    Climate change experts target cow flatulence
    Last Updated: 12:01am GMT 20/03/2008

    Britain's finest scientific minds have turned their attention to a problem that they claim is threatening the future of the entire planet - farm animal flatulence.

    Experts at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen say the average cow contributes as much to global warming as a family car that travels 12,000 miles.

    warming as a family car that travels 12,000 miles


    The scientists are now trying to produce new foodstuffs that result in livestock producing less methane.

    Professor Harry McArdle, of the institute, said: "Cattle and agriculture can be a very serious contributor towards the problem." [Snip]

    What's sad is that this article is supposedly serious.

    Well, duh, Dori, pirates are what keep this world together. They're the true masters of this Earth. Forget that super secret Illuminati stuff...

    Yarrrrrr.

    I thought the Flying Spaghetti Monster was what kept this world together.

    Ohh that graph is from the Pastafarian religion.
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

    Not evidence, but funny nonetheless.

    Reading this thread has really made me laugh!!!
    And as for farm animal flatulence adding to global warming... I think I know some humans with extreme flatulence that may be adding to the problem!

    Dori - I didn't know you were a fellow Pastafarian. May you be touched by the noodly appendage. Shiver me timbers!

    I would think, with the internet, the amount of pirates is greater than ever.

    That is a good point... I didn't even think of that when I was looking at this thread!

    Ah, right. I totally forgot they like pirates. I should've known after Dori posted the Noodly Appendage thing.
