Society needs to do a better job of keeping unimaginative in the box thinkers out of positions of decision making. They are fine with stay the course, everyday problems but when a crisis happens they need to be followers, not leaders. I would say that climate change, widespread drought and economic challenges constitute a crisis.

“How much human waste are you really going to be treating on your own property?” he asked. “It just sounds kind of nasty, and I don’t want to create a hazard to human health at my property.”...

This is such a commonly-held concept. Yet every person I have ever demonstrated the composting procedure to has said afterwards, "Wow! I was so worried it was going to be yucky! But, hey...there's no problem, is there!?"

Good article Joe. Perhaps our communities will wake up, especially with the drought conditions that are affecting so many places.

The Durango City Council is pondering whether to spend $55 million, deemed necessary by consultants, to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant to meet the state’s environmental standards for clean water.

But instead of investing more money in improving water-based toilet technologies, local poop visionary Jeff Wright, founder of Everything Dirt Composting, is advocating humanure – or the composting of human waste – as the No. 1 solution to the city’s No. 2 problem.
