In tiny New Zealand, it isn’t people who are causing greenhouse gas emissions, it’s the cows and the sheep.
So a country with five times more sheep and cows than people will impose a “burb and flatulence tax” on wandering sheep and cows. It would begin in 2025.
This is all in the name of fighting climate change, of course.
At a time when the world is facing a food crisis and famine in Africa due to inflation and the loss of Ukraine’s wheat crop, the greens want to punish farmers for producing food.
No word yet how they will keep count of the livestock’s farts.
How long, we wonder, before this idea comes to the United States?
