  • Tokyo to double local electric power generation capacity

    The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is set to double the electric power generation capacity in the capital by 2020, officials said.

    The metropolitan government made the decision as the crisis at the tsunami-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant has highlighted the fragility of the power supply system.

    Tokyo will increase power generation capacity in the capital by 3 million kilowatts to approximately 6 million kilowatts by 2020.

    Farms all around the planet are becoming power plants run by natural gas extracted from animal excrements, while humanity considers dumping its own biological waste into rivers a sign of civilization.

    Think of how much energy is put into the process of bringing the food to the table (oil - fertilizers, transports, water & irigation, packaging, processing and so on, to be ultimately consumed and discarded by the human body.
