Preventing deadly cow emissions
Like many officials, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is out to help protect the environment by putting the brakes to auto emissions.
According to the BBC television new report I saw the other night, it looks like he's barking up the wrong tree ... er ... or, chewing the wrong cud.
No, the BBC says, methane (in Brit talk, pronounced MEE-thane), coming from emission points at both the front and back ends of bovines, is responsible for an enormous amount of global air pollution/global warming.
Not even cattle can stand the stench.
British scientists are hard at work on a solution to this problem. In hi-tech laboratories, they are sequestering test cows in air-tight quarters, and trying different feeds on them. Then, dressed in hazmat-white suits, technicians go in and measure bovine methane output, to determine which feed produces the lowest emission rate.
What a job to list on a resumé!
I wonder if they have tried dosing the cows with Beano.
