We’re Saved: California Governor Signs Cow Fart Legislation

I let you know earlier in the month about the Brokeifornia legislation passing cow far legislation. Now we get

Cow Fart Regulation Passed Into California Law (yes, that really is the headline)

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation that regulates emissions from dairy cows and landfills for the first time as California broadens its efforts to fight climate change beyond carbon-based greenhouse gases.

Will this hurt California’s cow farmers, which revolves heavily around milk production?

(NY Post) Dairy farmers will be required to reduce methane emissions from manure to 40 percent below their 2013 levels by 2030, with the help of $50 million from the state’s fee charged to polluters, known as cap-and-trade.

The money will help a handful of them buy dairy digesters, which use methane from manure to generate energy that’s sold to electrical utilities.

The law also allows the Air Resources Board to regulate cow flatulence if there’s viable technology to reduce it.

Taxpayer money will be used for this idiocy, but, you can still expect the price of milk to go up.

What’s mostly missed, though, in the absurdity of regulating cow farts, is

The new law requires steep reductions in a variety of pollutants, including methane; HFC gases used in aerosols and air conditioning refrigerants; and soot, known as black carbon. It’s tied to $90 million in funding for the dairy industry and garbage collectors.

Everything in there will increase the costs to consumers. But, hey, the majority of Californians who voted for this, keep your mouths shut when you start feeling the economic pain. It’s on you.

    Has california solved the unicorn fart problem already?

    Im surmising that the left will be outlawing beans to consumers in the coming few years to get rid of human excessive flatulence.

    First they came for the moo cows, and I did not speak out–Because I was not a moo cow…

    LOL, DP!

    The cows probably didn’t stand a chance, what with every leftie diet snob running their mouth about the evils of dairy. Big Dairy. They want all the poor people to eat twenty dollar breakfasts with green smoothies, flaxseed, spinach, avocado, heirloom banana, almond milk, organic berries, Chia seeds, and microgreens. Illegal immigrants can get theirs free at local schools because pets can’t be expected to assimilate.

    “…manure to 40 percent below their 2013 levels

    Implies someone actually measured those levels in 2013. I am guessing they will just use estimates and collective numbers, not real measurements. That way they can fine anyone who owns cows whenever they need a cash infusion.

    Nope. Probably computer models, anomalies, algorithms… that can be, ahem, “adjusted” just like the global alarmists do.

    So, they are going to be required to engineer their bullshit?

    Conservatives seem to be stuck living in the past

    Gee, I wonder why California is called the land of the fruits and nuts?

  13. drowningpuppies says:

    Right over your head, retard.

    The joke is about “regulating flatulence”.

    The massive methane capture system in China has nothing to do with decreasing and regulating flatulence.

    Spend a little more time on your nonexistent reading comprehension skills before exhibiting your stupidity by insulting conservatives.

  14. I love how John thinks we all live in the city and are unaware of life outside Broad and Main street. Too funny!

    Once again, California thinks that regulation will save the world. I wonder how they plan on making illegal aliens obey this law?

    And CA’s slide into Mexico North continues apace. Maybe the upshot of this type of overregulation is that CA commits suicide and Hollywood and the porn industry will finally die? One can hope.
