cow fartsEarlier this month the government of Estonia passed legislation that would have charged large farms, which house more than 300 cows or 2,000 pigs, around $5,000 each; claiming these gassy girls account for 18% of total greenhouse gas emissions.

But much like the felonious farts, the bill had little substance and was repealed Thursday after receiving widespread & well-deserved criticism. The whole point of penalizing a company for polluting is supposed to be environmental reform. But what’re these farmers supposed to do, invest in hybrid cows?
