Be proud, California -- we're the stinkiest. Mother Jones last week pointed out that we rank #1 for dairy cow emissions (ah, no wonder happy cows come from California).

Now it should be said that the report, analyzed and presented by Santa Monica-based ProCon.org (they nicknamed it the "Fart Chart"), is from 2009 based on even earlier data, but we thought it be still relevant today, considering that L.A. is a cheese-loving and alternative energy-debating kind of town.
