Can we grow oil?

This report of activity at Texas A&M University suggests so, though I am skeptical until I see an Air Force with fungus powered jets. Hydrocarbons are much, much more productive of energy than anything, and will be until physics delivers on things of which it can only dream at the moment. Peak oil, if we stayed passive and let the catastrophe play out, would be a disaster, but our strength as a species is enterprise.

The forest may be burning down, but these monkeys have discovered how to cook sausages. It is truly amazing when science and a moment meet, isn't it?
