Scientists in New Zealand have come up with a vaccine to stop cows and sheep from producing so much methane.
"Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, 21-times more powerful than carbon dioxide."
"In New Zealand, cows and sheep are believed to be responsible for more than half of the country’s greenhouse gases."
(I see Stins first wrote about this back in January, but this sounds like they've come up with the vaccine now, using a genome map instead of isolating bacteria.)
