Klebsiella Bacteria Destroy Fields

In another sphere, klebsiella bacteria were genetically altered to secrete alcohol from the digestion of wood pulp and other organic material. This organism escaped, infected soil in wheat farmland in the United States, and destroyed the nutritive bacteria that are responsible for the fertility of the fields. Whole fields were rendered sterile, capable of growing wheat only a few inches high.
