Germans develop new politically correct use for tobacco — biomass

Imagine giant cigarettes, burning tobacco to heat water to spin turbines.

“Tobacco plants bloom when they are just a few months old – and then they die. Now, researchers have located a genetic switch which can keep the plants young for years and which permits unbounded growth. In short, an ideal source of biomass.” [Fraunhofer]


  1. GMO tobacco that can’t die!!! If it mates with a kudzu or kelp there will be no hope for humanity! I guess that’s the point.
