Every couple months, one of us will wonder aloud if anyone’s thought of a use for dog poop.  We pick up pounds of it every day; it would be nice if it could be put to use.

Well, now there is!  According to the Desert Sun, the Denver Zoo has retrofitted a 3-wheeled Thai taxi cab known as a tuk-tuk to run on animal waste.  The pelletized waste is heated on board until it releases a combustible gas, which is burned in a generator that charges the electric vehicle’s batteries.

Of course, this is million-dollar technology.  Can we fit that in the Palm Desert City budget for next year?

    The Denver idea is clever. Probably stinky, no? Dog poo is such a big problem all over the world. Most people are GoodOwners. It’s unfortunate that the few BadOwners out there are causing such a stink. http://www.facebook.com/BadOwner.org
