How the demise of Turkey twizzlers could power the world!

Apparently Sweden has been leading the way in the market of new biofuels (yes it's my day off so I got to listen to Radio 4's Kicking the Oil Habit this morning). They are determined to end the country's dependency on oil by 2020 which is fairly bold. As well as using car fuels made from crops such as rape and wheat among the fuels they're using is one which is made from slaughterhouse waste. Surely we would do better to emulate this innitiative with all the spare left over now that we're not feeding this stuff to children as Turkey Twizzlers!

Seriously, I think this country REALLY needs to think about being as RADICAL and bold. It seems so SENSIBLE to turning waste (not only animal waste but household waste too) into biogas.

If you want to know more, listen here.
