One step in the right direction regarding methane

The New York Times reports today on what I consider a promising but entirely too isolated case of trying to do the right thing with our feed lots:
Rising in the fields of the environmentally conscious Netherlands, the Sterksel project is a rare example of fledgling efforts to mitigate the heavy emissions from livestock. But much more needs to be done, scientists say, as more and more people are eating more meat around the world.

This is a technical fix to a problem that were better solved by us all eating a lot less meat...but never look a gift pig in the mouth if it is helping the environment.
