What if #5

What if the answers to all the tough questions are actually pretty simple?

Take contaminated industrial sites…
These are a BIG problem, for sure. And the question of how we clean them up is a tough one.
Well, it turns out that a very simple and sweet solution has recently been discovered –
Sciency folk have found that diluted molasses pumped into contaminated soil feeds naturally occurring microbes. These pumped-up microbes, in turn, convert cancer-causing solvents into nontoxic byproducts.
Cool, huh?

PROMPT: Apply the KISS principle whenever possible!
