Another example of how the enviroweenies beclown themselves: " will convert 130,000 tonnes of dangerous gases each year into renewable energy". Jeez. "Dangerous gases" is enviro-speak for methane, only "dangerous" if you get too close to it with an open flame (as teenage kids have been discovering since long before the BIC lighter was invented). And the 130kt figure is a drop in the literal bucket compared to the amount of methane naturally farting itself out of the ground in places like Siberia and the Bearing Sea, among many other places on the planet. Good grief...

Hey Bill, Maybe you missed out on the part which said these two landfill sites are amongst the nations first approved carbon farming projects.This is a good news story. Why would you want to dump on it? In another ten years no one will be talking about this. It will just be.

Point one. Why not use the methane to generate electricity? Point two. How many tonnes of stored carbon in established CO2 chomping plantations will be destroyed because they do not meet the Carbon Farming Initiative of trees having to have been planted after 2007. Trees planted in over 650mm rainfall=not eligible. Trees not indigenous to the area =not eligible. Trees planted for profit -woodchips= not eligible. How much CO2 are these trees going to consume when they reach their maturity in 30-50 yrs and start producing CO2 as they break down. Not being harvested for 100 yrs. Sounds like the Greenies have Canberra cond again.Hey!
