Farmers can help us keep our SUVs and city smokestacks

Cows that burp less seen helping in climate fight (link to Yahoo/Reuters article)
.
Maybe not this cow, she's my Irish friend. Look closely, you can see my rear view mirror. I was in line, waiting for this cow and the farmer to pass.
.
No, I didn't say pass gas. Just pass us period, we met her and her farmer walking down the road.
.
Can my cow friends be used as scape goats?

"... getting cows to burp less can help reduce global warming.
.
Using modern plant-breeding methods to find new diets for cows that make them belch less is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scientists said on Monday.
.
He [Michael Abberton, a scientist at the UK-based Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research] noted the average dairy cow belches out about 100 to 200 liters of methane each day, making diet changes a key potential factor in reducing this greenhouse gas.
.
"There is a common misperception about how methane gets into the atmosphere," he said. "It is actually through belching rather than the other end."
.
Agriculture is responsible for about seven percent of UK greenhouse gas emissions and a large proportion of two of the most potent gases with 37 percent of methane and 67 percent of nitrous oxide."

Stewards of the earth -- Live Earth, 2007

Live Earth 2007 (link to New York Times) was huge. A huge success? We will see, I hope so.

Genesis 1:26-30 (New International Version):

26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.


30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food." And it was so.
