That's Bullshit !!!

Japanese Make Gasoline From Cattle Dung
By KOZO MIZOGUCHI, Associated Press Writer-

Scientists in energy-poor Japan said Friday they have found a new source of gasoline — cattle dung.

Sakae Shibusawa, an agriculture engineering professor at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, said his team has successfully extracted .042 ounces of gasoline from every 3.5 ounces of cow dung by applying high pressure and heat.

"The new technology will be a boon for livestock breeders" to reduce the burden of disposing of large amounts of waste, Shibusawa said.

About 551,155 tons of cattle dung are produced each year in Japan, he said.

Maybe we could set up a similar operation right here in our own White House. There's certainly no shortage of dung there.
