Methane "burns" in clean fuel cells, making energy and producing CO2 which is 20 times less of a greenhouse gas. If the math works out (does a landfill site produce enough MW of power?) it looks like a good idea."
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be
lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
