Fuel Grows On Trees!

Scientists discover Patagonian diesel that grows on trees

A tree fungus could provide green fuel that can be pumped directly into vehicle tanks, US scientists say. The organism, found in the Patagonian rainforest, naturally produces a mixture of chemicals that is remarkably similar to diesel.

“So money does grow on trees!”

Of course, now we have to figure out how we can mass grow this stuff to be able to support an energy consuming creatures like us and our inventions. I wonder if that is possible? I hope so, because that would be amazing. If nothing else, it sounds like there is all the more reason to research these kind of alternatives more thoroughly. This is definitely good news! Think of all the good it can do if it can be mass produced or something like that! Hybrid vehicle technologies are going to like this news!
