Elon Musk torched the Irish government for its initiative to kill around 200,000 cows in order to meet the European Union’s climate change goals. “This really needs to stop. Killing some cows doesn’t matter for climate change,” Musk tweeted Saturday. In its proposal, the Irish government would oversee the culling of 65,000 cows a year for three years, effectively reducing the national dairy herd by 10%.
