Anyway,I addressed this issue in an earlier post, this, as the title infers, is a more recent development.
Well, apparently it can now be controlled without using corks, which would, in theory I 'spose, make them (cows) WMDs :) or something. I'm picturing this in my head....explosive cows.....
Anyway, scientists have created a supplement to curb cow's excessive 'gaseous emissions', a.k.a. in technical terms as 'flatulence' and 'eructation', in layman's, 'farting' and 'belching'.
So that takes care of domestic ruminants, but what about those in the wild, such as deer, moose, elk, giraffe, reindeer (um, maybe that is why Santa's can fly, maybe they run on methane!), etc.?
And what of vegetarians? Of course, they do not have chambered stomachs, nor do they regurgitate cud, at least not that I know of, but who knows where the course of evolution may take them in time :) Or any of us, for that matter...our matter.
In short, everyone has gas occasionally, some more than others, though not high in methane, but still, I think we all should do our best to control our emissions, every little bit helps to lessen global warming. Here are some slogans to live by 'Do your part, don't fart!', 'Squelch the belch!' and
'Don't be a derp, stop the burp!'
Seriously, though, we have to do something, maybe vegans have the answer, less livestock=less methane production, less land being cleared for grazing, etc.?
Anyhow, a little off cows, at one time farting was considered entertainment-
