A detailed description of development of the first practical artificial leaf -- a milestone in the drive for sustainable energy that mimics the process, photosynthesis, that green plants use to convert water and sunlight into energy -- appears in the ACS journal Accounts of Chemical Research. The article notes that unlike earlier devices, which used costly ingredients, the new device is made from inexpensive materials and employs low-cost engineering and manufacturing processes.

Why do they need natural plants when they can genetically engineer better ones...plants that do exactly what they're told, how they're told, when they're told. Plants that can spy, can kill, or can generate power.
After all, that's what the government wants. Stuff that obeys every command, has unlimited uses, and doesn't have loose lips.
