Re: Boat People Scum

If technology could be developed to virtually eliminate toxic emissions from burning waste, I think it could be a very good solution. It is essentially recycling in the form of using waste to create energy. Some plants make heat, others make electricity (essentially from heat). Based on our ability to create waste, it's practically indefinitely sustainable.

The present problem with trying to recycle waste back into consumer products is the math doesn't work and/or we don't have the need for as much source material. Now that China won't take it, we're all backed up.

I say invent a way to capture the emissions and burn it all.
