EPA to Roll Back Regulations on Methane

Continuing on their roll back of Obama era environmental rules and concurrent increase in environmental degradation, Trump and his cadre of imbeciles move the country backwards by allowing more methane into the atmosphere. Why is that a good thing? This one is so bad even parts of the oil and gas industry oppose it.

“The Environmental Protection Agency, in a proposed rule, will aim to eliminate federal government requirements that the oil and gas industry put in place technology to inspect for and repair methane leaks from wells, pipelines and storage facilities.”

“The proposed rollback is particularly notable because major oil and gas companies have, in fact, opposed it, just as some other industries have opposed the Trump administration’s other major moves to dismantle climate change and other environmental rules put in place by President Barack Obama.”

My Friend: "Ted I can't stand Trump!"
Me: "Why what did he do to you?"
My Friend: "He's made it harder to be a Black man in America!"
Me: "Shut the fuck up! I can't even wear a Make America Great Again hat in any City in the United States without getting my head busted open! WHile Cops sit there and watch with a stoic look on their face."
Him:" Yeah, ya'll really got it worse than a black man in 1930 America"(So he knows he's just being a jive ass potlical hack, AKA useful Idiot)
Then he continued...
"he's destroyed the Environment!"
Me: "When!? You mean he rolled back EPA regulations that killed small Farmers, while Big Farmers got Government funds to ease the burden of those oppressive restrictions?"
Him:"He's done more than that, he's destroyed the Environment!"
Me:"No NO NO! You're thinking of Obama he's the Mother Fucker who dumped Toxic Orange Heavy metal Mine waste in the Colorado River"

Him Yelling now at this point: "Fuck Obama! I'm not talking about Obama"
Me:"But you said Trump destroyed the environment, I told you the last major environment catastrophic event in America was under Obama"
Him Yelling even LOUDER NOW: "WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT OBAMA MANN!!!!! GAWD! Why do people hate Obama?"

I was more focused on the 12 beers for a hangout with a buddy. That seems like a lot, and it's Guinness. That would be like eating a whole turkey. I'd think a 6 pack would have sufficed.

Well you pussies aren't beer drinkers. I like BEER!
I brought 12, because we usually suck the first 6 down in the first two hours.
I usually hang out 5pm to about 10pm.

We work on music, play music, or mixing music one of us recorded recently.

Cows, as they produce a substantial amount of methane:

Cows emit a massive amount of methane through belching, with a lesser amount through flatulence. Statistics vary regarding how much methane the average dairy cow expels. Some experts say 100 liters to 200 liters a day (or about 26 gallons to about 53 gallons), while others say it's up to 500 liters (about 132 gallons) a day. In any case, that's a lot of methane, an amount comparable to the pollution produced by a car in a day.

Why ST. OBAMA!, the Protector of Environment, did not shoot all the cows is beyond me.

hmmm.. didn't realize Guinness had that low an alcohol content, just looked it up. I can't stand the taste of it, but I just figured it was closer to 6-7%. So it's not as many as I thought.

6 in two hours is pretty standard for me too. I don't mind the taste of my favorite beer, but to beer snobs it's shit - Busch Light. I'm also a taller guy, so I feel like even with quantity I can absorb it without feeling wasted. 6 craft beers (6-7%) would put most my shorter, light weight buddies on the floor in two hours. I'm 100% a beer guy though. Haven't had wine, shots or mixed drinks in over a decade. Maybe wine or champagne a couple times a year, one or two drinks.

That methane though. lol. Highjack over.

I think the best thing that has happened to Ameirca's beer market and the best thing that happened to Budweiser(after they turned into the McDonald's of Beer) is InBev buying them.

I like full bodied, full flavor beer. I don't care for the American light colored, flash fermented beer. We used to make great lagers and Pilsners but not any more.

I like Guinness, Saint Paulie Girl, New Castle, Weirstiener, Beck, ect. None of those beers give me a bad hang over. Save for New Castle, they go down like Iced Tea, and I pay dearly for it the next day. Drinking them as fast as they go down.

I also like Amber Boc, Shiner Boc, Anchor Steam Beer, and Samuel Smith Oatmeal Lager, and can do Samuel Adams and Yeingling if I had to.

I can't do Bud Light, Bud Platinum, Budweiser, Bush, and Miller and crap like that.
