Tackling the methane from landfills


Sometimes, the simplest things work best. To Grist : ” Bill Clinton urged mayors at the Large Cities Climate Summit to go after a pollutant 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide: methane.”

” By capturing it from landfills, from which it leaches in prodigious amounts, cities could use it to generate power. Wrestling CO2 could take years, but harnessing methane could make a big difference and make it more quickly.”

Reducing greenhouse gases emissions AND generating clean electricity at the same time ? That sure sounds like a good idea. This reminds me we could do the same in farms. (Go to Fuel Fix for more)
