    A smelly and slippery spill involving human waste caused traffic to back up for miles along Interstate 81 in Cumberland County on Monday. It further snarled traffic in Carlisle and on other nearby road. The spill occurred before 9 a.m. and caused a motorcyclist to skid out of control and crash in the southbound lanes near the Hanover Street exit in Carlisle. A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation crew that was doing routine cleanup nearby was called to the scene and determined both southbound lanes needed to be closed, PennDOT spokesman Fritzi Schreffler said. It took several hours to clean up...

    With shortages of power and rising costs of fuels, Embu prison in Kenya has turned to human excrement to generate power. Bio-gas now fuels three boilers in the prison kitchen, and firewood costs have been cut down by more than half. Many hope the innovative form of recycling and generating power could be applied in not only all prisons across the country but also in other institutions to significantly reduce energy bills. Waste not, want not To generate power, human waste is put into a machine called the "digester" and bio-gas is produced by bacteria during a 30-day fermentation...
  • Stinking up Wall Street: Protesters accused of living in filth as shocking pictures show one....

    This are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York's financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions. Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car. Elsewhere we found piles of stinking refuse clogging Zucotti Park, despite the best efforts of many of the protestors to keep the area clean. The shocking images demonstrate the extent to which conditions have deteriorated as demonstrations in downtown Manhattan enter their fourth week.

      Mike Wallace interviews Margaret Sanger. December 3, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In 1957, an aging Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and the international birth control movement, agreed to an interview with CBS News’ Mike Wallace. In stark contrast with the sympathetic reception Sanger could expect to receive today in a network television interview, Wallace hammered Sanger with difficult questions and caught her in contradictions, while Sanger squirmed, fidgeted, and denied statements she had made only a week earlier in pre-interview discussions with CBS staff.This fascinating and sometimes chilling interview with Sanger can be found at the website of the...

    Obama just came on television in the form of a commercial touting 'health care'. According to Obama in the commercial, passing health care will result in no negative consequences at all. In fact, passing the health care bill will result in no change to your current benefits. 1) I have never seen a sitting President advertise in commercial form for the passage of an active bill on the floor. He is wrapped up in this thing like a cocoon and must do anything to see it pass. Did we ever see GW advertising for his amnesty bill? BTW, who is...

    SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) – The U.S. city of San Antonio unveiled a deal on Tuesday that will make it the first U.S. city to harvest methane gas from human waste on a commercial scale and turn it into clean-burning fuel. San Antonio residents produce about 140,000 tons a year of a substance gently referred to as "biosolids," which can be reprocessed into natural gas, said Steve Clouse, chief operating officer of the city's water system. "You may call it something else," Clouse said, but for area utilities, the main byproduct of human waste - methane gas - will soon be...
  • Clean Water and Oceans

    Though much has been done to clean up our waters, much work remains. Sewer overflows and runoff from farms and city streets threaten the life-sustaining properties of our waters, endanger human health and wildlife, and result in thousands of beach closings each year. NRDC works to continue reductions in industrial water pollution while pressing for effective pollution controls on agriculture, logging and other sources previously exempt from them. We help develop and promote strong federal laws and regulations to address polluted runoff, raw sewage discharges, and factory farm wastes and we sue polluters when they violate the Clean Water Act.

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Four former inmates sued the private company that runs the Citrus County jail, alleging two former officers put human waste in their food and drinks. The inmates were subject to cruel punishment, torture and battery in 2004, when they were forced to eat the food contaminated with urine and feces, according to the federal lawsuit filed Friday in Tampa. A spokesman for Tennessee-based Corrections Corporation of America said the company took action once they heard about the incident at the Citrus County Detention Facility. "Management immediately investigated and terminated three employees right there and then," company spokesman...

    CHICAGO -- Another personal injury lawsuit was filed Monday against the Dave Matthews Band connected to an incident last summer where a tour bus believed to belong to the band dumped human waste onto a boat of architectural sightseers. The latest lawsuit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court by attorneys for Michael Scarpelli, Denise Scarpelli, Anthony Scarpelli, Lisa Panaro, and Larry Panaro, against the Dave Matthews Band and the alleged driver of the bus, Stefan A. Wohl. The suit claimed that at about 1 p.m. on Aug. 8, Wohl was driving a Dave Matthews Band bus to a hotel...

    Illegals Face a Gauntlet of Doom: The Border Patrol Faces Dopers, Terrorists, and the Desperate Victims of Coyotes. The 2,100 mile southern border of the U.S., with its treacherous mountain ranges, canyons, rivers and deserts, has become an uncontrollable stretch of violence, death, rape and exploitation. Over a decade ago, SOF rode with Border Patrol Agents in Arizona when the situation already seemed out of hand. One of those agents, now retired, recently contacted SOF with a disturbing and frustrated update, reflecting the deterioration of the Mexico-United States border. "In my career, spanning three decades, many of my friends and...

    It's not an unusual sight. And it's not a pretty sight. Plastic jugs filled with urine are becoming a common sight along the highways, particularly at freeway interchanges. "You wonder what's happening in our society," said Karen Cagle, who supervises highway cleanup crews in Eastern Washington. From March 4 to Nov. 27, 2002, one Adams County highway cleanup crew picked up 2,666 jugs of urine and 67 bags with human excrement in them. That's just one crew out of about 40 crews working in Adams County, and Cagle hasn't yet tallied the results for 2003. But the problem isn't limited...

    TAKE A WALK down the Suburban Station steps to the patio at 16th Street and JFK Plaza and you'll find yourself in a wasteland of wasted humans and human waste. There's pee on the patio. Pee on the walls. Pee in the hot summer air. And something much stronger than a pee smell emanating from one fly-swarmed corner. Poop. What used to be an oasis of planters and picnic tables for SEPTA commuters is now a thoroughly-trashed hobo camp where the homeless eat, sleep, urinate and defecate amid their bedrolls and their junk. Inside the Suburban Station concourse, commuters can...

    The contents of a Human Waste Packout system are displayed at the Bunny Flat Trailhead at Mount Shasta, Calif., Friday, Sept. 13, 2002. The large target is held down by four rocks. After use the target is sprinkled with cat litter, that comes in the paper bag at right, rolled up and placed in the paper bag, which is put in a plastic bag to be packed out. On Mount Shasta and at a growing number of national forests and parks across the West, climbers are being asked to bag more than peaks as they take the "leave no...
