Tastes Just Like Chicken!

You might have missed it, but the House Appropriations Committee made sure that the EPA couldn't regulate livestock as a greenhouse gas source. Earlier in the year, the EPA conducted a survey on taxing businesses that emit over 100 tons of methane gas a year--not from cows or sheep themselves, but from their droppings. This survey was declared by a Greensboro, NC dairy farmer to be "a buncha bull" (we just love that quote). Part of the issue here is the American taste for meat. The Aussies love their meat, too, but there's a push now to eat more kangaroo as a way to reduce methane emissions. We tackle this in "A Minute of Your Time," and wonder what Americans might substitute on their dinner plates instead of steak. A hint: has something to do with this guy....

Do I look tasty?
