    The Swedish sheeple don't debate things, they simply obey their government's edicts.

    Does burning garbage create pollution? Does pollution not create more problems?

    • Water- and soil contamination
    • Massive methane emissions
    • Hive of disease organisms and vectors

    A cogeneration incinerator certainly sounds preferable to a literal heap of useless, hazardous shit. Of course incineration releases some hazardous elements and fine particles into the environment, but modern emission control designs have made the health- and environmental risks posed by incineration negligible compared to those of, for example, a coal-fired power plant.
    You input waste, and out comes heat, electricity, and ash composed of highly-prized elements. Other than having been proven to be highly efficient by "Scandinavian sheeple," what do you see wrong with this approach to waste management? Why do you see landfills as the better choice?

    That was "Swedish sheeple." And your pollution controls are more expensive to maintain than the energy you get out of incineration.

    I have never believed in landfills. I believe in throwing all trash into big piles so that people and animals can sort through it and find goodies, and let nature take care of the rest.
