British military turns to horseshit

Quite literally, actually:
Bio-fuel pellets made from horse manure will help power the new barracks of the Royal Horse Artillery, the Ministry of Defense announced.

Recycled waste and bedding from the regiment's 111 horses will provide enough low-carbon energy to cover the heating and lighting requirements of the ceremonial unit's new base in Woolwich, southeast London.


The King's Troop, an equestrian unit that performs ceremonial duties on state occasions, plan to move to their new headquarters in November 2011.
Yeah, and while it's nice that you're doing something to save Mother Earth, your budget for cologne that the troops performing "ceremonial duties" are gonna have to bathe in ahead of "state occasions" is going to be astronomical.
