Plants generate energy from the sun through photosynthesis. Now, researchers have created an ARTIFICIAL photosynthesis process that uses nanotechnology and biology to capture carbon before it can be emitted into the atmosphere. And while plants use this process to turn carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates, the artificial method can use it to build acetate. From there, this system could be used to make plastics or (maybe) fuel!

What do YOU think is the future of energy? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
