Will Reverse Photosynthesis Be The Answer?

The recent news that Danish scientists have found a way to produce fuel using biomass by applying “reverse photosynthesis” are definitely very exciting, due to sheer volume of plants on Earth. Plants represent over 90% of all the planet’s biomass and, being clean and renewable, this could mean a major step towards sustainable development. The plants themselves (please visit www.we-the-plants.org) may not be too happy with this, but they will probably find ways to use it for their own good (they always do). It may be relevant to note that now that humankind is paying more attention to plants and their exquisite properties, we should expect lots of new scientific findings in this area. Stay tuned…
