In fact, 41 percent of Ben & Jerry’s carbon footprint came from cows. Apparently it takes a lot of gas to churn up milk for ice cream. When cows break wind it’s not just stinky; it’s blowing a hole in the ozone. And get this, cows produce gas out their front AND back ends. Okay, so maybe they’re not cuddly. Surprisingly, the methane from cows is about 21 times worse than carbon dioxide. No wonder they can jump over the moon. They are extremely non-aerodynamic rockets. Seriously, liquid methane is used as rocket fuel.
