in general

random musing

I can sorta imagine a future where scientists experimenting with genetically modified bacteria looking to solve pollution will create a bacteria which will eat all carbon based fuel instead. We’ll end up with a globally spread bacteria that will force us into a post-fossil fuel era where only electricity from renewables and nuclear will work and everything else will just not even start.

But how does such a bacteria differentiate between carbon based fuels and carbon based living organisms?

What do you think?
