Global warming has always been my main concern, when I wrote a post of Cow Farts: Global Warmers Or A Load Of Hot Air?, most people that knew me thought I was crazy then, but think about it, we’ve lots of cows here in the US and elsewhere, and they do fart, then there must be lots of hot air, but is it enough to cause global warming? I guess living in the country is not all about fresh clean air after all, might have to put up with the cow farts as well.
Then the recent news of cow poop caused fire burning in California, those that used to laugh at me actually thought of my cow farts post that I did, and of course they thought of me, still laughing about it though, and I kept thinking to myself, farts from cows people, it’s methane gas and not laughing gas, I don’t think they get it. I do love cows and water buffaloes, as for now their business is fine with me, and if it does cause some hot air, hopefully someone that think like me would come up with a solution.
Global warming is not a laughing matter, we’ve to do our part to help protect mother earth.Today is Blog Action Day and the topic is Climate Change, also known as Global Warming.
As for me, I like to do my part as well, I try to carry my own cloth bags when I go grocery shopping. I think it’s time to save oil and wildlife by curbing use of plastic bags, the statistic from the Buffalo News is very scary, no laughing at my news source please.
According to the article, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency says that more than 500 billion bags are used worldwide each year. Less than one percent of those bags are recycled. Why? The economics simply does not work: it costs $4,000 to process and recycle one ton of plastic bags, which is then worth $32.
Our National Academy of Sciences reported in 1975 that oceangoing vessels dumped 8 million pounds of plastic annually. The rest, of course, ended in landfills or, even worse, sewers. For many of those plastics neither is the end of the line. They have been found north of the Arctic Circle near Spitzbergen and as far south as the Falkland Islands. They account for more than one-tenth of the debris washed up on the U. S. coastline.
