You are sitting next to it!

Clean up the Climate and make Electricity!
Solve 2 problems with 1 action!


Every community worldwide has a pile of Solid Waste.

Within a year that Waste pile will start to make Gas/Methane.

What is your community going to do about the Methane?

>> Capture the Methane from your Garbage Dump. Get More Electricity.

SMALL Landfills – Capture the Methane And Make Energy, too.

How much Municipal Solid Waste is considered the size of
SMALL Landfills / Garbage Dumps?

It used to be I million – 3 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste-in-place.

slide 5 of the presentation

Now-a-days there appears to be no limit to the size of a “Landfill project to produce energy” as long as the people who own it can find
1. an end user for the gas or electricity
2. Funding for the project.

The Landfills/Garbage Dumps discussed in this post range from 360,000 tons to 2.8 million tons of waste-in-place.

fossil fuel is Ancient Waste. But, there’s Plenty of Waste Now!

replacing fossil fuel for energy uses


Are you already a Climate Victim/Refugee?
Are you concerned, upset, even paralyzed by what is happening to our planet Earth?
You don’t know what you can do to help?
You really have not figured out what is going on? So no wonder you don’t know what you can do?

Well, lets think about it this way……..

CH4 Investments, Urgent Need to Use the Methane in Landfills

One of the quickest ways to reduce Methane in our skies
is CH4 Investments = Methane capture – part of Landfill Gas (LFG).

CH4 is Methane!
Methane is half of the GHG in Landfill Gas (RNG).
Make Fuel or Electricity from Landfill Gas!
Save the planet, use the Methane. At least 1 Landfill a day, every day!

We take the Value from Waste and the Climate Cleans Up!

Landfill Gas projects Worldwide – – – Clean up the Air, Now!

We Need Many More!

Do you have “MSW to Gas and Electricity Garbage Dumps” in your country?
The World is covered with Garbage Dumps seeping Methane.
We need to capture it all and put it to work!

Cleaner Energy Investments! Time to invest in your Landfill!

Capture Landfill Gas – to Reduce Methane in the atmosphere, contain MSWaste and make cleaner Fuel on the Spot!

We have some very important investments to make
to USE the GAS in the World’s Garbage Dumps
described as a “Bridge Gas”- much cleaner than fossil:
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)

We Need To USE THE CO2! …..For Industry – Big Market!

10 of the Big CO2 users in the Market!
Some suffer from Shortages!

Bring down the CO2 and USE IT on the surface of planet Earth!
There is a big market for CO2 as FeedStock for many, many, many industries!!!

SHORT – R. Buckminster Fuller


Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we have been ignorant of their value.

Look To Garbage Dump Sites for the Energy We Need! Sure Fire!

There is so much Natural Gas being produced
on the surface of planet Earth in Dump Sites and Landfills!

Why is there a Crisis???

We CAN deal with the #1 Mistake: fossil fuel – Today

MOST “FUEL” COMES FROM BIOMASS!
ANCIENT OR NEW

and a MISTAKE is a MISTAKE

This is so simple!

fuel from OLD BIOMASS: Fossil Fuel is a MISTAKE!
It has been a MISTAKE for years!!


For some time now, it has been possible to
FIX THE MISTAKE!
with TODAY’S BIOMASS and WASTE

The “Relief” of phasing out Fossil Fuel! …Now!

“Fix it action” is possible, Now!
The posts* below, offer real actions we can take, Today.

YOU KNOW WHAT “MISTAKES” I REFER TO: “FOSSIL FUEL”
Maybe we should really start calling them “mistakes” for they surely are!

In the mood to phase out fossil fuel? – Governance

Yes, Governance! One of the ESGs.
WOW! So much is already happening, TODAY, to phase them out.*
– Solutions through the law

“The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first “do no harm”, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety….” Polly Higgins, 2015

“We need to change the rules.”
Greta Thunberg, 2019

Carbon Dioxide – Who else has Ideas to pull it DOWN and OUT?

DAC – separating CO2 from ambient air.
We need to try every idea !

Not the over-all subject of Carbon capture. Only DAC.

In this post:

A Retrofitted Cooling Tower DAC
A Jet Plane DAC idea
Some kind of DAC at the ends of earth
A little “D.I.Y.” DAC
….Is there money for this?
…Remember a list at the bottom of other posts about GHGs and Capture

Bhutan – ESG & the little Kingdom of Bhutan

This is the story of
ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) and
the little Kingdom of Bhutan

This is a cautionary story of success and urgency…………..
Bhutan is a “Carbon Sink”! They have already reached 2050 !
They continue to further their efforts. But they are part of planet Earth, so they suffer from the mistakes of others.

If all the World would make changes like Bhutan has……we would save Bhutan and the rest of us Humans!

In this post:
COP26,
Bhutan is a Carbon Sink.
How have they Reversed Climate Change? (REALLY!),
Bhutan for Life,
AgainA reminder about all that Bhutan has been doing
Come together at COP 26 and dance!

Too Much Methane! NOW! Is there a Solution?

This post was published in 2020. TODAY, there is a lot more information about Methane and the dangers, where it is and how much of it seeps into our atmosphere on a daily basis.

You want to know why Australia was burning up in 2020?
this is how I put 2+2 together…….
