The shit hits the fan in San Antonio!

The US City of San Antonio disclosed an agreement on Tuesday, which will make it the first U.S. city to squeeze methane gas from human waste on a industrial level, turning poop into fuel.

I guess the good citizens of San Antonio will soon be flicking on their power switches and cooking by gas .... or should that be crap?

The intenstinely challenged San Antonio residents produce about 140,000 tons a year of poop, which, according to the chief operating officer of the city's water system, can be converted into gas.
"You may call it something else," Steve Clouse commented, “But for utility services, the by-product of human waste - methane gas - will soon be burned in their power plants.”
Power plants? Don’t power plants have turbines .... don't turbines have fan blades? Is this where the shit REALLY hits the fan?
