Argentina Scientists Are Now Attaching Backpacks To Collect Cow Farts

Scientists in Argentina may have just the answer to combat global warming.

With cows being responsible for up to 25 percent of the methane gas released in the US each year, a group of scientists at Argentina’s National Institute of Agricultural Technology is now attaching backpacks to cows to collect the animals’…farts.

Here’s the way it works: Tubes connected to the cows’ digestive tracks are collected and then stored in the backpack. Scientists say that the farts collected each day could produce enough energy to run a car or refrigerator for an entire 24 hours.

While the likelihood of this becoming a mainstream form of energy production is quite slim, the Argentine scientists say these silent but deadly bovine deeds could be used to power remote farms.

The whole solar system seems to be undergoing a change, with the weakest solar cycle in 100 years, new bodies being discovered beyond Neptune and, bizarrely, the tally of Jupiter’s moons going up and down, apparently randomly.

Could at least some, if not all, of the major events that have happened around the world in recent years be connected to this increase in fireballs? I mean, some truly astounding things have been happening right in front of our eyes… ‘mystery booms’sinkholes,floodsmass animal deaths‘strange sky sounds’extreme and unusual weather patterns all over the place, revolutions and warssocial chaosbig earthquakes andtsunamis… all on a scale never seen in the ‘modern’ era.

Today our heroes and soul brothers, Roger Ridley and Grandpa Elliott, return for a new song around the world, “Sitting on the dock of the bay“, featured on our new PFC 2 album. I once asked Roger why with such a powerful voice like his he was singing on the streets, he replied, “I am in the joy business, I come out here to be with the people”. Roger and Grandpa have brought so much joy to the life of millions and today we are blessed to see them reunited again. We all shine on and Roger’s light is as bright as the sun!!

When the Pacific Ocean altered rainfall patterns around the world, the subsequent climate shifts coincided with the fall of Mayan civilization, researchers said, occurring after the peak in A.D. 900. This is the Mayan temple complex at Tikal, Guatemala.

The Tang dynasty also fell during a time of dryness associated with the same event coinciding with the end of Mayan civilization. Dunhuang was a vital command post on the Silk Road during China’s Tang dynasty, which ended about A.D. 906.

Based on tree rings in Vietnam, scientists determined that there were serious droughts before the collapse of the Angkor kingdom. Shown here are temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia; there are more than 100 temples in the area built between A.D. 802 and 1220.

China’s Yuan dynasty, lasted from A.D. 1279 to 1368. The area shares the same climate as Angkor, which collapsed about the same time.

The Akkadian empire — about 2350 to 2150 B.C. — collapsed around a time of dryness, as indicated by continental dust that was blown from Mesopotamia into the Gulf of Oman.

(CNN) It’s a hot day; sweat soaks your forehead, and you just want to get back to your air-conditioned home, so of course you’re going to be angry if the car in front of you doesn’t move when the traffic light turns green. Honk! Honk!

When the temperature rises, so does aggression — and that can lead to large-scale consequences, considering that climate change is turning up the heat over the entire planet.

A new study in the journal Science shows that shifts in climate historically have been associated with violent conflicts, among both individuals and groups, and that current warming patterns could significantly increase the abundance of human conflict by midcentury.

Researchers’ meta-analysis of 60 studies suggest that, consistent with links between conflict and climate shifts in the past, the risk of intergroup conflict around much of the planet would be amplified by 50% in 2050.
