The EPA needs an overhaul! This is the stupidest tax yet in a long line of idiotic taxes imposed. One belch from a volcano produces more gas then every cow on earth - tax the volcano!
The entire government needs a house cleaning, from top to bottom!

Hmmm. I wonder if the millions of Bison that roamed the Great Plains for thousands of years contributed to Global Warming? Taxing meat producers is just about the most far-fetched notion on this issue I've ever heard. And where does it stop? Guess we'll have to tax the contestants of hot dog eating contests and similar events. Pretty silly.

We could pay off the national deficite by taxing the politicians every time they open their mouths. They produce more harmful gas when they talk than all the bovine in the history of the world!
Really...this HAS to be a sick joke!

Camelot Lyrics:
"It's true! It's true! The crown has made it clear.
The climate must be perfect all the year.
A law was made a distant moon ago here:
July and August cannot be too hot.
And there's a legal limit to the snow here
In Camelot.
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September
In Camelot."

What's next? Will we be taxed? There are more people than cattle in the US. Will we be turned in and ticketed for letting gas or belching then given a fine? Or will the EPA start taxing everyone? LET'S GET REAL! EPA, this is really a DUMB move charging a fee for cattle flatuence. My husband wants to know about all the OLD FARTS out there.

So even if this were to pass, how exactly does the extra money help to clean the air? Ridiculous at best.

I was thinking the same thing, is this an April Fool's Day joke? The idea of this kind of tax is so ridiculous it's laughable. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they aren't serious about this!!!
