Save the planet--stop cow belching

A new study will take on one of the biggest threats to the environment--methane gas that comes from cow belching.

A Swedish university received a grant to study one of the biggest threats to the environment--cow belching. The study will measure the amount of methane gas that is released through a cow's mouth and determine how much gas is produced by different kinds of feed. The release of methane gas into the Earth's atmosphere is considered one of the main causes of global warming. A group in Canada is also conducting a similar study.
