This would be AWESOME!

I know that many people are very suspicious of bio-engineering, but what if they could make trees that glow like something out of a Tinkerbell movie?  Scientists are working on making glow-in-the-dark plants that could one day replace streetlights.  How awesome (and beautiful) would that be?  Unfortunately, since the process relies on the chlorophyl found in plants, I don’t suppose it would work very well here in the north where the trees are bare 6 months out of the year.  But still . . . just imagine walking hand in hand down a street in Paris under the glowing trees.  I may not want to eat genetically modified food, but I think we could learn to live with glowing trees!
