it is interesting and those bacteria look like gram postitive sporforming rods to me, and some of those can have some power to them.

Great! This could solve all of our energy problems. Then we can tell OPEC where to stick their oil. ;)

We already have loads of new ways of generating Energy.

It's just not profitable is it?
