Environment and alternatuve energy
« on: March 18, 2017, 07:38:54 AM »


If this is true - what a way to use unrecyclable wood*, paper and card! Huge termitoriums noshing paper and priducing clean gas for cars etc. They could be built underground and the cars parked on top!

Just don't build them out of wood . . .

* Untreated wood, no chip board etc.

Later: seems there is science behind it
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

But how much of that hydrogen can you get out of termites?

2 litres per sheet, but that would be slow if it took them 24 hours to ingest and digest that sheet. But, termites can come by the million - also a good source of protein, enzymes and minerals I believe. Termite burgers anyone?
