Climate Alarmists Propose Feeding Cows Seaweed To Lower Methane In Farts

cows livestock beef cattleEnvironmentalists intent on finding new ways to reduce so-called greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change have proposed a novel method: feed cows seaweed to diminish methane in flatulence, belches, and manure.

Ermias Kebreab, a zoology professor at the University of California–Davis, led a team in producing a bovine meal regimen containing varying levels of Asparagopsis armata, a strain of red seaweed, and fed it to 12 dairy cows over a two-month period.

In a mix containing just 1 percent seaweed, the cows’ methane emissions went down by a stunning 60 percent.

To elaborate:

A man farts in the woods, and there is no woman around to hear it... Is it still a fart?

Why yes! Yes it is.

I rest my case.

Did the cows grow gills or fins?

LOL!

No lie... I have a deaf friend who knows I farted from the rumble he picks up from the floor. For a while there, he almost had me convinced he could detect the change in air pressure.

More importantly, What's going to eat the dang grass? Grass fires anyone?

Ahh. Seaweed supplement. We did that with the cows for a while..
I don't remember any grand reduction in flatulence. I don't remember it doing much of anything at all.

The whole thing is ridiculous. Just about every grass eater farts like the barber's cat. It's what they do.
