The Power of Poop (Video on Climate Change)
Cute film. Alan, I think the logic here is that the poop is being produced anyway and that the resulting methane is currently being added to the CO2 from burning fossil fuels.We can reduce the methane by reducing the number of animals producing it OR use the methane to REPLACE some fossil fuels which will still produce some CO2 but it will have reduced the amount of methane released to the atmosphere in the process. In other words, we won't have BOTH gases adding to the problem at the same time. It isn't of course, the entire solution, only one small part of it.
