For the last few years, more and more people are pushing going green.

I have been giving this a lot of thought lately and remember reading about all the cows in our country and the gas they release every day.

Here is what I think we can do to help our environment and save a lot of money. We can get weather balloons, millions of them, probably from China. Each morning place a balloon in the proper orifice and the next morning remove the full balloon and replace with a new one. Then take the full ones to local utility companies and sell them the gas. This will make money for farmers and ranchers and lower price for customers and help clean our air. This is a win/win for farmers, utilities, and customers and would help us be more independent from imported oil.

Also, we can put the illegal immigrants to work doing this because this is another job Americans won't do.

I do not want anyone's thanks for this idea. I am just trying to do my part.
