New law sounds full of hot air


The Sun – April 28, 2007

Well, I guess someone was going to write this kind of law eventually. Of course, most people that truly understand the effects of greenhouse gases understand that we need to control methane production if we find that we need to reverse the warming of the planet. As far as this law, I have nothing more to say than to mark this posting “Ridiculous.”

Euro MPs are demanding new laws to stop cows and sheep PARPING. Their call came after the UN said livestock emissions were a bigger threat to the planet than transport.

The official EU declaration demands changes to animals’ diets, to capture gas emissions and recycle manure.

The UN says livestock farming generates 18 per cent of greenhouse gases while transport accounts for 14 per cent.

    If the decadent West would stop feeding tonnes of grain into wasteful cows for their steaks and burgers, this problem would be solved. Seriously, meat is a very inefficient energy store – the sunlight is absorbed by the crops, which use energy for respiration. The cow eats the crops, and then wastes a lot of it on movement, crap, intestines which we don’t eat and… Parp.
