San Francisco is planning to begin testing a program to turn animal waste into electricity. Apparently, they determined that 4% of all waste going to landfills were animal feces. (Did someone count? Man, who drew that short straw?) So they will be collecting the waste and diverting it to a methane digester. The methane will be used to generate electricity.
Personally, I want full credit for coming up with the perfect name for this program:
Crap for Kilowatts!
Saudi Arabia, eat your heart out!
