  • It surely would not apply to us who don't have any cows. Lol
    • Linda Joy
      the idea is for it to be passed on to the meat eaters supposedly to reflect the real cost of eating meat.
    • Rick Myres
      Taxes taxes taxes. Even brass tax. lol

      All normal humans eat meat and vegetables, since we are omnivores.

      "All normal humans eat meat and vegetables, since we are omnivores." Guess you've never heard of a vegetarian person before.
  • i havent heard about that yet
  • Consumption taxes are generally regressive and it is a fine line before they become a "sin" tax. Are people going to give up beef and eat more chicken until we can offer them some more viable alternative?
  • You used Brietbart as a source??
    • Linda Joy
      I googled something I heard on the radio and grabbed one. There were several.
  • I'd like to see him installing a fart-o-meter on every cows ass, then ask him how smart his idea is.

      So says the chap wearing his oversize rubber boots.

      Sounds like typical kind of government job to me.

  • He's a farce as a scientist. Let him check on Whoopi Cushion Goldberg and Jessica Simpson for breaking wind excessively.
  • anything to tax us and end global warming.
  • How about fat American, - there's a very large number!
  • He is an actor pretending to be a scientist. He makes a fool of himself often.

      "The Cornell aerospace engineer is less qualified than me to talk about science, because he became an actor after a successful career at Boeing," said the amateur actress.
  • So how does a cow pay taxes?😋
    • Linda Joy
      lol
  • A liberal would tax the pennies on a dead man's eyes.
  • Breitbart is not a reliable source for anything. Scientists have found that adding a small amount of a certain seaweed to cattle feed reduces methane emissions by close to 90%. All this fake hysteria from the right about being forced to eat tofu or whatever they're outraged about this week is just so much noise.
    • Linda Joy
      Thank you for your input. This is an older question. But I didn't know about the seaweed. That's good to know. I do know that the plants give off these emissions whether they pass through a cow or not.
  • He would have to collect them first. Then he would have to grade them on potency, Then he'd have to have a way to preserve and ship them to market. 😏😔😖
  • The U.K. has already passed a law requiring a national reduction in methane production - which will almost certainly include a mandatory reduction in cattle raising. *** If you read the article, you'll see that Nye doesn't actually recommend "taxing cow farts"...though certainly the author of the article mischaracterized Nye's proposal in that way. *** It's a good idea, of course. #1 - it's a good idea ASSUMING that methane production is in fact contributing significantly to global warming (which thing, as far as I know, has NOT been established by science. For those who think it has, please read my careful wording before responding.) *** #2 - It's good idea IN ANY CASE for the environment. If (we imagine) the World were to reduce its consumption of beef by half, that would have TREMENDOUS long-term benefits for the environment - in many ways. Amazon rain forest destruction (millions of acres destroyed each year for use as cattle grazing land). Millions of acres of riparian habitats in the U.S. (currently grazed to destruction by cattle). Etc.
