Build power generators near large
dairy farms in the Central
Valley. Use the manure from the
dairy to produce methane fuel.
The dried manure could also be
burned, leaving no toxic residue.
Sewage treatment plants have been
using methane from the treatment
process as fuel for years.
Cows with tubes, etc.
