On awakening today, a thought about landfills popped into my mind. I usually rail about hauling "garbage" off to landfills which will have to be dug up and recycled by future generations... but once oil becomes super expensive, as it eventually will, the mountains of garbage, mostly plastics, will become extremely valuable as fuel. Possibly within my lifetime, municipalities and private companies who own landfills might be getting rich off them. Maybe I should buy some cheap land and start my own landfill...
