California New Law – Farting Cows Are Violating Pollution Laws

California Gov. Jerry Brown kept up his assault on farming and business has pushed through a law to reduce cow fart emissions from dairy farms.

Brown’s approval of Senate Bill 1383 goes after short-lived climate pollutants, which include methane, cow farts!

Brown said “these gases don’t linger in the atmosphere, they still make people sick and hasten global warming. We’re protecting people’s lungs and their health.”

Senate Bill 1383 requires dairy farmers have to cut methane emissions to
40 percent below 2013
levels by 2030.

California Air Resources Board can also now regulate bovine flatulence, as long as there are practical ways to reduce the cows’ belching and breaking wind.

Composting also has to go up by 50 percent within four years to curb methane from organic waste.
The state’s head of the National Federation of Independent Business rails against the “arbitrary” limits and says they’re a “direct assault on California’s dairy industry,”

  1. With all that hot air in the California legislature, the law should apply to them as well. Next they will be passing laws against senior citizen flatulence.

  2. OMG I can only laugh at this!


  3. Well, thank goodness someone has addressed the Dread Explosion of Cow Farts at long last. This has kept me awake for years! In any event we probably won’t have to worry too much longer, what with, yes, fracking, oil trains, and glycophosphatewhateveritis in everything we eat….good to know our “leaders” are keeping their eyes on…ball……..


  4. Gov. GB probably did not restrict fracking, though. No worry about CA water supply or quality? No worry about the effects of extracting Natural Gas from the ground to be used a short-term sollution to energy desires? Guess we know where CA’s bucks are coming from… not the rodeo.

    • Grin … Brown better be glad ‘Cow’s’ don’t vote.
      Happy Gardening


      • If corporations are people (Citizens United Supreme Court decision & Mit Romney gaff), why can’t animals vote. I’m sure PETA would help register them. Personally, I would not trust a goat to vote… smart, devious, self-centered. We would have a dictatorship soon… Then again, this political season seems filed with voting goats.


  5. How on earth are they going to manage that?
