As part of his climate change agenda, California’s governor, Jerry Brown, has regulated cow farts. Yep, cow farts. Nope, we are not kidding. Cow farts and manure cause methane, and methane, he contends, hastens global warming. As a result, the state’s dairy farmers have been tasked with reducing their methane emissions by 40% by 2030.
The days of the “Happy California Cow” just might be numbered.
