Imagine that. You have to admire the talent and scientific acumen required to determine that a moose burp affects the earth’s climate. What a genius. He must be related to the guy who figured that if we all change our clocks we’ll have an effect on the global climate. Frankly, it’s intimidating knowing that there are such smart people walking the streets. Here it is under Global Warming Fears, Norway’s Moose Population in Trouble for Belching.
The poor old Scandinavian moose is now being blamed for climate change, with researchers in Norway claiming that a grown moose can produce 2,100 kilos of methane a year — equivalent to the CO2 output resulting from a 13,000 kilometer car journey. Now poor moose are being blamed for global warming.
Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.
