Joelogon: Who. Run. Bartertown?/stupidmitter is stupid. This is a cool technology.
FloydA: for the practicality, for the technology, for the people who decided to do this, and for subby.
GAT_00: FloydA: for the practicality, for the technology, for the people who decided to do this, and for subby.It's not new. We use this all the time. Landfill caps for example allow methane to be captured and burned for energy. And I know this kind of energy production is used in places like Panama for farms, using animal waste.
GranoblasticMan: fark green, fark brown. Let's just go right to plaid.

It's still cool and interesting.
lack of warmth: According to TA, this is new to them. It is the first in that commonwealth, and soon their heads will spin when they find out about wind turbines and smart phones. They're still adjusting to no longer hearing that dial up sound.
Radioactive Ass: Digesters have been around for over 100 years. Massachusetts is just now finding out about them?
dragonchild: That means that the vast majority of the people in this state are young liberals, but all the money & property are owned by the biggest packs of NIMBY bigots (and their carefully indoctrinated descendants) that give the entire state an epic douchebag reputation. I'm not shocked that Massachusetts is 100 years behind the tech curve in something that would set off the NIMBY crowd so much as impressed that they actually made progress.
Huggermugger: How soon until Fox News claims that this kills a thousand migratory birds every month?
uttertosh: Oh, how quaint.. the u.s. is playing eco catch-up with us! Next y'all will be telling the world about this great invention of yours that captures wind and magially transforms it into, um, sorry.... *spoilers*You big bunch cutie-pies ^-^

lordargent: Almost there[25.media.tumblr.com image 432x424]
RedVentrue: This is a really good idea, but how about instead of mandating it from gov, removing the laws declaring digesters illegal and let the people build them by their own initiative?Big gov is big.
