The first person to come up with an air purifying butt plug is going to make millions.
Methane gas in our atmosphere IS a serious problem. Passing laws limiting the gases from a cow's ass could be a good thing. Now if laws could be passed to filter the crap coming out of the mouths of the politicians, we'd be set.
How much gas can be affected and therefore changed by what they eat, to an extent. However, is it possible that this may be talking about for an entire farm/ranch, and that instead it could affect the number of cows they could have while staying under their total gas limit. So if the farmer/rancher could figure out how to have his cows produce less gas, he/she could have more cows.
Like most things they will take an average and limit the amount of cows you have....This is just my opinion not a fact...politicians can be so illogical sometimes you never know.....But this can be a good thing if all the stars align....we eat too much beef, we can limit the amount of cows, which will raise the price of meat. we will eat less meat be healthier and the farmer will make more money....Too bad that in reality things never work out like this and probably the big ones going profit and the small farmer will suffer
29 - Actually what's most likely going to happen is the dairy farmers and cattle ranchers will move to other states which have better prices on property and are more business/farmer friendly. It's sad how California continues to consistently force all business besides tourism out of the state. It leaves a lot of people trying to support families in part-time, minimum wage jobs.
I wouldn't worry OP, it's not like anyone can tell if your cows are "exceeding the limit" and then fine you or haul you off to jail.
I don't know the specifics in this case. However, it would be possible to install additional air quality monitoring stations. (Besides the ones that already exist and monitor the concentration of specific pollutants). I also don't know how expensive that would be.
