Go Green, Eat a Kangaroo

Burps from livestock are responsible for 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions, more than produced from all forms of transportation combined, and part of the solution might be kangaroo burgers. The New Scientist reports:

Several ideas have been proposed to raise animals that are kinder to the environment. In New Zealand, researchers are testing different diets, food additives, vaccines and drug therapies, as well as breeding low-methane animals. One Australian team has even suggested we wean ourselves from cattle and sheep altogether and eat kangaroo instead - they do not emit methane.
