Farmers use food waste to generate electricity

If you missed this story from NPR, it's an encouraging look at what can be accomplished with new approaches to cleaning up the environment. The state of Massachusetts created a requirement to reduce commercial food waste dumping. It resulted in a new business opportunity for a company that makes technology to convert the waste into electricity. Farmers benefit by creating electricity for themselves and pumping it back into the electric grid, and the waste no longer creates greenhouse gases. It's a Win-Win-Win-Win and shows what can be accomplished with ingenuity and the political will to insist on change!
