poopy power!

a dog park in cambridge, massachusetts has a lightpost powered by poop. yeah, you read that right.

patrons of the park deposit dog doody into the airtight methane digester, which  produces methane gas when stirred, which is burned in the old-timey lightpost next to it. the dog park stays lit, animal waste stays out of landfills, and the dangerous methane stays out of the atmosphere. how's that for the coolest science project ever?

Dat's a grate example of how them methane waste digesters werk. Imagine what we could do wif all da litter boxes in all da howses in Americky!
