But use this unproven technology to replace the entire process wholesale? Not really likely. What an idiot.
Why not do both?
Obama is steeped in slime. He knows all about it.
How’d that chicken droppings thing ever work out?
You will not be allowed to use filters or pumps to agitate, you will only be allowed to enjoy the slimy "GREEN" stuff. They will probably also charge you for the slime removal from your water area.
And would they be gathering this algae from the waters in front of the Kennedy Compound where the windmills are supposed to be?
Algae is a plant and plants need mass amounts of fertilizer.
The technology to use algae to produce fuel has been around for a while but it is not in any way going to make a significant impact, certainly not immediately and not a 17% replacement difference.
Any democrat who opens their mouth is spewing a lie from start to finish and spewing greenhouse gasses (by their definition).
Let’s sew up the orifices of every registered democrat for a cleaner environment.
The thing about “energy” is that when it comes down to it, the best thing alternative energy sources can do is to store their energy in some form of hydrocarbons. Battery technology is just not going to cut it. A Chevy Volt has a battery that has the equivalent of 1 gallon of gasoline and costs $10,000. They Telsa’s battery pack costs $40,000 and that is the premier tech right now for EV cars (160-230 miles per charge). But of course the batteries die, making these vehicles much more expensive than they initially appear.
However we can use all sorts of different technology to make synthetic fuels. If you MUST go carbon neutral, You only need water, carbon dioxide (from the air) and electricity. Thus, going to electric vehicles is backwards. Google the iron oxide cycle for an interesting take on how that might happen coupled with a nuclear reactor. There are also other ways to make carbon neutral synthetic fuel. Algae too might be economical, but not today.
Of course you can convert coal to synthetic fuel and we have plenty of high sulfur coal that is just laying around in the ground, if you don’t care about carbon.
Considering the fact that there are solutions on the horizon (say under 50 years) that will allow us to have cheap energy indefinitely, why not make the smart decision to utilize all the energy reserves we have right now? Keep the money we are exporting in our own country and reap the economic benefits. Duh right?
we should build the pipeline and drill where we can, AND develop Algae oil, too
How many millions has Obama extorted in campaign donations/bribes from corn growers and Big Corn companies to allow them to produce and refine corn into expensive mandated ethanol?
And now Obama wants to turn on them and promote algae instead? Is there no end to Obama’s treachery?
It makes more since than burning corn.
But maybe Obama’s energy policy is like “Barter Town” in “Road Warrior.”
On second thought that involved pig poo..0 would never before that..
