Bullwinkle and Climate Change

bullwinkle8ow.jpgIt's not just cows; Bullwinkle's Norwegian relatives are being blamed for climate change too. Researchers say that moose emit 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting. Not only that, they have bacteria in their stomachs that create methane gas, an even worse greenhouse gas. A moose emits as much greenhouse gas in a year as a car driving 13,000 kilometers. ::Spiegel

Which is a real shame, because Tim Haab quotes Bullwinkle, who was a serious environmentalist:

Rocky: But Bullwinkle, there aren't any more woods.
Bullwinkle: You don't have to tell me, I'm the Chairman for the Frostbite Falls Society of Wildlife Conversation.
Rocky: You mean "wildlife conSERVation."
Bullwinkle: What'd I say?
Rocky: You said "wildlife conVERSation."
Bullwinkle: Well, somebody's gonna have to start talking about these things. ::Environmental Economics
