McAuliffe's energy plan to enlist the help of Virginia's chickens.

The McAuliffe campaign has released it's energy and business plan. The energy portion should make the liberals in Arlington county very happy. It says no to off- shore drilling, no to coal, no to nuclear energy, but yes to chicken waste. That's right, according to an article in the Richmond Times dispatch the McAuliffe energy plan includes a proposal that would:
...offer a financial incentive for new digester gas systems that can be used to convert chicken waste into energy. McAuliffe said there are chicken and turkey farms in the Shenandoah Valley that would be a rich source of such energy.

He does say he is in favor of wind energy. Gee I wonder if we could harness the hot air that is produced by his campaign speeches?
