If perhaps you were wondering just how utterly clueless Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is when it comes to environmental issues, Pirro proved her complete lack of comprehension Saturday night when she maintained that Democrats want to try and regulate how much cows can fart.
During her opening statement, Pirro attacked the Green New Deal unveiled this week by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), which Pirro incorrectly said would eliminate travel by airplane.
And then Pirro moved on to bovine flatulence:
“My favorite part [of the Green New Deal] is where they seek a net zero greenhouse gas in 10 years. So you may ask why net zero as opposed to zero? The reason is that they are not sure they will be able to get rid of bovine flatulence.”
“I can’t believe I said that.”
Cows do indeed emit methane, which is a contributor to global warming, whether Pirro or her fellow Fox News talking heads choose to believe or not.
Perhaps realizing the complete folly of what she’d just uttered, Pirro then added:
“Aka, cows farting. These emissions from cows are of concern to the left because the bovine emissions have an environmental impact and the methane gas produced by the bovine flatulence contributes to the greenhouse gases that contributes to global warming.
“Need I say more?”
Actually, Jeanine, you haven’t said anything at all. You’ve merely used an illogical argument to try and bolster your ridiculous thesis.
Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump made a similarly absurd claim regarding the Green New Deal:
I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

Despite the whining from those on the right that climate change and global warming are no big deal, the scientific facts prove otherwise. And committing this country to dealing with the problem could create millions of new jobs and dramatically boost the U.S. economy.
Instead, Pirro and Trump are content to destroy the world they live in just so they can pretend they’re right about an issue they don’t even understand.
