Here is a cool website for a company that is generating energy from waste. I thought there might be some on this site that would be interested in this topic.

There has been some debate on this subject in MD in the last couple of years. Many who are against it say much of the "waste" being burned could have been recycled. If non-recyclables are fed into the waste to energy stream, there is less of a problem. In some areas where waste to energy has been implemented, recyclables have been diverted to keep the fires going. Also, some are concerned that toxic waste may find its way into the waste stream to be burned, possibly exposing the nearby population to hazards. MD has at least one plant in the works, which was supported by the governor ... and he was heavily criticized for his stance by some environmental groups.

I could certainly understand the concern that toxic waste may find it's way into the waste stream to be burned. I guess one would have to first identify a large enough and constant waste source that is safe for the process that needs to be eliminated.

NPR Needs To Clean Up Their House

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
