glow in the dark xmas trees???

I kid you not! These 'bioluminescent' trees that act like fireflies can one day replace street lights! These genetically modified trees use a combination genetic material from fireflies and a luminescent bacteria to produce glowing enzymes. The scientists not only figured out how to make trees glow in the dark, but they also figured out how to make them change color! The article link is below, but what I am wondering is if xmas trees could do the same (not that I would want that!).

I find that a little scary ...

I also had a strange thought. If we ever had have blackouts again for security purposes, as they did during WWII, how would you douse a bioluminescent tree?? (I guess I watch too many movies from the 1940s. )

Great Potential. Maybe an enviromentally friendly way to spruce up the garden. No pun intended.
