Global Warming Follies


Daily Folly – January 3rd, 2007: Kangaroo farts, finally we’ve figured it out!

The news from down under is that apparently those hopping bastards are farting up a storm—a global-warming friendly storm. In ten years, I hope scientists look back and hear how stupid they sound.

Courtesy news.com.au:

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.
