You may remember the cow fart data of some years back.
Certainly that was disgraceful.
It seems to be the case that we have forgotten our own contribution to
the greenhouse effect.
Let's be straight about this as there is little less than the
survival of the planet at risk.
How many times do you fart each day?
Now, I do not mean those days on which you choose to brave the other
possibilities of munching at your local Mexican fast food
What about those days that you simply eat eggs for breakfast ( in
What about those evenings that you indulge in cabbage, improperly
cooked, due to a certain ethnic leaning.
Aye, what about your particular predilection for consuming hard boiled
eggs and beer at the same sitting!
It's a bloody mess, you see!
Now, ye wee bairns, I'll fess up to farting as much as fifty times in
a day and I believe myself to be a less than average farter.
Let's just think about those brothers that come from a vegetable
How many times a day do you think those birds are farting?
Ach, it's criminal!
Let's put this on a mathematical basis:
If every fart that is let go creates one square foot of farting energy
And if there are 6.6 billion people on earth today ( we are not going
to talk about the ancient farts at this point)
And if every one of those people farts twenty times per day (less than
half of the acknowledged standard)
There will be 121.2 billion cubic feet of farts introduced into the
atmosphere on any given day - disregarding Double Fajitas Fridays.
If the diameter of the earth is aboot 7926 miles
And the atmosphere is aboot 300 miles thick
Well, you can easily see that 121.2 billion cubic feet of farts has a
This is not politics this is math.
So, what is my point?
I would caution all of you to refrain from possibly ecoterrorist
It should not be hard, unless you are Polish.
What you eat today is what we breathe tomorrow.
Think about it!
(EAT RESPONSIBLY - FART FOR TOMORROW)
