The argument here is pig and cow farts are much worse for the environment than driving an SUV. So, some Norwegians are proposing an animal tax to deal with the problem. Not a bad idea, though this would never fly here in the states. Here, we subsidize all things meat related and have been for the past 75 years. The cost of a hamburger really should be about $10. Instead, it’s $3. There’s your tax dollars at work.
