Scientists Working With BugsThat Eat Waste and Excrete Oil

Scientists are Now working with a small type of bug that does something amazing. It eats waste and excrete’s crude oil,Pretty amazing huh. Now sure,the idea of ‘renewable oil’, while pretty amazing, does nothing for the environment.It doesn’t cut down on pollution,it doesn’t help global warming. However, it does cut down on drilling for oil,which can disturb habitats, so that’s a start.I personally wonder how many of these bugs it will take to fill one tank of gas!!

It’s also great to know that it’s possible to create oil, rather than just mine it. Maybe, just maybe, this could help keep gas prices down until solar is widespread.
