One of the more ridiculous schemes how to save the world – a candidate for your “Craziness of the week”, perhaps – is the POO POWER! project from Melbourne, Australia.
The guy who dreamed it up, Duncan Chew, must be playing a joke on our environmentalists – yet he is now laughing all the way to the bank, with this $45,000 grant from Australian Government green schemes:
Just think how manufacturers could rake in millions from government grants to design an automatic dog poo gathering machine. Face it - there's no way in hell human poo scoopers could gather up enough dog dump to power even one household electric oven per city.
There's Watts, Kilowatts, Megawatts, Gigawatts, Terawatts. Now, thanks to efforts from the green movement, we have the all-new Dogowatt! Poopiewatt? Maybe Stinkawatt?
It reminds me of the idiots in Congress that (awhile back) sent some Alaskan college millions of dollars to figure out how to harness the energy in the aurora borealis. Some sensible folks in the college tried to turn the money down... and failed.
