Post 43 in a series. When Green Turns Brown is an examination of a small town’s digester-energy project, in which Whitewater, Wisconsin would import other cities’ waste, claiming that the result would be both profitable and green.
Embedded above is a clip of a longer, 9.17.15 ‘State of the City’ address from Whitewater City Manager Cameron Clapper. The original, full address is online at https://vimeo.com/140321184.
In this clip, City Manager Clapper contends that the digester-energy project has been scaled back, and offers a claim about what that supposedly scaled-back program would look like.
I’ll not offer an assessment of these remarks, this week. Instead, it’s fair simply to embed the city manager’s discussion on waste importation. It’s true (if unsettling to a few) that more people will learn about the digester-energy project from this website than from every city presentation, video, or local news account combined.
One should use that reach fairly (although other publications, in a similar position, certainly would not): here is City Manager Clapper’s uninterrupted, recent account of the project.
Next Week: Assessing the 9.17.15 description of the project.
