Ceci n'est pas une personne.

There is good news and bad news...

Good news is scientists have developed a way to organically produce oil for about $50 a barrel.

The bad news is, if oil is cheap again, this will cause a resurgence in flooding the atmosphere with green house gases from burning hydro-carbons.

As much as I'm hating high gas prices, I can't help but think the high prices are a good thing in that they cause people to ditch SUV's for hybrids. Or just get out of their cars and on their bikes. I sincerely hope a hefty carbon tax is in place before this technology reaches market.
