So, I’ve got this hypothesis that much of what is being extracted from the earth as natural gas isn’t a fossil fuel, but rather a biogas that’s being produced by subterranean microorganisms on an ongoing basis. Is it the same as biogas? I don’t know, but the Italians seem to be on to something. Our problems in the U.S. seem to be mainly the result of a habit of easy extraction and waste. For a long time, the oil industry wasted natural gas by burning it off. Now the natural gas industry is burning off components it doesn’t know how to use. Our inventiveness has atrophied.

Mobile sugar been and potato washing machinery. What a great job for an Albert Laroche kind of guy.
