While the very-do-gooders go around shouting loud and often about the dangers of man-made global warming and greenhouse gas emissions, they are strangely silent about another significant (and definitely not man-made) source of emissions.

Bovine-based emissions are a major source of pollution.

Yet it often seems like a case of See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil about cows farting out vast quantities of noxious methane.

However, New York university has funded a ‘climoji’ arts project – which has come up with the above image to ‘encourage conversations’ on the issue.
