Manure Management Is Next Battle For Cult Of Climastrology Or Something

Is this one the most perfect headlines you’ve ever seen in regard to ‘climate change’?

Conference to focus on manure management in battle against climate change

Just let that resonate for a few.

  • A big conference with people coming in using fossil fueled vehicles and airplanes? Check
  • Positioning it as a “war”? Check
  • Big-wigs looking for some sort of solutions (which will involve government force)? Check
  • Talking about manure, which is what this issue is? Check

More than 250 delegates from across Europe and around the world will gather in Wexford next month to discuss a range of scientific research topics with potentially profound importance for the future environmental performance of Irish agriculture.

The biennial Ramiran (Recycling of Agricultural, Municipal and Industrial Residues in Agriculture Network) conference is being hosted by Teagasc and will focus on new cutting-edge strategies and technologies to improve the efficiency of manure and residue management on farms.

This has implications far beyond the farm gate, according to Teagasc research officer and conference co-host Dr Karl Richards. “Agriculture accounts for one third of Ireland’s greenhouse gas emissions,” he says. “By tackling manure management as much as 3-4 per cent of national emissions can be addressed and that could make a significant contribution to meeting our targets for greenhouse gas reductions.”

Four checks. And nothing is better than talking about manure than when talking about anthropogenic climate change.

    A quick check also shows that County Wexford is Ireland’s most-sun-soaked county and boasts several beaches, numerous golf courses, and lively entertainment venues. Just the ticket for tired conference goers after a day of talking shit.
