I’ve been reading recently about the methane crisis in this country . Methane is an major ruiner of the environment , I guess . That is , I should say , too much methane . All things in moderation ! L.A Basin methane emissions have been found to be 61% higher that estimated . The President is calling for higher restrictions .
I think cows create endless clouds of methane . I’m not joking about that . Watch out around cows . At least around large gangs of cows . I’d have to go a ways from Arcadia to find large crowds of cows , but I know that they’re out there , lurking ; chewing , spewing methane .
I’ve been adding to the environmental problem , too . I’ll admit it . I’m not proud of it ; but , it happens . I won’t blame it all on old age , but that’s a factor . And the cabbage . And the split pea soup . And , I hate to admit it , probably the beer .
Other foods , too , contribute , I ‘m quite sure . Who knows what our food is made up of these days ! I suspect all the secret ingredients are , in the end ( or, from the end ) , methane producers . It’s just a theory so far . Until I see it on Facebook it isn’t a reality . Until I see one of those informative blurbs on Facebook which someone has regurgitated from some desperately passionate source of information to prove this or that about this or that I won’t know for sure . The survival of the world usually depends on my believing the blurb, it seems ; and , if I read one , there are usually more I might chose from .
I think reading Facebook might induce the production of methane . It’s just a theory so far . Sitting around pecking at a computer keyboard instead of going outside to play is a problem . I might take a walk , too , and at least this distributes my contributions of methane around the neighborhood . I suppose that this doesn’t help to solve the methane problem , of course , though , but it temporarily spreads out ( what’s the scientific term for this ? ) the concentration . Keeps some of it out of the house .
Haven’t mentioned the ( lesser ) related problem , too , of noise pollution . Let’s save that one for discussion another time . Or not .
It’s absolutely stupid that we live without an ozone layer . We’ve got men , we’ve got rockets , we’ve got saran wrap . Fix it ! —–Lewis Black
