Bacteria are among the strangest and most diverse creatures on the planet. They exist everywhere — virtually defining Earth's biosphere — and they are enormously influential. If we humans learn to "communicate" properly with bacteria, we can move much of our industrial-era petroleum economy to biomass energy, even with carbon-negative results for the atmosphere.
