The EPA's new target: Cattle flatulence

Okay, we have officially entered the Environmental Twilight Zone. The federal government is trying regulation cattle flatulence:
The Environmental Protection Agency said April 17 that it is closer to declaring greenhouse-gas emissions a threat to public health. The announcement heated the debate over what types of emissions should be regulated, including large cattle-feeding operations. " EPA estimates that U.S. cattle emit about 5.5 million metric tons of methane per year into the atmosphere, accounting for 20 percent of U.S. methane emissions," reports Lisa Hare of the Yankton Press & Dakotan.
One of the many ramifications of the Obama administration's policy of Government Control of Everything.
