“Superhero oil-burping algae will save the world”

As much as this sounds like pure fantasy right now, I suspect it’s all but inevitable. Too many people are looking too hard at the problem — somebody is going to crack it sooner or later, and likely sooner. I also suspect that the consequences listed in the article are only the tip of the iceberg.

(There are also things like this, but it looks to me like the algae route is a better long-term bet.)
