Happy California Cows In Trouble With Regulators
California cows are apparently very happy these days. In fact they're so happy that they've recently been named as the number one source of air pollution.
It's the cheese, some would say, but regulators believe differently. It's the gases cows release.
Environmentalists contend the problem is worse than the regulators claim. The Center for Race, Poverty and the Environment has challenged deals struck by the USEPA with cow farmers. Newspapers are writing opinions on the issue. Lawsuits have been filed.
Farmers, on the other hand, are working to protect their livelihood. They're even trying to sell the stuff to cut down on pollution.
How are the cows taking it? They're in the news, they've taken to the airwaves, started fund raising with a calendar, and even started an art show.
