    Proposed fee on smelly cows, hogs angers farmers

    I'm all for green initiatives but this strikes me as a bit out there.

    They'll be taxing us to breathe oxygen next as it is depleting the earths reserves.

    If they're going to start taxing for cow farts, what about human farts? No more Mexican food for me.

    Is there something so toxic in the cows that makes the air unbreathable?

    I think methane gas is a stronger greenhouse gas than CO2, but the only way to stop both on a living organism is the eat the cow.

    I love to eat cows. Steak is my friend. I have no problem with being a part of the solution by eating them.

    So is the tax per head?

    If it is, I'm all for it. Cows pollute in so many ways aside from their flatulence, and their meat is not very environmentally friendly (which doesn't stop me from enjoying a steak every so often, but I would probably enjoy it less often if the prices were even higher).
