Who knows where and when we might get a good idea.

This story is about some Australian researchers who got thinking about the problem of cow's burping and all the methane that is putting into the atmosphere.

Methane is a really powerful greenhouse gas, and it would be wonderful if we could cut down the amount that cows produce.

They decided to follow up some ideas about how the cow's methan could be reduced if they ate certain things.

These certain things were present in the mushed up grapes left over from wine-making.

And, they were right.
