Climate Alarmists Propose Feeding Cows
Seaweed to Reduce Methane in Farts

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 10/28/2019 1:24:26 AM

Environmentalists 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, an 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.

Maybe this is a also a test about the future feeding of the masses under socialism: grubs, grasshoppers, algae and seaweed. Sadly not a stretch.

Not mentioned is the milk and meat production effect of this diet. Methane makes up .00017% of the atmosphere compared to CO2 which makes up .039% and water vapor which makes up from .2% to 4% of the atmosphere. Water vapor is a larger contributor to temperatures but do varying temperatures cause the variation in water vapor percentages or vice versa, I am never really sure. This would be a great project for the warmists to pursue.

Seaweed serves a great purpose right where it is. It puts oxygen into the seawater. Start harvesting it and you will damage the environment.

How about every cow wears a little backpack, a methane collection device with a tube leading to, ahem, the source. Periodically someone could go collect it to power a hybrid car. Better yet, strap a cow to the top of each hybrid car.

As always, there's a downside. FTA: 'While flatulence is an issue, studies have suggested that cow belching is a much bigger problem because of the methane produced in cows’ stomachs. “Despite misconceptions, most cow methane comes from burps (90%) rather than farts (10%),” Back to the drawing board.

But, but seaweed is contaminated with waste from the Japanese nuclear accident -- with more nuclear waste being added just recently when the bags it was stored in were swept out to sea (shouldn't those bags have been stored more, um, carefully?). Surely the enviros must be aware that seaweed and fish are no longer fit for human or cow consumption?

I still advocate for picking on other animals, not just cows! Not fair! And #22, not only do "them city slickers" not know one end of a cow from the other, they also don't know what constitutes a "cow" vs. a "bull" (and we won't even get into heifers and steers). True story: My college roommate's "cowboy" boyfriend told her that a cow decoration had to be a bull because it had horns and "only bulls have horns." I laughed long and hard at that one and then told him, "Hey, 'cowboy,' that's the wrong end of the animal to be looking at to determine its sex!"

With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi looking to regain control of the news cycle after the announcement Sunday from President Donald Trump that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed, the president was joined by first lady Melania Trump Monday evening to celebrate their third Halloween at the White House. Against the backdrop of Pelosi announcing that the House will vote this week on a resolution to formalize and establish the parameters of their partisan impeachment inquiry — in effect, to legitimize an inquisition that was already underway — the first couple handed out commemorative candy to tiny dragons, ghouls, ghosts, and other creepy-crawly creatures.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly mulling over a return to politics and may be seeking to regain his old Senate seat in Alabama. The former Republican lawmaker may be seriously considering regaining the seat won by Democratic Sen. Doug Jones in a special election in 2017, Republican sources with knowledge of the situation said, according to Associated Press. Sessions has reportedly made some phone calls about the possible bid for his old seat, according to the anonymous sources.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., may want to chalk up her ongoing drop in the polls to a prejudice nation, but the real reason she’s sinking like a rock may be found in a petty, even pretentious response to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night,” Harris scolded President Donald Trump for his “extraordinary” press conference announcing the success of the mission, saying he acted like he was commenting on a video game. (Pettiness aside, it didn’t seem to appear to her campaign that the optics alone made Harris look oh, so small.)

O’Rourke said, “I think it would make sense for the president to congratulate those service members and the canine…but also, some have made the case, and it’s very compelling to me, that this raid was successful in spite of, or despite the president, not because of him.

A Washington Post obituary referring to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an 'austere religious scholar' after the ISIS mastermind was killed in a US military strike has sparked a deluge of death tribute parodies on Twitter. The newspaper came under fire on Sunday after it changed the headline on al-Baghdadi's obituary two times - first calling him 'terrorist-in-chief', followed by 'austere religious leader at the helm of ISIS' and finally 'extremist leader'. Twitter users seized on the second iteration, accusing The Post of painting al-Baghdadi in an inappropriately positive light given the brutality he championed while leading the terrorist organization.
