A VW Beetle car that runs on methane, generated from human excrement, has been developed in an attempt to encourage sustainable motoring. The BBC‘s John Maguire has been to the Avonmouth sewage treatment plant near Bristol, to see the car, and learn about the process for powering it. Mohammed Saddiq, of sustainable energy firm GENeco who developed the vehicle, talked to him about the car’s benefits.

Strange Random Ecology Quote:

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” – Albert Ellis (American Psychologist and Writer, b.1913)
