Making Cows Burp Less

After abundant evidence was found indicating that farmed animals contribute to 18% of global warming gases, scientists are looking into finding the right mix of food that would help cows burp less, and therefore emit less global warming gases. Michael Abberton, a scientist at the UK-based Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research, stated that "There is a common misperception about how methane gets into the atmosphere," ... "It is actually through belching rather than the other end," noting that the average dairy cow belches out about 100 to 200 liters of methane each day.

Finding ways to control the emission of global warming gases into the atmosphere while ignoring the suffering of farmed animals, is not consistent with being good stewards of God’s Creation. When we reduce our meat intake, or adopt a plant-based diet, we are actively participating in the reconciliation of God’s Creation by alleviating animal suffering and helping restore the environment.
