I was intrigued by this post by Patric.

A bug that eats oil?
Having looked it up, it apparently does just that - leading to Pseudomonas putida becoming the first ever patented organism in the world! More of the same here - and I'm sure that there's much more if you bother to go and search for it!

Will it work?
Now being my usual skeptic, cynic and whatnot self, I'm tempted to resort to my usual we shall see, lean back and start honing my sarcastic scalpel. But for Patric to go public, he must be pretty sure of what he's saying - and he normally follows through on his announcements.
Plus, I've just recently had to learn to be a bit more optimistic.

So here's to Patric and his super-bug!
The Gulf sure needs all the help it can get!
