Beware…CO2 This tiny microbe Ralston eutropha is coming to feed you.

The bacteria,  genetically engineered to absorb carbon dioxide and  hydrogen from air and to convert it into alcohol fuel, potential applications of this project are immense ranging from preservation of fossil fuels or proving concrete foundation to global warming eradication initiatives.

Harvard Professor of Energy, Daniel G. Nocera  engineered the  bacteria, called Ralston eutropha, takes hydrogen and CO² then converts it into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by inserting genes that will allow the ATP to convert to alcohol fuel.
