Biofuel from genetically modified bacteria?

That's what researchers of the University of Georgia claim to have accomplished. The discovery has two elements I do not like, namely genetic modification and that it is still a carbon-based fuel and not the much more environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel, which only generates water as "residue". Still it is interesting to keep track of all the many revolutionary discoveries in the field of energy generation that are mostly being ignored for the time being but that could well, taken together, displace the highly polluting and destructive inefficient economy of the Industrial Era to the museums.
