New microbe makes fuel from CO2 in the air
Scientists at the University of Georgia have created a microbe that converts carbon dioxide into biofuel, a discovery that might boost the battle against climate change.


not much use  - they ultimately used hydrogen gas to reduce the CO2, so the resulting “biofuel” is just a conversion of the energy used to produce the hydrogen.  Burning the hydrogen directly would be just as carbon-neutral …

This is my first attempt at restoring a book from the 1870s. 19th century natural history is just about the greatest thing ever, so I hope that I’ve prolonged the life of this little chunk of it for a lot longer. If you’re interested in repairing and restoring your own books, you should check out some of the tutorials I used and the videos I watched!

That’s absolutely incredible! Well done!
