The Fungus Stinks On and Aquires an Algal Friend

You may have heard about the fungus which produces diesel.  (I wrote about it here.)  Well, I found some more interesting and related articles which I felt others might like to read about.

The discover is being praised highly by the New Scientist and they seem to endorse it as a revolutionary breakthrough.  (So rarely are revolutions seen for what they are when they are, you shouldn’t take this as proof-positive.)

On a related note, I found an article over at Portfolio which discusses an algae which can be harvested as a bio-fuel—if all goes according to plan.

No matter how you slice it, this is an exciting time for energy production.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds.  Will we really use funghi and algae to energize our houses and cars?

Maybe it’s time to rethink the American farm?

Happy hunting, you crazy rabbits.
