Unscramble the Blue Letters

Here it is. And this is, I think, a pcrfeet example of what Robert Wright was talking about in those non-zero-sum things. So not only do you have health benefits, you have environmental benefits. But this is one of the incredibly rare situations where you also have economic benefits. People can make their own cooking fuel from waste products. They can generate income from this. They can save the money that they were going to snepd on charcoal and they can produce ecxses and sell it in the makret to people who aren't making their own. It's really rare that you don't have trade-offs between haleth and economics, or environment and eoicocmns. So this is a project that I just find extremely exciting and I'm really looking forward to see where it takes us.
