Need a reminder that you’ve got it good?
The Ethiopian Government has come up with a scheme to solve two pressing problems. First, the capital’s hydroelectric power plants are producing less power due to decreased river flows and extreme weather events. (The Ehiopians blame climate change for that, btw.) Second, landfill is getting enormous.
So they’re about to develop a power plant next to Addis Ababa’s largest rubbish dump. Instead of coal, gas or diesel, this plant will burn garbage.
That might solve two problems at a stroke. Herald of War hopes so. He’s trying not to imagine what will belch out of the smokestacks of Trashburner #1. It will require scrubbers that can only be described as “bodacious”…
Herald will get back to his daily work now, thankful he does not need to burn his garbage to survive.
