Goo, Green
[1] A plague of bionano (non-drexlerian) goo; especially of strong biotic form. Green Goo outbreaks are (like Golden Goo) quite common, but easily managed, at least in those areas with good access to blue goo and equivalent.
[2] Facetious term for biological life spreading throughout the galaxy. c.f. pink goo.
[3] (archaic) The scenario of nanomachines or bio-engineered organisms used for human population control, either by governments or eco-terrorist groups (generally by sterilizing people through otherwise harmless infections).
