Australia Blames Camel Farts for Global Warming

AFP: Wind of change: Aussie 'farting camels' cull under attack:

"The world's association of camel scientists fought back angrily on Monday over Australian plans to kill wild dromedaries on the grounds that their flatulence adds to global warming.

The idea is 'false and stupid... a scientific aberration', the International Society of Camelid Research and Development (ISOCARD) charged, saying camels were being made culprits for a man-made problem."

This sounds like the sort of parody you'd find in The Onion, but apparently it's real.

    While it is a serious subject, I cannot help but snicker just a little and ask myself if they plan to outlaw Foster's as well. Beer farts can kill, ya know.

  2. Dee, I'm definitely sensing some flatulent humans behind this camel-killing proposal.
