Hickenlooper on climate change


Hickenlooper did find one way to stand out from every presidential candidate ever to interview with the Register editorial board: He’s the only one we can document to speak about flatulence.

He was tooting — or we should say touting — an unorthodox idea to use a feed additive for livestock that would cut down on greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

The additive, he said, would work like Beano, an anti-gas product marketed for humans.  “… You eat it before you go have Mexican foods and eat a lot of legumes and beans, and it keeps you from generating gas. It keeps you from farting, to be very blunt.”
