California To Regulate Cow Farts?

These fucking people are too stupid to tie their own shoelaces.

California regulates cow farts

GALT, Calif. (AP) — California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm.

The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock.

Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.

Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure.

"If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming," said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report.

Since the passage of its landmark global warming law in 2006, California has been reducing carbon emissions from cars, trucks, homes and factories, while boosting production of renewable energy.

In the nation's largest milk-producing state, the new law aims to reduce methane emissions from dairies and livestock operations to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030, McCarthy said. State officials are developing the regulations, which take effect in 2024.

"We expect that this package ... and everything we're doing on climate, does show an effective model forward for others," McCarthy said.

Sniff sniff, is that a fart or a giant money making opportunity that I smell?

Well now I know why capital building have Domes. They are bio digesters seems WE THE PEOPLE have been filling them with SHIT for over a century. I would pay to watch Brown stick a gage in a cows ass and see what would happen next.

by their own admission, total human contribution to global greenhouse gas(including food production) is .01 to .05 of 1%. the rest is earth generated. so, 14% of .01 to .05 of 1% is how much? it's so fucking small as to require more "greenhouse gas" to reduce it than it creates. classic liberal insanity.

next: be required to bring in your cow to an emission test center

and if it don't pass, take it to a cow shop to be retuned

why not pass same requirement for government leaders?

ah " the land of fruits and nuts" does it again!

nuke them.....
