This sounds too much like the ethanol fuel debate... don't starve the world by using up all the corn for fuel... distilling alcohol is immoral... your car won't run on it... methanol won't work either... freedom of choice is bad... blaggety blaargh.
The real question is: wouldn't my turds replace the scorched wood after I digested that massive, juicy steak? Or is that just another form of restricted waste to sequester?
