COMMENT: Another phony global warming propaganda stunt in-the-making to demonize livestock, shutdown family farms and put a tax on life… Meanwhile, a new round of pathetic GOP-party stunts to appear tough on wasteful spending while refusing to address the real fiscal crisis Elephants in the room be it the Federal Reserve, funding for globalism via the United Nations, World Bank, IMF, bailouts to EU and its central banks, direct foreign aid to so many countries, the DoD’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the black budgets, the American empire and its hundreds of overseas bases, or any of the many unconstitutional agencies or sub-agencies attached to the Federal Government.

A team of scientists who study pollution’s role in global warming are outraged at a GOP Senator who, they say, has maligned their work as wasteful and petty by describing it as a study of “cow burps.”
“This was not funded with earmarks and it was not a study about cow burps,” said John Aber, an environmental scientist and provost of the University of New Hampshire.
Sen. Tom Coburn, R- Okla., released on Monday his annual “Wastebook” report, a look at 100 projects that received federal funding which, he says, contributed to record deficits in the past year.
Coburn’s “Wastebook” quotes one of the project’s researchers telling a local New Hampshire paper that “cows emit most of their methane through belching, only a small fraction from flatulence.”
