Could Glowing Trees Replace Street Lights?

Does this sound like Avatar, trees light up at night, replacing street lights?

Actually the discovery that placing gold nanoparticles within the leaves of trees causes them to give off a luminous reddish glow may make this reality!

This would save on electricity costs, cut CO2 emissions, and reduce light pollution, caused by excessive artificial light.

I’m ready – are you?
