Nicaragua Seeks Energy Diversification in National Dish


Managua, Nicaragua
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Energy and Mines in Nicaragua announced plans to use methane gas, a major by-product of it´s national dish Gallo Pinto, as a new source of energy. The ubiquitous dish, made of rice and beans, could yield more methane by slightly undercooking the beans, the spokeperson said. In an independence day speech addressing the issue, president Daniel Ortega said "By harnessing the methane output of the entire population, Nicaragua can attain energy independence. We can free ourselves from reliance on foreign nations."
Nicaragua is already on the cutting edge of renewable energy, particularly in the field of geothermal power, thanks to plentiful active volcanoes. Renewable sources account for 25% of the nation´s energy.

I visited Nicaragua and Costa Rica, and bot countries claimed that Gallo Pinto was their national dish. Me, as a tourist, felt very confused. Buy Viagra Viagra
