Minnesota Power & Poop Co., Inc. May 24, 2007

Heard today on NPR:“In Minnesota there’s a new kind of power plant: instead of using coal or gas, it will use tons of waste from thousands and thousands of turkeys and other birds.”

 

They’re close to the border, so Canadian Geese – a VERY prolific source of “fuel”, judging by my yard – are plentiful.

And, the cold winters and the cold springs and the cold autumns, and the cool summers that last about a week, all help to clog the noses of the humans with sniffles, so the overwhelming smells become tolerable.

Turkey Poo!
Yeah, those Canadian geese can really put out the fuel, can’t they? We used to not have them around here a long time ago.

Brenda, we have to develop a taste for Christmas goose again.

Sandy, no need to stockpile: they’re up to their teeth in it, 24/7. And because Adella is a proven specialist, I have told my sister in Minnesota to divert two truckloads of turkeys your way.

Turkey Poop! We have plenty of that at the capitol in St. Paul! Gov. Pawlenty has been putting lots out lately.
