From the Calgary Herald comes exciting news that New Zealand scientists are collecting sheep farts. The question of disposal springs to mind, but as the world is not actually warming, perhaps it isn't a huge problem.
As for our boffins - well we can't very well put them in boxes to measure their output can we?
That’s the question consuming researchers in New Zealand who hope that by measuring every belch and bleat of their sheepish subjects they can come up with a solution.
Researcher Peter Janssen says the project, in which the animals are kept in perspex — clear acrylic resin — boxes so that their emissions can be measured, has the potential to make a real difference in the fight against global warming.
