In just 6 weeks agriculture will start the voluntary reporting of the bullshit emissions as calculated using the science defying logic of the Ministry of Bullshit. This is a new ministry that encompasses the Ministry’s of Climate Change issues, Climate Change Negotiations, Environment and Agriculture. The Ministers of Bullshit are jointly, Nick Smith, Tim Grosser, Kate Wilkinson and the hapless David Carter. These people are well suited to the job.
The emission factors that are to be used by processors to determine the carbon liability are;
|Stock type/class||Emission factor per tonne carcass weight (Tonnes CO2e per tonne slaughter weight)||Emission factor per animal.
(Tonnes CO2e per animal)
|Adult sheep: ewes & wethers (26kg)||15.7||0.30|
|Stags less than 80kg||8.2||0.77|
|Stags greater than 80kg||17||0.77|
|Poultry excluding layer hens||0.5||0.00|
|Stock Class||Emission factor per tonne MS or butter fat
(tonnes of CO2e per tonne of MS or butterfat)
|Bovine per tonne MS||6.14|
|Goat per tonne MS||2.69|
|Sheep per tonne butterfat||7.61|
|Layer hens||0.007 tonnes CO2e per hen|
