Wrong. Cows produce methane yes. But ground that has no plant life cover produces 10 times the amount of carbon dioxide methane and other hazardous chemicals into the air that cows do. There's a recent study that shows that if you get a bunch of cows and or Buffalo to march across the land to tear up the soil and leave behind droppings, a huge pound of natural plant growth will happen naturally and immediately. Covering up arid soil that would otherwise turn to Desert and stopping the huge amounts of hazardous chemicals that are being produced anywhere that there is no plant life. Cows are the solution not the problem

I would have to kill myself if I was stuck on that highway. I live in San Antonio where all the people from California keep moving here and our highways are completely overcrowded what used to take me 12 to 15 minutes to get to work now takes me almost 40 to 45 minutes to get to work and I can’t stand it. :(
superapple4ever (26 days ago)
Man I can’t wait to get my low gas mileage large engine American car and drive down the highway about 5 miles to my barber shop and have a Budweiser and a cheeseburger.

Phillip Habsburg (28 days ago)
This video is very misleading. For instance he claims Chinese are rich which they are not. The average Mexican gets paid more than the average Chinese......
Bustamoo (27 days ago)
Phillip Habsburg Claims they’re now “somewhat rich”, which in many cases they are, as they’re ranked 72nd out of 188 countries for GDP per capita. Richer than 116 other counties. 🤷‍♂️
