#1 Scientists Collect Cow Toots To Better Understand Their Effects On Global Warming...07-17-2008, 01:29 AM
Argentinian scientists are collecting cow gas in an effort to understand how the methane produced by our bovine brethren is affecting the global solar cooker we call earth and its atmosphere.
As one of the world's biggest beef producers, Argentina has more than 55 million cows grazing in its famed Pampas grasslands.
Guillermo Berra, a researcher at the National Institute of Agricultural Technology, said every cow produces between 800 to 1,000 liters of emissions every day.
Methane, which is also released from landfills, coal mines and leaking gas pipes, is 23 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
You just can't make this stuff up!!! :D

Looks like another one of those DUmmie experiments.I'd rather have a daughter in a whorehouse than a son in the University of Texas.

I feel bad for the cow in the picture. Like riding in the bed of a pick-up: No way you can look cool.At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
