I agree, reusing garbage may be the best way to go for alternative fuels. More and more biofuels are being developed that don't interfere with food sources, as DN has covered lately: those links are given at the end of this article.

Biofuels have been a really popular government sink hole lately with $1+ per gallon subsidy.  It has caused food shortages worldwide and the farms around my home are filled with this worthless corn and soybean.  The GMO aspect destroys our bee population and polutes our gardens with the blowover.

But garbage fuel I like!  Keep thinking of ways to utilize our fantastic garbage resource!
