None of these new energy sources ever seem to go through. Do you think maybe this has something to do with the rich who own all the fossil fuels would be losing their income?

Cheap, portable batteries based on sugar-eating bacteria could be a possibility, say scientists.

Eats sugar, produces electricity
A novel microbe, found in marine sediments, is able to convert sugar into electricity with a higher efficiency than any previously known organism.

Because sugar is abundant in the environment, a battery using the new microbes could provide economical electricity in remote places.

Rest assured, if it's THAT efficent, Bush will throw a cog in the works. Anything that makes life cheaper and more efficent is a no no for capitalism, thats not how they get their cash......

But it would be useful for the third world countries, and probably wouldn't cost much to make, they should be the ones getting it I think

that's a good idea, can't see it happening though.
