Wondering how we'll ever get out of the downward spiral of petroleum-dependence? I have always felt that technology would find a solution. Solar, wind, nuclear power and other options all have major drawbacks. Something more radical will likely prevail, I think. Is this it? It certainly looks promising. Bacteria that excrete petroleum--Pretty cool idea from the company, LS9. Still, I don't know... More petroleum burning means more carbon in the atmosphere, so we would still need to figure out a way to reduce our carbon emissions.
