Making Fuel From Atmospheric Carbon?

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 27, 2013

This sounds interesting:

Now, researchers at the University of Georgia have found a way to transform the carbon dioxide trapped in the atmosphere into useful industrial products. Their discovery may soon lead to the creation of biofuels made directly from the carbon dioxide in the air that is responsible for trapping the sun’s rays and raising global temperatures.

The method involves using specially bred bacteria to capture the carbon and convert it to concentrated, burnable fuel. I presume the idea is to capture the carbon as it exits the smokestack, perhaps by passing the smoke through a water filter populated with these bacteria?
