If bovine flatulence is such a big environmental issue in the world today, why don't we capture it and use it for fuel?

Cow farts are mostly methane, and methane can be compressed and used as a motor fuel, or burned to make steam to spin a turbine to make electricity!

    It's being done (not with emissions from the animals directly, but with methane from manure).

    False! That was a LIE made up by some childish right wing nut. They burp more methane than they fart. Burps aren't as funny as farts though.....

      They were doing this in California years ago. They put a metal roof over the feed lot and collected the methane as it rose to the under side of the roof. It wasn't worth the cost back then, but since it's such a big environmental issue these days...
