Green gas
Posted by: mcq on Thursday, December 06, 2007

Call it "the kangaroo cure":
Australian scientists are trying to give kangaroo-style stomachs to cattle and sheep in a bid to cut the emission of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, researchers say.

Thanks to special bacteria in their stomachs, kangaroo flatulence contains no methane and scientists want to transfer that bacteria to cattle and sheep who emit large quantities of the harmful gas.

While the usual image of greenhouse gas pollution is a billowing smokestack pushing out carbon dioxide, livestock passing wind contribute a surprisingly high percentage of total emissions in some countries.
Frankly, their time would be better spent on transferring the bacteria to politicians. A one-step solution for saving the world in my estimation.

(And, yes, if you're wondering, after saying there would be light blogging on my part today, I got up at 5am - the old strange bed/too much to eat and drink/on the road syndrome)

"I just keep having this funny image of scientist smelling and comparing the flatulence of Kangaroos to cows."

Just one example of the selfless dedication and willingness to sacrifice of environmental scientists. If the rest of you would give just 10% of what these socially responsible people do, our Mother Earth (PBUH) would escape the tragic fate awaiting her due to the depredations and selfish excesses of you and your fellow deniers.
