    It's actually the cows' front gas not the back gas that's causing all the methane. You can give cows a kind of seaweed mixed in with their regular food and it decreases the amount of methane they produce by a significant margin.

    Climate change is real just look out side when it snows or rains that's climate change and almost every animal farts methane and almost all humans fart methane yes I understand goats and pigs and cows have 4 stomachs but still IF GLOBAL WARMING (now climate change because it's all bullshit they change it all the time to suit they're needs) IS CAUSED BY METHANE FARTS THE WORLD WOULD HAVE ENDED ABOUT A MILLION YEARS AGO (not actual numbers just an estimate) yes humans and the way we live is harming the planet but it's like people who eat whatever they want and barely work out, yea it's bad for you but it's not like it's gonna kill you as long as you do it in moderation so don't go out and eat like 400 Twinkies in one day and you'll be fine is what I'm getting at and....so in conclusion what we are doing now isn't doing the planet much harm....but we can do better and start taking care of the planet a little more(which we already do logging companies for example plant a tree for every one they cut down)

    I may be wrong, but I don't think cows emit much methane in the form of farts. As a result of the fermentation in their stomach compartments (I believe it's primarily the rumen), they're big burpy gals, and emit a lot of methane when they belch, not fart.

    One other way to increase your maximum possible speed in the atmosphere is if you are willing to ABLATE some material as you go. This could either be the outer layers of a heat shield ablating away on re-entry to shed some heat during the peak re-entry burn, or it could be something like a liquid cooling system beneath the skin of an aircraft quickly boiling away as super-heated gasses that are vented from the craft to keep its skin temperature below material tolerances. Of course, any ablative scheme like this is ultimately temporary - you'll eventually run out of heat shield or coolant and either be forced to slow down, or watch as your craft's structure overheats and disintegrates. This is of course how larger meteorites reach the ground - they do immediately begin to burn up on entry, but they have a lot of mass to ablate on the way down, such that something on the scale of a mile-wide asteroid won't ablate that much of its mass before it hits the ground, even if it is coming down very, very fast.

    Well, lets see, in Far From Home spidey does make extensive use of 'tazer webs'. It's implied that the webs are doped with some kind of conductive material and the electrical pulse comes from the suit - but one does wonder if spidey could also be making some use of static charge buildup on his webs as he deploys them in order to help provide additional shock value.

    When you mention genetic modification of people on Mars. You are essentially talking about manufacturing humans. Am I not mistaken that this is banned on a global scale (earth)? Please correct me if I am wrong. Mars might be a different story since no one technically owns it as a property.

    We will never, ever "drop" a technology to reduce climate change. Stop eating meat, stop using cars, stop our industry... if we were a purely rational species with collective well being as our prime motivator, we would. We're neither rational, nor do we have those priorities. What (maybe) could be done is emphasis on replacement technology. I dont believe in getting people to eat/use "less" of the stuff... when has that ever worked? When have humans ever agreed to reduce their consumption of things they like for some vague future promise? In the long run, and I mean generations, we can maybe educate ourselves to be more economic. But we dont have that time. So in my mind, the only things that can be used to solve these issues are: new technologies that replace the old, that become economically viable and are quickly introduced. Good, long(er) working time and affordable electric cars (getting there, not quite yet), meat replacement products (especially lab-grown meat sounds promising) and less fossil fuels in our electricity production (large society investment would do it). If we focused on all of that, maybe we could reduce the impact of climate change... but we're not focusing on it and I dont see a massive change in sight, so... we're fucked.

    If we stopped eating meat from cows then because of their population numbers and how they would start increasing said population with no control it, would it no become more of a problem? More cows farting, burping and breathing seems to me to make the problem worse or are we going to cull the cow population in some way every few years? Those groups that complain about us eating them would not let us do that either so what would be a feasible solution??

    Hi Kyle, Big fan, Although you're absolutely right that cows produce a lot of methane (CH4) and that it's a particularly bad greenhouse, the methane they produce predominantly comes from burps rather than farts, approximately 90-95% whereas only approximately 5-10% comes form farts and manure. Although it appears a change of cow diets (to seaweed, onions or probiotics) could cause a 50% reduction in methane emission. Lots of interesting further reading here, if anyone's interested: ideas.ted.com/methane-isnt-just-cow-farts-its-also-cow-burps-and-other-weird-facts-you-didnt-know-about-this-potent-greenhouse-gas/ P.S.

    I know the whole reducing pollution has been on the table for a lot recently( ITS EVERYWHERE!) But like in the recent past the Modular Cell Phones actually took off.... being able to upgrade and replace the parts as new advancements came to be, and being able to recycle the old parts for further generations. Wouldn't this save from the massive digging and processing of fresh ore throwing tons of pollution from all the hands this said ore has to pass to become a product? (And maybe push for more efficient manufacturing processes and tech paths/breakthroughs even if harmful chemicals still had to be used to reclaim the recycled baser minerals) I apologize for the rambling run ons, it's late and my brain vomited. Also equivalent exchange, are mothers actually a philosophers stone? Or is the intake of nutrients that greatly increased during pregnancy to facilitate said unborn becoming of size for birth? FYI Love the show, keep it up Skelethor!

    Kyle, you missed one important factor for max speed in the atmosphere. That is altitude, i.e. the density of the air. Space craft go mach 20 at high altitude. If they went that fast near the ground they would burn up.
