An interesting read about a schisty problem on Everest, perhaps to be solved by a methane producing generator system.

when they finally settle on a solution they can afford to deal with the droppings the navigation of the kumbu section will be matter of canyoneering rather than anything to do with ice...

last year about 1200 people attempted, at about $45,000 each. thats $54million in a dollar-a-day economy to try and sort the problem. or any other problem Nepal may have. and thats just everest climbers.

the problem there isnt high altitude piles of sh#t, its the combination of local corruption and being stitched up by foreign companies.

they could have heated titanium shitters that turn the waste into graphene or zirconias if they chose to.

perhaps they could hire more poor people to carry more of the rich people's sh#t, downhill at least this time.
