Cow Wind Update

Unknown Artist - Cow Painted As SkyHaving begun a thread, I like to keep you posted on developments. Nearly two years ago I brought you the saga of flatulent cows in the UK (CLICK). The latest news is that it's their burps which are warming the planet more than their farts. Scientists delving into this elusive business have been strapping belch-sampling valves to cows' muzzles. The device counts burps too. In one day a cow can belch 400 litres of methane into the atmosphere! Farts count for only 10% of bovine methane production. If we're going to cut emissions and save the planet, we've got to tackle this problem head on.
