Cows (and people, for that matter) dont increase carbon based gases in the ecosphere over the equlibrium which has been established over the eons. The vegetation they would eat to produce this flatulence is just part of the recirculating carbon balance. The serious increases are from carbon sources which have removed or made unavailable over the millenia in the form of coal deposits, oil deposits, etc.
