Park Lamps Fuelled by Dog Poop

I don't quite know how we let this one slip through the net but many thanks to Fox News for the following article about how Cambridge Park, Massachusetts, has trialled
a means of converting dog waste to energy. As Fox News sums it up:

"It stinks and it's a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side".

Being the US, this is, naturally, mixed with art. The project is the idea of artist Matthew Mazzotta. I could go on but feel that a quick viewing of the video will have the desired effect.

Read the full report here.

Of course, in the UK, we think small and can, therefore, bring it right back down to earth. This has been achieved by Pat Barker in Penge, South East London, who wrote the following letter to the Bromley Times:

Thanks, Pat, you've injected the British spirit into the situation!
