Biogas Comes to Afghanistan

08 Jun 2011

Thanks to a Gurkha Soldier, biogas has come to Afghanistan.  In a nutshell, during a British Army tracking school in Borneo, a Gurkha named Lalit convinced me to research biogas for Afghanistan.  More accurately, Lalit kind of bugged me into it.  I travelled to Afghanistan, Nepal (twice), Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos while researching the biogas.  I travelled to all the right places, met with all the right people, and read stacks of literature.  I then wrote two major dispatches about biogas.  General Petraeus read the articles and adopted biogas for Afghanistan.  I talked with General Petraeus about this in his office a couple days ago.  General Petraeus is fully behind it.  All this thanks to Lalit, who just kept bugging me in Borneo.  And now, I am back in Afghanistan and researching Lalit’s biogas project before heading out with combat forces. 

Please read the first biogas dispatch published last year, all inspired by Lalit, that caused General Petraeus to bring biogas to Afghanistan.

(By the way, I contacted Lalit’s commander to please pass the word to Lalit.  The commander is on it.)
