is still questionable ? I'm looking forward to the DC ride and more importantly being there with all those patriots, I know you will keep informed on the event as it takes place, but I will also keep you informed as to my experience when I return. Again thanks to you both.

Man Michael, besides a mustang that sure is the most fun way to get there, I'll see ya there on the 19th even if I have to go through the TSA.

This is just another excuse from Crazy land to move O's plan to starve the people out. They won't want the peasants eating meat or drinking milk. That will be reserved for the "Nobility"; and I think we all know who that is. Just another part of Agenda 21. Yes, we will all look forward to receiving our "Nutrition Cubes" twice a day, given to us from the government's browns shirts in our fenced in Fema camps.

Here we go again !!!!!!!!!!  Another much needed fed. gov. agency, that is going to spend billions on research,  development and to regulate "COW FARTS" ?!?!?!  These people have got their heads so far up their ass that their oxygen intake has to be zero, and that would explain the thought process of these idiots !  I would bet  the backers of "GAS-EX" have started already ! We stand a much better chance of surviving the "ATTACK OF THE FLATULATORS" ! Than we do surviving "THE ATTACK OF THE REGULATORS" !........... What a bunch of bull s__t !!  I mean cow gas !

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
