Gone in a flash

To the editor:

Concerning cows and the methane problem (“A penalty for polluting animals?” Journal-World, Feb. 10): Forcing farmers to pay a fee for each cow doesn’t eliminate the methane. What we need is a device that attaches to the cow, a device that ignites the methane as it is released. Immediately, literally in a flash, the dreaded methane is destroyed. The earth is saved.

Those poor farmers. They never get any breaks on taxes or subsidies from the government....

MAYBE WE COULD ISSUE EACH COW/BULL A BIC, THAT IS IF THEY ARE OLD ENOUGH.

This all begets the question of what happens to the device when said bovine finds the need to drop a muffin on the meadow? Do not both solid and gaseous effluent releases proceed from the same orifice?

Answer: Reusable lighters. One would have to hire a number of people to follow the cows around all day and night, and reinstall the device after the cow drops their load. Thank you, Lynn
