Fight Rising Energy Costs - Convert Food Scraps Into Methane
Yesterday I told you about a plan to paint cities and towns white to reflect the sun's heat and reduce the threat of global warming.
Now comes a plan to turn food wastes into methane. Methane that can be siphoned off and turned into energy.
What a great idea - presuming it works. We are all guilty of tossing away good, edible food, from our dinner tables. Restaurants trash food all the time - left overs from their customer's plates and excess food they've cooked but haven't served.
Imagine that food being turned into methane that could help power your car or warm your house or even turn on your lights. Brilliant!
We talk about issues like this and more weekdays at 5 PM New York time on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com
