image for Australian cattle feed invention equal to taking '100 million cars off the road' wins international prize

An Australian company was recently awarded a $1 million international prize for creating eco-friendly cattle feed that is said to be "equivalent to taking 100 million cars off the road.".

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)'s affiliate company Future Feed developed a cattle feed with seaweed that cuts down on the amount of greenhouse gases the animals emit into the atmosphere, according to Australian outlet ABC News.

The organization garnered recognition and was awarded the Food Planet Prize for its innovation, which Future Feed director Michael Battaglia said can virtually eliminate methane from cattle's bodies.

Methane is a greenhouse gas that has been proven to be the second-largest contributor to global warming.

Battaglia also emphasized the impact that introducing the feed on a large scale could have over time.

"That's equivalent to taking 100 million cars off the road.".

CSIRO-affiliated company Future Feed hopes to use its winning to help communities gain income from selling and growing seaweed through an international commercial fund, ABC News reported. »

After permit approved for whites-only church, small Minnesota town insists it isn't racist

Authored by

Despite a council vote officially approving the permit this month, residents are pushing back against the decision.

“No institution that proposes to exclude people on account of race is allowed to run an operation in the state of Minnesota,” Tribe said.

“The biggest thing people don’t understand is, because we’ve approved this permit, all of a sudden everyone feels this town is racist, and that isn’t the case,” he said. »
