Like the back country mechanic said with a gleam in his eye...

There's yer problem!


That's a lot of trash...huh? All of it emitting methane...every second of every day...in piles created in every community of size on Earth for sources which have never before existed on our planet.

Cow farts? Flatulence is what I think of that focus, anyway... lol

I think the carbon taxes will cover the sunshine mitigation efforts....


Oh yeah the infamous carbon tax.

Just shell out a boatload of fiat currency to 'offset' pollution.

Which means they can pollute more.

'I don't care' about people because I don't support government fascism.
You seemed to be complaining about various forms of government aid.


Yeah since it is the topic.

The topic is about government and it's shills like in the White House.

Posters aren't.

When fascism comes to America it wil be wrapped in the gleeful cheers of we must give up the little freedoms we have left, under the false delusion it's to 'save the planet'.

Freedoms like #ting in our own nest.
Got it.


LOL. Appropriate and awesome, Phage. Quoted for truth.

God bless America.



Guberment regulations at work.

That's just it. The title is wrong. The concern is not cow farts. The concern is this:

When large amounts of it collect and ferment, it produces a lot of methane. A solution is the approach suggested by the White House:

Similar to what is done with landfills.

The idea is that it would be more cost effective over time to reduce emissions by adding filters, upgrading machines for more efficiency, etc. Corporations do understand profit loss and cost reduction more than anything. Its a pretty sensible plan that will stimulate innovation and green technology development. Its a good plan. of course any sort of change from the old model will meet resistance, but the end game will be a cleaner more effective world.
Imagine a world for a brief moment where advanced cheap solar panels were the norm for people and business..where oil was little more than a lubricant and plastic goods material and not burned to fuel stuff

If the west is forced to clean up their act, the west will also then by default necessity become the leader in advanced green tech...tech leaders will be the world leaders tomorrow...so cleaning up our act, even if china isn't, will give the west the power down the road.

Got to think long term..we are simply renting out this planet for a little bit of time..borrowing it really. we are making the beds that our grandchildren and their grandchildren will lay in.

Indeed, we here in Eugene, Or have been using methane from dump for 20 years now.


The first phase became operational in 1992. The second phase expansion started up in 1993. The project's total cost was $2.6 million. It generates about 15 million kilowatt hours (kWh) and approximately 2.5 average megawatts (MW) annually. This is the equivalent of nearly 33,000 barrels of oil per year. It provides enough electricity to power about 1,000 homes. The project paid for itself in about seven years. Since the Short Mountain Landfill is an operating landfill and plans to accept refuse for many years into the future, this project will continue to produce electricity for about another 20 years.

It has been an efficient set up, as the rest of the article reveals.

What a joke.

The US government clearly doesn't understand it's own destructive actions.

The 'sensiblity' here is to continue to limit the power of those morons in DC.

So now you are saying that pollution is an imaginary problem? It's some made up "hobgoblin"? Do we need to repeat the word "Beijing" again? You know, that place you don't care about, where you say the "imaginary pollution" is being moved to, due to regulations in America? Is it me, or are there some inconsistencies in your argument?

So when "conservatives" are in government, are they not by definition, shills of the government?

I always wondered why conservatives are so interested in populating government with conservatives, because the conservatives are essentially becoming shills for the government.

I always wondered why someone how hates the government would be so hell bent on becoming a part of that government. Then when the conservatives become a part of the government, what do they do?

The take tax payer money, the create laws, regulations and a whole myriad of things that can only be described as growing the government.

THESE are the real question conservatives should be tackling.

Fight the shills of the government! By hiring our own shills for the government!

Guess not.

So here is one for the record.

How is a government that does that a good 'steward' of the planet ?

What I am saying is that far too many people just go along with whatever they say.

Oh my god people are killing the planet. Government has to do something!

Oh my god the evil bankers! Government has to make them nicer !

Oh my god them evil guns ! Government has to do 'something' !.

It really is getting tiresome of people twisting my posts for what ever reason.

By passing laws to prevent such things from happening.

It was a bad idea (though, arguably necessary). Good idea to stop doing it.

What the hell does that have to do with the topic ?

Except when conservatives are running the 'show' that is when government has too much power.

Conservatives were pushing global warming there would be 'alot' less people for it.

They would be the ones going around shouting 'fascists'!

They would be the ones shouting 'What about the free market' !

They would be the ones shouting 'what about the GD personal liberty' !.

Turns out the so called 'liberals' are astoundingly silent.

Dont understand the critic here


Is flatulence good? Have you ever being in a train or bus when the guy next to you farts? Specially in a hangover morning? Well for me, at that time the death penalty would be very kind
, so, why to complain about a tax? The money will benefit us all, but, of course that's never, never stop the devious farts
