Cow Burps and Pink Seaweed
Okay, I have some serious news for you today, everyone.
1.There's a type of a gas
that's being let out into the air.
A gas that's so dangerous
it's hurting the whole world!
Well, the dangerous gas is being let out by something ... (confused)
Farm animals? (SFX: cow / sheep sounds)
hey are letting out this awful,
dangerous gas with their ...
(confused) Farts and burps?
Oh! Come on! Ewww!
(Sigh) But hey, it's not their fault, right?
I mean, we all do it ... right?
Exactly… The problem is,
there are just so many farm animals, and every time
they fart or burp,
a tiny bit of this gas comes out into the air.
All of these farts and burps add up!
That's enough! We all get it!
3.But who's going to
save us from this dangerous gas?
We need a hero!
Move over Spider-man!
Outta the way Wonder Woman!
There's a new hero in town!
A hero to save the world!
Person A: It's a bird!
Person B: It's a plane!
3.It's… Pink seaweed?
it's a plant that grows in the ocean.
Usually it's green, but have you ever seen pink seaweed
Some farmers in Australia
feed their cows this special pink seaweed.
They found out that when animals eat this,
their farts and burps
have much less of the dangerous gas … 99% less!
The farmers hope that one day,
there'll be enough pink seaweed to feed all
the cows, sheep, and goats in the whole world!
(SFX: cow / sheep)
That would make a huge difference to our planet!
Do you feed your pets every day?
What should I feed my cat?
You can feed her cooked fish.
They fed their cows seaweed at the farm.
We visited a farm in Taoyuan.
You saved my life!
Cutting air pollution can save the planet.
It's not my fault that you're late.
I don't want to hear it any more.
We don't have enough seats for five.
Okay, I hope we have enough time to read the words.
