THIS ARTICLE IS TITLED “One Scientist’s Ambitious Plan to Achieve Global Cooling With Cattle” with the sub-title, “Cows could be a climate change solution—if we take the science seriously.” Written by Farmer Georgie, it appears on the One Zero publication on Medium (August 17, 2020). Here are the first few paragraphs:

“Farts are funny. Burger King thinks yodeling about cow farts is even funnier. In mid-July, the fast food chain released on Twitter an ad campaign starring boot-stomping kids, led by Mason Ramsey of Walmart Yodeling Kid fame, singing about cow farts contributing to global warming and claiming that lemongrass can reduce methane in those farts by a third.

If that doesn’t pique your ecological interests, then I surely don’t know what will!
