I watched this in it's entirety.

If any of you decided not to bother you missed out on a fascinating speech. You really need to listen to what this man and his colleagues are doing.

I guarantee you will be either impressed, blown away, or scared ****less: The choice is yours.

That was a good presention and video Sanspear so thanks for posting it. I like what he (venter) said about possibly in 18 months that Ethanol might be obsolete. I took it that they are working on pollution control as they want to use CO2 as a source of energy to grow crops and fuels in the future. I have seen alot of info coming out on Algae as an example that those Scientists are experimenting with.
