Cow flatulence to replace some uses of fossil fuels? Maybe...

That could prove effective in the long run and really help out farmers, after all, any additional lines of revenue are gonna be beneficial.

While there are some current flaws that take away from the cost effectiveness now, it could be worthwhile in 30 years. At current market prices, each cow is only producing about $0.07-$0.10 per day (depending if we are looking at exporting vs residential rates).

Not sure how much one of those dohickees costs, but is it a worthwhile investment for. $30 a year?

Methane gas capture from landfills is another interesting source of energy; some garbage trucks already run on landfill methane gas which is cleaner and allegedly more cost effective.

Yes, and those are great. Though they have an advantage in that you can have a few large collectors, rather than a ton of small ones.
