The Cows Caused It: A Poem about Global Warming

It's a good thing there are folks like Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California and Rep. John Boehner of Ohio around to help shed light on who the worst producers of greenhouse gases may be. Who knew it was the flatulence of dinosuars and cows that may have caused climatic changes on planet Earth?

FYI: Some News Links

On the Flatulence of Cows and Global Warming

The dinosaurs farted.
And now it’s the cows—
Whose anal emissions
Waft into the air
Increasing the greenhouse
Gases “up there.”
In blissful abandon
Cows graze on green grass,
Mooing and chewing
And chewing and pooing—
All the while strewing
Brown pies everywhere.

These flatulent bovines…
These cud masticators
Digestive polluters …
Toxic gas generators…
These methane producers
Seem harmless and charming.
But I’ve got the scoop—
On the cows and their poop:
They’re the primary cause
Of Earth’s global warming


  1. People are so ignorant! Yes, cows do put off noxious gases... but I daresay the human-pollution input is much, much, MUCH higher than anything the poor cows can do.

  2. Tanita,

    I just have to shake my head when I hear some of these ignoramuses saying things like the cows may be the cause of global warming. Boehner even thinks cows emit CO2 when they "do what cows do"--instead of methane.
