Jackasses cannot stop squandering your money

DURHAM – University of New Hampshire and outside researchers are creating a computer model to help organic dairy farmers cut greenhouse gas emissions such as methane, because Beano probably isn't an option.

Nitrogen- and carbon-based greenhouse gases are produced via a complicated system at dairy farms that is affected by everything from the weather to the soil to the feed to cow burps, among other things.

"Cows emit most of their methane through belching, only a small fraction from flatulence," said the project's principal investigator, Ruth Varner of UNH's Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space.

UNH has been awarded a $700,000 U.S. Department of Agriculture grant to create a computer model that measures the amount of greenhouse gases an organic dairy farm produces and thus provide ways to cut those emissions. More here:

That's right, we're running record deficits, can't pay our debts, the value of our currency is in the toilet and the government STILL CANNOT STOP squandering your cash.  Jeez, if I didn't know better, I'd think our politicians had total contempt for us.  Let me guess, some dumbass lib is going to write "it's just a drop in the bucket" in the comments.  Spare me, asshat.

The part I like best is how they're spending the money to try to convince you about global warming.  It's as if Climategate never happened.  Shhhh, that was a long time ago ... all our "scientists" are on the up and up now. And when they get their "scientific results" they're going to use them to justify taxing the ever-loving-crap out of you for everything you do.  Don't worry though ... they won't squander that money ... unless by "squandering" you mean create myriad agencies and bureaus so they can give their buddies high-paying jobs.
