*******www.newsy**** In the current race to lower greenhouse gas emissions, environmentalists are pointing to an unlikely culprit – the cow. National Geographic brings us the details… “Just one cow can produce up to 500 liters of methane gas a day. In fact the methane produced by the manure of a typical cow translates to a little over one and a half tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year. That’s about the same amount generated annually by a commuter driving to and from work alone each day.” (National Geographic) All this methane and carbon dioxide adds up. Discovery’s Planet Green reports that almost one fifth of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by raising cattle. “Cows create almost 20 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. Now that’s more than planes, trains and automobiles combined.” (Discovery Channel) Global meat consumption worldwide is on the rise, leading to these increased greenhouse gas emissions. Here’s FOX News with more… “Between 1970 and 2002, the annual per capita meat consumption in developing countries has risen from 24 pounds to 64 pounds.” (FOX News) ABC News Australia reports scientists are experimenting with ways to reduce methane production in cows. “There's a few different lines that the research is going down, some of it goes to different feed options, some of goes to breeding … there's also some work being done as to whether there can be bacteria that's actually put into the stomachs of these animals, that then reduces the methane that comes through their mouth.” (ABC News) MSNBC says legislators in the U.S. are proposing another way to limit the amount of cattle farmers raise. “There’s an idea being floated by the Environmental Protection Agency to charge farmers for each of their bovine gas producers—a cow gas tax. About $175 per cow, per year.” (MSNBC) But some farmers are outraged at the proposal. An Ohio NBC affiliate reports… (SWV) CowsGlobalWarming—Gas Tax (00:15-00:26) Ladd Hastings and his wife and business partner, Brenda, have 680 head of Holsteins. “The amount that we would have to pay for that—that’s—we won’t even make…our profit won’t even be that this year.” (WKYC) Should we be concerned about greenhouse gases produced by cattle? Is a cow gas tax an appropriate way to deal with this issue? Want to learn more?

Can Big Brother be green? Absolutely. If carbon dioxide were the planetary poison that global warming alarmists claim, then every aspect of our lives would be fair game for government control: the homes we build, the cars we drive, the light bulbs we use. Even the number of children we have—because lets face it; any reduction in CO2 that we achieve will be more than offset by the households our kids will create when they grow up.

Bicarbonate has beneficial effects on health Bicarbonate is a major element in our body. Secreted by the stomach, it is necessary for digestion. When ingested, for example, with mineral water, it helps buffer lactic acid generated during exercise and also reduces the acidity of dietary components. Finally, it has a prevention effect on dental cavities. Bicarbonate is present in all body fluids (see table) and organs and plays a major role in the acid-base balances in the human body. The first organ where food, beverages and water stay in our body is the stomach. The mucus membrane of the human stomach has 30 million glands which produce gastric juice containing not only acids, but also bicarbonate. The flow of bicarbonate in the stomach amounts from 400 µmol per hour (24.4 mg/h) for a basal output to 1,200 µmol per hour (73.2 mg/h) for a maximal output. Thus at least half a gram of bicarbonate is secreted daily in our stomach. This rate of gastric bicarbonate secretion is 2-10% of the maximum rate of acid secretion. In the stomach, bicarbonate participates in a mucus-bicarbonate barrier regarded as the first line of the protective and repair mechanisms. On neutralization by acid, carbon dioxide is produced from bicarbonate. A study has underlined that a dose of 6.17 g of sodium bicarbonate rapidly leaves the stomach with the liquid phase of the meal.

*******tinyurl****/DIY-chicken-coops Get tips and tricks from THE EXPERTS for Building and looking after your Chicken Coop. Strategy # 4. - Coop Ventilation: You may be wondering how to build a chicken coop that will not only keep your chickens locked up and protected from bad weather and predators yet receive the proper ventilation it requires. If so, then you already understand the importance of draft free air movement from within the coop. Chickens, much like humans, need fresh air and oxygen. The same goes for the removal of unwanted excessive moisture and carbon dioxide. A chicken coop with ample air movement and proper ventilation will help remove the ammonia build up and dampness that may grow inside its walls.

*******tinyurl****/DIY-chicken-coops Get tips and tricks from THE EXPERTS for Building and looking after your Chicken Coop. Ample air movement without a draft is essential. Fresh air brings in oxygen while excess moisture, ammonia or carbon dioxide are removed the stale air moves out of the house. Dampness and ammonia build-up are a sign that there is not enough ventilation. For small coops windows or vents on one side of the house usually provide plenty of ventilation.

The Kayapó Nation is composed of indigenous Indians living in the Amazon rainforest. The Amazon forest is increasingly threatened by deforestation caused by fires burning massive areas for agriculture production. Logging, gold mining, and dam construction are other serious threats. Because deforestation is one of the leading causes of climate change, not only does this loss threaten the survival of many indigenous communities such as the Kayapó, it impacts people the world over. Often called the "lungs of the earth," tropical forests help stabilize climate by absorbing the carbon dioxide. The destruction of forests is the second largest source of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.

As an aerial survey specialist, Daniel Juhn flies over the most beautiful places on Earth. He assesses forests and areas under threat. Forests are the "lungs of the earth" in that they release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, reducing greenhouse gases that cause global climate change. 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions come from the burning and clearning of forests, yet forests are cleared at about a rate of one acre per second.

Puerto Rico is widely known as the "La Isla del Encanto," which translated means "The Island of Enchantment." And while its beaches, tropical rain forest, and biolumescent bays are wonders of nature, the island is not without its problems. From energy needs to economics, Puerto Rico shares many issues facing the rest of the world. In this MicrobeWorld Video episode we talk with Nadathur S. Govind, Ph.D., Professor, Marine Sciences Department at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, and William Rosado, Marine Sciences Department at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, about the sustainable biofuel program they are launching in southwestern Puerto Rico. According to Govind, the island's successful sugarcane industry died in the 1990's. In fact, local rum manufacturers now import their molasses from as far away as Malaysia. As a result, approximately 70 percent of the population in southwestern Puerto Rico is on welfare. Govind believes he can rebuild the local economy by harnessing bacterial enzymes extracted from the guts of termites and shipworms (mollusks) found in the mangroves off the coast to break down the lignocellulose in sugarcane and hibiscus. The idea is that if he can bring agricultural production back to his community, he can use the crop waste to produce ethanol to supplement Puerto Rico's demand for fuel. And since the byproduct of ethanol is carbon dioxide, he also plans to use algae to capture the gas and produce biodiesel. The waste that he has left over can then be returned to the soil as fertilizer or given to livestock as feed, completing the cycle. For more information about Govind's program please read the article, "Combining Agriculture with Microbial Genomics to Make Fuels," found in the American Society for Microbiology's Microbe magazine.

IBM is announcing a major new study on the future of the trucking industry. Truck 2020 says that some of the traditional reasons for fleet purchases – such as the brand name of the truck – have gone out the window, and now there is incredible pressure for hybridization of trucks, which can cut costs and pollution. For example: 10,000 hybrid trucks on the road would reduce diesel fuel use by 7.2 million gallons per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 83,000 tons
