Researchers Close in on Technology for Making Renewable Petroleum

From Science Daily:

University of Minnesota researchers are a key step closer to making renewable petroleum fuels using bacteria, sunlight and carbon dioxide.


Note: The article falsely states that “CO2 is the major greenhouse gas mediating global climate change”. The facts are that water vapor is the greenhouse gas with the most important effect on temperature, based on its per-molecule potency and its relative abundance in the atmosphere (click on link attached to water vapor for references,) and that the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide are responsible for climate change not only has not been proven, it has in fact been falsified.
