Assuming you lead a normal life, you, like me, were probably unaware that Sunday was Earth Day. And like me, you probably don’t give a crap. But many green-warriors sure did. And as a tip of hat to the green-weenies, the Daily Caller has complied a list.
A list of the:
The Dumbest Things You Could Do To Save The Earth From Global Warming
Environmentalists sometimes propose radical solutions to save the world from global warming — a disaster some say will destroy almost all life on Earth if not dealt with quickly and radically.
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a list of solutions suggested or tried, largely unsuccessfully, by environmentalists to roll back the effects of global warming.
Stop Cows From Eating Grass
Grass fed beef cattle are destroying the environment while putting off large amounts of methane just by digesting food. People need to cut back on the amount of cattle they raise and beef they eat to lessen the severe impact raising cattle is having on the environment, according to Tara Garnett of the University of Oxford’s Food Climate Research Network.
“Sadly, though it would be nice if the pro-grazers were right, they aren’t,” Garnett said in 2017, according to the New Scientist. “The truth is, we cannot eat as much meat as we like and save the planet.”
If We Can’t Stop Cows From Eating Grass, Let’s Just Stop Cows From Farting So Much
Scientists have developed “fartpacks” for cattle to wear, capturing the animals’ methane emissions before they are released out in to the environment. The backpacks capture cows’ methane through a tube inserted into the animals’ stomachs, The Daily Mail reported.
Capturing cows’ methane not only fights climate change from keeping the gas from entering the environment, but the gas can then be converted into energy. A cow emits enough gas in a day to — after being converted into usable energy — power a car for the same amount of time.
