Cows That Burp Less Aid Climate Fight (Global Warming)

Manners aside, getting cows to burp less can help reduce global warming.

Using modern plant-breeding methods to find new diets for cows that make them belch less is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scientists said on Monday.

The key is developing new varieties of food that are easier for cattle to digest and also provide a proper balance of fiber, protein and sugar, said Michael Abberton, a scientist at the UK-based Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research.

Hmmmmmm............. I guess we could focus on silly things like alternative energies, hydrogen cars, greenhouse gas emission reductions. Why though? We can genetically alter foods so that cows burp less! Wow, that's amazing! Unbelievably great use of funds!

This is so ridiculous that is not funny, we already had altered the natural food eaten by most animals in this nation.

Bringing an array of diseases to the animals that can be dangerous to human, mad cow comes to mind

Who is paying for this experiments? tax payer.

How about stopping humans from burping and releasing harmful gases, after all with so many people in the world we make enough gas to create a human bomb that can destroy the world.

Crazy...what a waste of money. Maybe they should work on humans not farting. Since I am the only female in the house, I would so vote for that!
