It is my understanding that a small human family cannot generate enough waste, that you must have animals involved as well. What do you think?

Thanks David and I'm so thankful to discover the availability of your book. I made a cursory investigation of biodigestors/biogas last spring when I was trying to find a benifical solution to my critter waste disposal of my small dog kennel. [...] I gave up on this solution based on the amount of manpower effort the systems I found would take to process the waste and other factors like bringing the effluent to optimal temperature in winter months.
But on Sunday night, I was watching 60 minutes and they has a piece on Fuel Cell Electric Generators and the inventor remarked that a scaled down model for home use should be available in 3+ years for about $3000 that would make electricity from natural gas or BIOGAS. This could really change the equation and complement home electric generation by other means than expensive PV modules.

You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
