AOC Pulls Our Finger

The Daily Caller:

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s newly-released “Green New Deal” resolution has gotten a lot of attention for its 100 percent renewable energy goal, but the bill also vaguely references another source of emissions.

The resolution calls for a World War II-style mobilization effort to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural operations. If that’s the case, that means any subsequent “Green New Deal” legislation would have to deal with a major source of methane emissions — cow flatulence and burps.

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” reads the initial version of the resolution’s fact-sheet. However, Ocasio-Cortez staffers have since removed “farting” from fact-sheet.

It is almost unimaginable to me that efforts to regulate flatulence continue.  I have written about this seriously and humorously.  This is simply beyond reason.  They’ve wanted my gun for years – they certainly want my several V-8 engines (all Hemis BTW!) – and now they are setting their sites on my steak?!

I don’t think this deserves a reasonable response – so I’ll just leave it up to Monty Python.

Postscript: Instapundit reminds us why Iowahawk is the funniest guy on Twitter.
