Take That PETA! Scientists Reduce 99% of Methane From Cow Burps Using a Surprising Solution

I can already see that steak on my table. Cows are notorious for their meat, their mass, and their.... gas. A great deal of their methane production happens from their burps interestingly enough. And it is here that scientists are trying to come up with a solutions. Agriculture is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, with a third of that coming from livestock.

In an attempt to stymie the growing emission levels, California has enacted several regulations requiring all dairy farmers to reduce their methane emissions by at least 40% over the next decade. However, researchers at the University of California and the University of the Sunshine Coast looked into a solution in 2018 and 2019 respectively, and just recently came up with several solutions that may get them to those goals much quicker. Two different attempts have been made to solve the issue, with significantly different methodologies.

The global nutrient pump's clogged and we're to blame.

In a recent paper, an international team of scientists proposed the human race went and mucked up the natural redistribution and recycling processes of the world's nutrient supplies. Due to the extinction of many species, and the endangerment of even more, we currently deal with a worldwide sh*t-fueled nutrient production system that operates at 6% capacity.

We can't guess how severe such a low operating capacity imposes at this point, but we can all agree this is some bulls*it.

Can't we just let the far-roaming animals fu*king roam?

But the good news here is we'll probably create some new nature preserves, and maybe restore some cloned mammoths.

Fu*king mammoths.

Do you enjoy riddles?

Well, if not that, do you enjoy people getting increasingly frustrated over riddles?

If you enjoy both, this video is for you!

It combines our love of riddles, cows, fields and anger in a tapestry of virality, spiraling its way down the Internet's drain.

Now, we'll have to ask how long it took you to get the thing? Need a hint?

At least it's way easier than this nonsense:



If you enjoy this sort of inane thing, we've got more for you right here.

A herd of dairy cows nearly lifted the roof off their barn in central Germany when methane released by the animals caused an explosion.

Police in Hesse state said in a statement that a static electric charge apparently triggered the detonation, and a spurt of flame, on Monday at a farm in Rasdorf. The roof was slightly damaged and one cow suffered light burns. No people were hurt.

Police say 90 cows are kept in the shed and it wasn't clear why quantities of methane had built up. Bovine belching and flatulence releases large quantities of the gas.
