EPA Issues “Fart Chart”: Bovine Flatulence Measured State-by-State

The EPA has spent roughly $15 million to measure the pollution caused largely by cow farts and burps. I truly want to meet the researchers who got this assignment. Nevertheless, it turns out that California and Wisconsin are massive contributors to cow-based emissions. While Ronald Reagan may have identified trees as a major source of pollution, the report below reveals the dark untold story of those cute dairy cows that you see on the cartons of Ben and Jerry Ice Cream.

Cows produce large amounts of ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) particulates, nitrous oxide and methane. They produce so much that they surpass: Coal Mining Manure Management; Waste Water Treatment; Mobile Combustion and Iron & Steel Production.

For those of us who watch the Simpsons, this is no surprise. That leading attorney, Troy McClure, (who you may remember from such educational films as “Lead Paint: Delicious But Deadly,” and “Here Comes the Metric System!”) warned: “Don’t kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, he’d eat you and everyone you care about!” Read this report and you will finally understand.

  1. So, if I read this correctly, the FCC could use this EPA report to pull Rush Limbaugh off the air?

  2. This debacle is compounded by the Dairy Association that has overwhelmed us with more dairy than is possibly healthy, even in the most scant diet and the Beef Industry that produces more beef than is healthy for us to consume.

    Yet – we consume and consume and consume – plus we import more beef from Argentina and Brazil. Much of it frozen, much of it in cans, and if it’s at your butcher counter – no one has to tell you anything except that it is USDA Inspected and the Grade. How’s that for lobbying power.

    Our congress has caused this debacle – deregulation being a battle cry attributed to the worshipers of Reagan, which effectively left Americans unprotected. Just as an aside – if Ronald Reagan had indeed had his way for more deregulation – then the Air Traffic Controllers would have told him to take a hike because they worked for a private agency as it almost is now – and he wouldn’t have had all those manly-man sound bites.

    We’ve now got what he and his felonious heirs wished upon us. The oligarchs have got direct deposit, Congress is like so many doormen with their hands out to get us cabs, and the US Gov’t is counting farts. Perfect.

  5. These people who are running the EPA and advocating charging a “flatulence tax” are a bunch of socialist bozos who are little concerned about anything other than big government and how it can control every detail of your life, including the amount of transfat you can consume, etc. and how much bovine flatulence is allowed for dairy farmers who can’t make a satisfactory living without a large herd of milking cows. This mindless venturing into the unknown will bring penury to all of us. Carbon dioxide is a plant nutrient and stimulates crop growth remarkably. This is science.

    Obama may have went to Harvard Law School and Columbia University, but I doubt that he learned much more than socialism and community organizing via Saul Alinski, the vaunted socialist who also taught Hillary Clinton and the infamous bomber who escaped the law through a technicality after bombing the Pentagon in the 70-80’s.
