More Than Just a Bad Smell

Did you know that cows/livestock produce more methane gas from their farts than that produced by automobiles?! According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, methane gas produced by livestock makes up 18% of the world’s emissions compared to 5% from transportation. That is amazing!

    Can’t you see it now…pretty soon they will have cattle farms where the cows farts are gathered and sold to industries to produce heat for making steam to power the generators that produce power that the farmers use to gather the cows farts. Man this green stuff gets complicated.

    What’s so funny is that there is a Remax commercial on television right now with a couple looking for an eco-friendly home. The man says, “Maybe even with methane!” and I started laughing and said to my husband, “Yes, because we all want to live among the cow farts!” and suddenly they show the couple standing next to a windmill surrounded by cows.

    Gross, eh?
