Newsweek had an article about making new biological life-forms that
create gas... some info is here on the web:

Apparently- there's no downside to it...

As always --the best "engineering" will be to push our summer thermostat

comfort levels to 80+, drive less, etc. etc. None of which purports to
be a

solution but just a push in the right direction. If any political
candidates

ever develop enough backbone to actually push a self-sacrifice message

seriously to our nation I will be very impressed. Carter's exhortations

actually modeled from the Whitehouse have been missing for a lot of

administrations now.
