Another Renewable Energy Source: E. coli

No shit; this is for real.  This is another energy source like solar and wind where we'll never have a shortage.

British and Finnish scientists have found a way to generate renewable propane from E. coli. It's still in the experimental stages right now, but then so were oil drilling technology and the horseless carriage at one time.

Patrik Jones, of the department of life sciences at Imperial College London, said:

Although we have only produced tiny amounts so far, the fuel we have produced is ready to be used in an engine straight away...We chose propane because it can be separated from the natural process with minimal energy and it will be compatible with the existing infrastructure for easy use...I hope that over the next five to 10 years we will be able to achieve commercially viable processes that will sustainably fuel our energy demands.

Every little bit helps.

Tom you naive, ignorant fool!

Don't you know as our courts and laws let Corporations patent our own personal genes, as soon as this process gets finalized they'll patent the E.coli?

Another scenario, the Finns will patent it, the Energy companies will force Congress to enact protection laws and we proud Americans will be sitting there paying 5 bucks a gallon while the Finns are rolling in Propane.
