The exercise is part of a global effort to keep sheep, deer, cows and other livestock from belching methane when they eat and regurgitate grass. Methane is among the most potent greenhouse gases, and researchers now believe livestock industries are a major contributor to climate change, responsible for more greenhouse-gas emissions than cars are, according to the United Nations.

Hannibal was correct, right Clarice ?

So what's the plan then? Shove corks up their rectums? Ask politely? Perhaps link them all to rectal pipes and catch it all?

Hmm....

Maybe we can do this with all the politicians of the world , they spew more cr*p into the atmosphere than any creature alive.

This is getting ridiculous. This isn't going to end until they get their carbon tax.

Leave the animals alone, plant a tree instead you stupid scientists.

Where do they get their education? Probably government schools. You have to be stupid to believe this crap.

Actually, their plans are far more ridiculous.... You are correct about the rectal pipes.

Here is an example of what I mean by ridiculous:

Backpacks that trap cows farts....


*Seriously..... Look at that poor cows face!

Beans, beans, the magical fruit. The more you eat: the more you toot!
The more you toot: the better you feel. So lets eat beans at every meal!

Maybe things wouldn't be so bad if we didn't chop down every tree in sight. I would love to see the data concerning the rise in CO2 emissions coinciding with all of the deforestation that has gone on.

Seems as if the "scientists" are now going after natural sources of greenhouse gases. A couple questions:

1) Wonder how the world survived dinosaur gas? Bet they gave off quite a bit more than the wildlife currently inhabiting the Earth now.

2) Do the scientists have a plan to deal with volcanic greenhouse gas emissions worldwide?

3) Do they have a plan for all the greenhouse gas emitted by decomposition of organic matter worldwide?

Looks like we need to spend a lot more money on these matters, doesn't it?

VIVA LA SOCIALISM!

Didn't you get the memo?

Trees are bad now, and should be chopped down once they get too big for their britches:

"Over its lifetime, a tree shifts from being a vacuum cleaner for atmospheric carbon to an emitter. A tree absorbs roughly 1,500 pounds of CO2 in its first 55 years. After that, its growth slows, and it takes in less carbon. Left untouched, it ultimately rots or burns and all that CO2 gets released,"

"Clear the oldest trees and then take out dead trunks and branches to prevent fires; landfill the scrap." -Wired Magazine.

*Damn those trees!

Ya really got to wonder about these folks that come up with these ideas. Did they fall off the turnip truck last night and hit their heads? Sheep, deer and cow belching...bad...sheep, deer and cows braking the wind...bad, bad, bad.

RED ALERT, RED ALERT...WE HAVE AN UNAUTHORIZED SHEEP BELCHING AND DASIE THE COW JUST BROKE THE WIND!!!

Someone really needs to get a grip here...and exactly which university did they say they graduated from?

For the love of....
What are they doing!!!!!!!!
Genetically altering animals so they produce less gas, are you freakin' kidding me!!!!!! I am disgusted. What makes humans think they can actually do good with this kind of crap. Did they ever think that maybe it's the billions of humans causing this instead of animals. Duh!!!!!!!!!
