Study of belching cows funded
" A Swedish university has received $590,000 in research funds to measure the greenhouse gases released when cows belch.
About 20 cows will participate in the project run by the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, about 40 miles north of Stockholm, officials said Monday.
Cattle release methane, a greenhouse gas believed to contribute to global warming, when they digest their food. Researchers believe the level of methane released depends on the type of food they eat."
I didn't know that Al Gore had so much influence in other countries to have them believe and spend so much money on such a ridiculous thing.
God made cows. He made them to eat green grass and produce white milk. He gave them two stomachs; one to fill with the green grass (and other things) and the other is to be filled with what has been BELCHED up, chewed thoroughly and passed on to this second stomach for final processed into producing white milk, strength for their body and natural waste. God Made No Mistakes.
I guess the next headline we'll see will be someone in Tennessee, around Al's non-green mansion, be given a couple of million dollars to study the dangers of flatuence produce by donkeys!!!
And so it goes.......................
