Did you know that raising one serving of beef produces as many greenhouse gas emissions as raising five servings of chicken?

... “But cow fanciers should fear not, because scientists are busy finding ways to turn this smelly problem into a solution. They've already developed a method for extracting methane from cow excrement and converting it to a biogas fuel that's of sufficient quality to be fed into a standard natural gas pipeline. In Kern County, Calif., a company called BioEnergy Solutions uses that method to produce 650,000 cubic feet (18,406 cubic meters) of biogas from manure, enough to power 200,000 households” science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/five-forms-alternative-energy4.htm

Wow, I’m surprised by that! We eat beef 2-3 times a week, so I’ll definitely consider scaling back on that.

I’m surprised it’s not more. Cow farts directly product methane
