Celera Genomics has made it clear that it entered the gene-sequencing race intending to eventually cash in on its findings, perhaps through applying for patents on individual genes.
"People think that patenting genes is patenting life, that's the cliche you constantly hear," Venter told CNN. "But genes are not life. They're just strips of chemical information that can be used in lots of important ways."

Sounds great but when will the public ever see any benefit from it? My guess is never.

Running out of co2 is not a problem. Any fuel made with co2, will put out the same amount of co2 as there was to begin with. It's the first law of thermodynamics: matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed from one form to another.
Here's an example: A tree uses the sun's energy to grow and live. When you cut down that tree and use it as logs to build a fire, that bright red color/heat you experience, is the sun's energy. When you burn co2 as a fuel, it will release that co2 energy.
