"Jenkins had done the research and paid money to have tests done, which has indicated that handling human waste as he tells you confines the material to where you want it confined, and it doesn't escape.
The problem with many ideas like this is that they make sense and are low-cost. Few people and fewer companies want to spend a lot of research money on something that isn't going to provide profit. It's the same way with herbal medicine: no drug company does research on it when they can make chemical meds that they can charge $150 for a 30-day supply. There may be a bush that cures every kind of cancer known, but without solid (and expensive) research, we won't know about it.
If the Bill Gates of the world would put some money toward things like this (instead of $30 million toward an inaccessible seed vault buried in ice), it would probably kick some of the common-sense, ecologically-sound ideas of the world right out into the center ring of common knowledge."
Just because something hasn't been scientifically proven does not mean that it doesn't work nor does it mean that wedo not know that it works. Also, just because there are scientific studies "proving something works", it does not mean that the scientific studies were right or unbiased. To assume that things must be scientifically proven takes away the ability of the common man to decide for him or herself. Yes we are talking about pollution and public safety, but "science" and the powers that be support septic fields out here, which we know work poorly when it comes to keeping contaminants out of the ecosystem. Have you seen the septic lagoons for most prairie cities? Some canadian places have also been dumping raw sewage into the rivers and oceans. BUT somehow outhouses are suspect. Might that be because I have control of my outhouse but the government has control of the rest? The government and their scientists have told me that it was ok to live near areas they chose to defoliate with agent orange. They tell us it's ok to get sprayed with malathion. They say it's ok to put proven toxins into spray scents and body chemicals of all sorts. I do not trust them anymore.
I want to be clear here. I am not upset with the person who posted the above quote. we are told constantly that unless THEIR scientists "prove" something it isn't true. Think Human causes of climate change. 97% of scientists believe that we are exacerbating climate change, but the government listens to their 3%. We need to start thinking for ourselves, and not allowing them to price us out of the control of our own lives!
I live on the west coast of canada and am told that one of the reasons we have such phenomenal tree growth here is that trees will actively grow anytime the temp is above 3C.
Most fastgrowing trees are voracious feeders. Cmfrey could also be planted beside the treebog. It can be fed straight urine and not burn.You could harvest the comfrey 4 times a year[ just as it comes into bloom,] and then use it to fertilise your garden, or kickstart your comopost pile.
The favorite method of dealing with this that I've seen or heard of is the shallow temporary outhouse system. dig a shallow hole, when it's half full cover with the removed soil and plant a tree into it.. I might plant comfrey on the north side of the hole to help soak up the excess.
