chickenpoopers.jpgAs Republican leaders and their hillbilly masses chant “Drill baby drill,” the weed tolerant Dutch are innovating to achieve the country’s energy goals. Famous for centuries old windmills and huge networks of safe bike lanes, they’ve now “unveiled the world’s largest biomass power plant to run exclusively on poultry manure.” That’s right, chicken shit will be used to generate about 36.5 megawatts or “enough to power 90,000 homes,” while we’re stuck in the mud discussing how to drill in ANWR. Despite the torturous nature of factory farming, at least they’re using the amassing waste and more importantly, their brains to come up solutions. |Inhabitat|
