Which emissions are worse?: Cows vs. Keystone Pipeline

Recommended Posts

For Climate Alarmists, both cows and oil are bad.  Since I grew up on a dairy farm with 50 cows and I strongly support oil & gas, clearly I am a special kind of evil.  Bwahahahahaha

Farmers to feed cows seaweed to cut down on gas emissions

About a quarter of the methane in the country comes from cattle, which produce the gas when they belch or flatulate

WSJ senior energy reporter Russell Gold weighs in on the Keystone Pipeline, fracking and livestock’s impact on the environment.

FREEPORT, Maine (AP) -- Coastal Maine has a lot of seaweed, and a fair number of cows. A group of scientists and farmers think that pairing the two could help unlock a way to cope with a warming world.

The researchers -- from a marine science lab, an agriculture center and universities in northern New England -- are working on a plan to feed seaweed to cows to gauge whether that can help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

About a quarter of the methane in the country comes from cattle, which produce the gas when they belch or flatulate.

The concept of feeding seaweed to cows has gained traction in recent years because of some studies that have shown its potential to cut back on methane. The reduction might be because the seaweed interrupts the process of production of the gas in the animals' guts.

One of the big questions is which kinds of seaweed offer the highest benefit to farmers looking to cut methane, and the researchers hope to find out, said Nichole Price, a senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay, Maine, and the project's leader.  ...

Please, let's keep to science!

Cows have multiple stomachs, regurgitate gallons of methane, but fart very little. They are dangerous!

Dinosaurs are said to have had multiple stomachs as well. Can you imagine the amount of methane they could burp?

It has been postulated that the methane rising in the Arctic Ice Circle and the GOM is from all those dinosaurs, burping yet. 

On the farm and ranch where I grew up, we didn't ponder this sort of thing. It was after I got old and foolish that it became mainstream.

Well the obvious solution is to lower the price of beef so we will eat more of it, ridding us of those pesky cow farts that are killing us all. Wait, that means that the ranchers will have even more cows on their lands so they can produce more beef for us to eat and more cow farts. No, no, no, we need to quit eating beef and put all those ranchers out of business. No, no, no, screw that, we need to corral all those tree hugging idiots up and stuff them in barns full of farting cows. They will expire and all of us will be able to go back to business. What they don't understand is those cows you see in the fields driving down the road are only there because they are happy! Barbed wire fences will not slow a cow down if they want to leave, they just walk through the fence and go about their merry way. We need to give the names and addresses of the tree huggers to the cows and they will take off and go find those losers and rid us of them. Death by cow farts will be the official report....

And how much methane has the Keystone Pipeline farted this year?

Sadly, Tom Kirkman still hasn't done his homework. The main difference between cows and oil rig is that cows do not introduce new carbon into the circulation - carbon that lied underground for millions of years. 

It's probably too late anyway - as long as shale drillers keep flaring natural gas and people keep driving SUVs to Walmart and back, the most sensible thing you can do is finding a good quality barbecue sauce and cover your body with a nice, thick layer - because you are the grilled steak of tomorrow. For a preview, look what almost 50 Celsius summer temperatures did to Australia this year.

Cowstone Pipeline might be a good solution for passing that gas.
