Bugs and Fuel

Wow:

He means bugs. To be more precise: the genetic alteration of bugs – very, very
small ones – so that when they feed on agricultural waste such as woodchips
or wheat straw, they do something extraordinary. They excrete crude oil.


Scientists find bugs that eat waste and excrete petrol

Have you seen the commercials where they pose the question - What if Firemen ran Congress?

Well, if voters want to solve the energy issues in the US they need to ask themselves - What if Engineers ran Congress?

Full disclosure - I am an Engineer, however, I don't think I'm being boastful when I say that Engineers would solve the problems. Engineers use science and the art of the practical to get things done.

American voters know what happens when politician run Congress! We get nothing done on any issue?

We DO need change - REAL change - not just a change of the political affiliation of the person occupying the White House, leading the Senate and/or being the Speaker of the House.

Apologies for previous rant.

On Topic - There are lots of potential solutions to the "energy problems" in our world. There is no silver bullet. The best solution will be the sum of all of the good solutions.
