Hello BESTers,

   This article is a follow up from last week about biogas being 
encouraged in Botswana.  It describes the pursuit of Matthew 
Nyatshane to develop biogas for home use in his country.  Small 
home digesters have huge potential in developing areas where 
deforestation for firewood is rampant and access to fossil fuels 
is infeasible and unsustainable. Small digesters have been used 
with much success in India where many people rely on it for 
cooking, heating, and lighting.  Sustainable energy allows 
developing nations to leapfrog current developed nations that are 
crippled by fossil fuel dependency.  Biogas truly is power by the 
people for the people.

Have a good weekend,
Ryan
