 [A title="Permanent Link to Kangaroo farts to save the world?" href="http://yeinjee.com/discovery/kangaroo-farts-to-save-the-world/" rel=bookmark]Kangaroo farts to save the world?[/A]

 [DIV class=postmeta]According to Australian scientists, Kangaroo farts might play a big role in fighting global warming.

[DIV class=postentry] Thanks to a special bacteria in their stomachs, kangaroos do not emit harmful methane gas when they let off a stinker. Australian scientists are now planning to transfer that bacteria into cows and sheep to make their flatulence eco-friendly.

 It will take researchers about three years to isolate the bacteria before they can think of a way to transfer it to other animals.

 Methane is the principal component of natural gas, and also a potent greenhouse gas that could trap 25 times as much heat of carbon dioxide of the same mass.

 With billions of cows and sheeps worldwide… the methane released from their fart could have serious impact on global warming.

I think the guy forgot to add the grocery cart on the back, therefore he could steer properly. lol

[/p]Is it possible to transfer this bacteria to my friend Bob?  He releases more methane than any cow.

Air car - runs on compressed air - of course you need electricity to compress the air but in BC we have hydro so this is very close to a pollution free car. It won Time magazine's invention of the year.

Ever wonder how they have sex?  I'm thinking that big stocky tail would get in the way ...

Porcupines don't actually touch - the male sorta rears up and sprays the female prickly lass with - well you know.

      Er...... no, I've never wondered about them having sex. I don't know about their tail getting in the way tho.... BTW, I've eaten the tail and they're bloody tough.

  As for porcupines, aha - I've heard about it. Poor dudes. At least they don't get eaten like the praying mantis. The dude gets eaten after sex by the female.
