Experts said the slow digestive system of cows makes them a key producer of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that gets far less public attention than carbon dioxide.

In a bid to understand the impact of the wind produced by cows on global warming, scientists collected gas from their stomachs in plastic tanks attached to their backs.

The Argentine researchers discovered methane from cows accounts for more than 30 per cent of the country's total greenhouse emissions.

While the story does have some truth to it about methane being worse for the so called global warming that cow looks ridiculous!

Probably according to some people.

I for one do not believe in the man made "global warming" but I will always listen to what they have to say. And if they keep strapping fart tanks to the backs of cows I think it will just discredit there efforts in the eyes of some people.

Aye... we have truly gone off the deep end.

Isn't there a hungry child somewhere that could have used the money that went into this bulls***?

We may have just found a green source for natural gas...

Who the hell takes these jobs?

This is what a College education in America gets you, 250,000 in debt for student loans and you graduate with a masters in biology and land a job collecting cow farts...

This is a lesson for younger posters...skip college start a business

and I'm not fooled...

This is

A: A hydrogen powered cow being tested as an oil free transportation system

B: A new type of Stealth Bomb the gas is really Nerve gas ignited whn it mixes with enough methane

C: Dick Cheenys idea of a practical joke... he uses it to sneak into Bushes room at night and opens the flap and runs

D: Darpa is testing a floating cow they can drop as a giant meat bomb

You owe me a new keyboard for that one.
Spat my wine all over it!!!!

I only jumped on here because I was trying to work out how they collected it. I pictured farmers running around the paddock with bags held up to the cows bums. This gadget is brilliant :shk:

This is just plain ridiculous.

To me it seems like someone is trying to pass off the blame to another source besides us.

Also, who has the job of opening up the thing on the cows back
Now THATS a bad day at work.

Lol sorry

Here's the scary thought though... If the Aliens by law can only practice on us, what we do to other lesser species...

somewhere there's a fat woman on a ufo right now with a bag of flatulence on her back
