Goo, Green
[1] A plague of bionanotech (non-drexlerian) or purely biological 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.
[2] Facetious term for biological life spreading throughout the galaxy (see also Pink Goo).
[3] In archaic usage, the scenario of nanomachines or bio-engineered organisms being used for human population control, either by governments or eco-terrorist groups, generally by sterilizing people with otherwise harmless infections.
