That's what we're all thinking, right? Have you read this article about a California company that has found a way to get microscopic bugs to excrete crude oil? Yeah, you read that right. It's a long way from decreasing our dependence on foreign oil, as the politicians would say, but the thing I love most about this story is that it highlights people in the private sector in the process of finding workable solutions to the problems we face. Free market. No government interference needed. I'll buy the shitty oil when it's ready.
