Demonized as contributing to climate change, cattle may actually decrease emissions, research shows

JTN: The researchers found that 19%-30% of methane emissions were from the cattle, but the rest was from the wetland soils. If the cows are removed, their research shows, it actually increases the amount of methane the wetland ecosystems give off. more here

  1. Why don’t these cLIEmate jerks that look like they’ve had too much Jack and just walked into a spider web (the Joe Cocker effect) just shut the fuk up until China, India and the rest of the planet clean up their filthy act. We already cleaned up out air and water a few decades ago. Yesterday it was their turn! Put a fukin cork in it!

  2. Have you ever paddled a canoe or boat through a swamp? The methane gases are gurgling up everywhere.
    I truly believe that all the oil and natural gas in the earth is not from dinosaurs and ancient plants, but from the atomic breakdown of elements occurring deep in the earth’s magma under the extreme heat and pressure that we cannot even fathom. As they cool and percolate toward the surface they go through atomic restructuring to form carbon and hydrogen and then blend to form various hydrocarbon molecules as they reach the crust and then are captured by the crust and form pools of crude oil (which is a complex mishmash of hydrocarbons) and various natural gas compounds. Some of these remain captured for millennia while others seep through fissures and reach the surface.

  3. All of Earth’s energy comes from the sun. The Earth has many ways of storing it. Oil is but one medium, but so long as the sun is radiating energy, oil will continue to be produced.

  4. Facts are irrelevant. Sound science is counter-productive to the watermelons’ goals. Climate hysteria is the tool the Left is using to destroy the bogeymen that have haunted their twisted dreams: the fossil fuel industries, hydropower, nuclear power, farmers and ranchers. No solutions can involve their survival.

  5. Only leftists would demonize cows. I always think of Borden’s Elsie the cow, always with a big smile and a daisy in her ear. As far as I know, they’re mostly happy and peaceful critters. I’ve heard of dairymen that have been kicked by a mad cow (remind you of someone on TV news?), but I think most people like cows. I do, and I’m not switching to almond or oat milk, which is in no way milk as it’s commonly understood.

    The cow is a creature that keeps on giving and giving. What could be better?

    I think you guys are right. All the doomsayers said we’d run out of oil by 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985…etc., etc., probably up to today. Doom and gloom Liberals are all chicken gutz and nothing more.

    Oil explorers keep finding more of it. I think it is somehow constantly being produced way down there in the earth. Another of God’s gifts, this one to keep us warm and our homes lit.

  7. Can cows actually fart? They have seven stomachs. In my simple machinist mind that would present a problem. I’ve been told by what I consider reliable sources they can’t. But the cow fart sniffers have taken over Google. You can’t find a strait forthright answer. Can any of you farm types shed some light here?

  9. Jethro, the Soviets figured this out in the 1950’s. Millions of dinosaurs didn’t get six miles from the earth’s surface. Oil and gas are made by deep earth processes and are truly “sustainable.” The Creator knew Daimler and Benz would invent the internal combustion engine in 1886, and gave us oil. Lots and lots of it.
