California regulates cow farts

Recommended Posts

GALT, Calif. (AP) — California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm.

The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock.

Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure.

"If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming," said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report.

Since the passage of its landmark global warming law in 2006, California has been reducing carbon emissions from cars, trucks, homes and factories, while boosting production of renewable energy.

In the nation's largest milk-producing state, the new law aims to reduce methane emissions from dairies and livestock operations to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030, McCarthy said. State officials are developing the regulations, which take effect in 2024.

"We expect that this package ... and everything we're doing on climate, does show an effective model forward for others," McCarthy said.

Rest.....

More farts come out of the mouths of politicians than a whole herd of cows could accomplish.  Nothing is sacred now, not even a cow fart. :chuckle:

 I thought this was a joke but I was sadly mistaken. So the libs are hell bent it seems to destroy any and all sources of revenue by over regulations. Well I can guarantee that if this continues then all those farmers are gonna move to friendlier locations and stiff the Cali commies out of revenue that they so desperately need. Especially after Trump cuts all those sanctuary cities from the federal spigot that they've gotten comfortable with. It will be interesting to see how long they last. The Iron Lady said it best " Socialism only works until you run out of other people's money."

Jeez, California is turning into a totally insane shithole and it seems like the people that live there are OK with it. What's going on over there??? Geoengineering? Mind-washing? Social imbeciles. Anyone here living in CA that can explain this mass hysteria?

I believe they've all been libotomized. It's the cities controlling the conservatives in the outlying areas.  Just like in Washington state and Oregon, NY, everywhere. There was a considerable amount of red on the electoral map showing counties in Cali.  But they are like a big blue gang, with criminals running the place from top to bottom. Swamp needs drained here bad.

It's a gorgeous place. The weather by the coast is perfect year round with no or little humidity. And the landscape is very diverse. It's the only place I've ever lived that I could go surfing in the morning skiing in the afternoon and play in the sand dunes in the desert all in the same day. That being said its the liberal f**ks in LA and SF that are ruining that place and forcing the conservatives who live everywhere else in the state to deal with their psychotic rules. That's why if you do some digging you'll find that the northern half of the state has been trying to cut itself from the southern half for many years. They want to call it the state of Jefferson. But we all know that will be next to impossible.
