Mini Cows Save World From Global Warming

mini-humansCOWS are killing us all. Not at Burger King, where global warming is baloney. But now the future is upon is. Hail the mini cow:

They soon realized they had more field than cattle; one animal needed less than an acre for grazing. Because the minicows could be grass-fed, the Peevlers were spending half the amount on feed that they would have spent on regular-sized animals. The minicows also reached their mature weight faster, so they could be sold for meat sooner.

The Peevlers have built up their herd to 16. One steer provides enough beef to fill the couple’s freezer for a year. Carolyn Peevler also considers them “green” red meat: They cause less wear and tear on her pasture land and fences and, she said with a laugh, they emit less methane gas.

Looks like the pygmies were right…

Bring on the mini termites!

San Antonio Runs On Sh*t

IN San Antonio your movements are being harvested:

San Antonio unveiled a deal on Tuesday that will make it the first U.S. city to harvest methane gas from human waste on a commercial scale and turn it into clean-burning fuel.

San Antonio residents produce about 140,000 tons a year of a substance gently referred to as “biosolids,” which can be reprocessed into natural gas, said Steve Clouse, chief operating officer of the city’s water system.

“You may call it something else,” Clouse said, but for area utilities, the main byproduct of human waste – methane gas – will soon be converted into natural gas to burn in their power plants.
