Interesting story about a genetically engineered organism that produces diesel fuel.
A US biotechnology company says it can produce the fuel that runs cars and jet engines using the same ingredients that make grass grow.Joule Unlimited has invented a genetically-engineered organism that it says simply secretes diesel fuel or ethanol wherever it finds sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.
The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company says it can manipulate the organism to produce the renewable fuels on demand at unprecedented rates, and can do it in facilities large and small at costs comparable to the cheapest fossil fuels.
What can it mean? No less than "energy independence", Joule's website tells the world, even if the world's not quite convinced.
The fact is that I won't be holding my breath.
I know that modern science and technology can perform miracles and in fact have been asking myself why the oil crisis that is inevitable as oil reserves run dry, isn't being addressed by science.
What I should be asking is where do all good inventions that give us an alternative to oil go to die?
Whose interests are most affected by this discovery?
Why of course the oil companies and those Sheiks who sit on the world's oil reserves.
So who do you think is going to buy out this technology and bury it?
Answer, the oil companies or the Sheiks who sit on the world's oil reserves.
These oil companies and sheiks who own most of the world's wealth and influence foreign policy of the U.S.A and other countries.
