Going to the MooLoo ( sounds like a song )

 

 

Cows can be toilet trained in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, researchers have said.

 In the study, which took place in Germany, scientists trained the animals to use a designated toilet. Their urine was then collected and treated.

The ammonia from cows' urine turns into the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide when it's mixed with soil.

Worldwide, about 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions from human activities comes from cattle.

Researchers attempted to teach 16 cows to use the toilet, dubbed the "MooLoo", at a farm owned by the Research Institute for Farm Animal Biology.

The animals were placed in the MooLoo pen and were rewarded with food for urinating. After this, they were then placed in an area next to the MooLoo and rewarded for walking into the pen and urinating.

Climate change: Young people very worried - survey

A new global survey illustrates the depth of anxiety many young people are feeling about climate change.

Nearly 60% of young people approached said they felt very worried or extremely worried.

More than 45% of those questioned said feelings about the climate affected their daily lives.

Three-quarters of them said they thought the future was frightening. Over half (56%) say they think humanity is doomed.

Two-thirds reported feeling sad, afraid and anxious. Many felt fear, anger, despair, grief and shame - as well as hope. 37% show reluctant on having children

Young people were asked their views on the following statement: The future is frightening: 75%

 
«I don't want to die, but I don't want to live in a world that doesn't care for children and animals»
(Young person answering survey)

The weather network again mentioned non stop lightning in London on Sunday evening.

10:30 pm Almost exactly 48 hours from Sunday and it is storming again. More lightning bolts but not strobe lights like Sunday.

My wife says someone is bowling again.

That's amazing that you're having such violent weather. Is that normal for Toronto? 

 

Sidebar- I want to go to Toronto sooooo bad! I'd love to live there for a while. 

Back to topic .....🙂

Rain has ended. No the weather is weird this year. It has been commented on by UN weather and even politicians that the weather  has 4Xs more storms than 50 years ago costing 7Xs the amount of damage.

I live 2 hours west of TO, although my oldest son lives there. No desire to live there.

About Quebec including the city. If you don't speak French especially Quebequa French then you may find yourself snubbed.

Reminds me of Line from My Fair Lady.

The French don't care what you say as long as you pronounce it correctly. Same scene as when he says about Americans doing opposite in not being able to speak English for years.👽

Oh and scene was during a rain event in London,  imagine that.❣️

I was just fine because my wife speaks French, my part was  just pointing fingers which donuts I want... and nodding  while saying Oui..Oui...LOL  :popcorn:

It did not rain while I was there...:D 

I did not know following: (learned something new)

You may be surprised to learn that Canada is outranked only by the United States as the country with the highest number of tornadoes. Tornadoes shouldn’t be confused with hurricanes; the two phenomena are very different.  A tornado is produced by a violent storm and is accompanied by lightning, hail and torrential rain.  Tornadoes make a rumbling or whistling sound and occur most often during the summer in southern Alberta, in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, in southern Ontario and Quebec, in the interior of British Columbia, and in western New Brunswick. They can move at speeds over 100 kilometers per hour and the winds can be strong enough to rip a home off its foundations.
