    How do the dairy farms that are using methane get the cows to fart in a tank?

    How ridiculous is it to actually SAY that the next twenty years are crucial? As if this 20, is more important than the last 20. I mean, seriously, someone actually believes it? Then, they actually POST it?
    It is truly sad. Or is pathetic the word?

    Cows like to hear the echo. :joecool:

    Seriously... they have them in enclosed barns with air handling systems that capture and separate the methane... as I understand it.

    They're capturing cow farts? Technology is great!

    Methane is a better fuel to make electric from fuel cells as it hydrogen content is so high.

    Methane is a natural gas so using it, should be a no brainer.

    There should be a fuel cell on every sewage plant in the nation as it would pay for itself in short order with the energy it would create.

    Farms cut their costs by using the free methane. They just pile up the waste and use the gas coming off of it.

    Man can control his own waste however. The air pollution caused by cars and electric plants are in fact our fault, and something we can control.

    There is man made pollution, stop trying to act like there isn't based on disbelief in GW which is a separate issue.
