UK houses to be powered by poo

Paul Raven @ 21-04-2010

INHABITAT reports that a pilot scheme in Oxfordshire will see 130 homes supplied with biomethane derived from human fecal matter in sewage. Personally I think this is a great idea… but if we’re going to use shit to heat our homes, maybe we should try to find a way of harnessing the foetid power of political manifestos and campaign promises.

    Since “political manifestos and campaign promises” consist primarily of hot air, shouldn’t they be categorized as geothermal energy?
