Well, I've seen no citation where either of them actually said that in those exact words.  Cows produce methane which is non-toxic to humans, carbon dioxide is toxic - so the "garage' experiment is not a valid test.  Pollution and poisonous fumes are not the same things.  Closer to what they (and others) have said is that methane released worldwide by cows is estimated to be comparable to the amount of pollution released by cars and trucks, and that methane is more potent when it comes to warming the planet.  


True, true, true.   But it is funny (thanks kurtster!).  And it does hint at something that climate change/disruption activists have missed.

Climate emissions and health emissions are highly correlated.  

Reduce climate change emissions and one will end up with a healthier population.  A healthier population that is in a far better position to cope with deadly threats such as the SARS2 pandemic.  

——————————————-

In passing, harsh restrictions on natural gas flaring would have likely slowed the pace of the once frenetic shale oil  boom and created more social wealth for the USA instead of destroying social wealth.   Unfortunately, such regulations would interfere with the 'get rich quick 'n easy' and closely related 'freedom' narratives.

Contrary to accusations made by haresfur, I do not work under the influence of anything.

Dealing with crazy people (present company excepted) is best done sober and as lucidly as possible.


Without getting into an argument about potential longer-term residual effects of marijuana, I believe my point is that that I'm glad I no longer see the urologist who was busted for reckless driving under the influence of drugs with children in the back seat, whether or not he was high when he was blasting a green laser at my insides like a Jedi.

Yep.  When no one is coming through the door (Thanks, Joe !) you got to do something to stay awake.

You're basically correct.  It was a silly / semi serious meme and I'm in a mood ...

That said ...

Risks of Methane Gas Poisoning Exposure

Methane exposure, particularly when experienced in high concentrations, can lead to methane poisoning. While it is considered relatively non-toxic,

its primary threat is that it functions as an asphyxiant, similar to the threat posed by carbon monoxide exposure.

When inhaled, it displaces ambient air, thus depriving the body of oxygen needed to breathe. While low concentrations are generally not harmful, higher concentrations lead to less oxygen availability and a range of symptoms may be experienced, including:

  • Rapid breathing
  • Increased heart rate
  • Clumsiness and dizziness
  • Decreased vision, especially in low lights
  • Euphoria
  • Decreased alertness
  • Loss of memory
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Emotional responses
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fainting and collapse
  • Convulsions
  • Coma
  • Death

Symptoms will become more severe as the concentration of methane increases, and the period of exposure becomes more prolonged. Mild exposure over a period of days or weeks can often show relatively few physical symptoms, but still, have a dramatic impact on overall mental health. Long-term effects can include lasting cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological problems. Those who have been exposed are also at an increased risk of developing memory loss, depression, epilepsy, claustrophobia, and heart problems. 

Symptoms also onset and escalate more quickly when physical exertion increases (due to the increased oxygen needs of the body during physical activity). Prolonged deprivation of oxygen that can occur with methane gas poisoning can also cause permanent damage to the brain and the heart.
