Great post OEB.
Three hundred fifty gallons of water to produce one gallon of oil!
These clowns will stop at nothing, even the laws of physics and economics, in using our hard-earned dollars to promulgate their fantasy world.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I don’t think there is enough pond scum in Florida to provide enough fuel for one medium sized city let alone they whole USA. What is the government smoking?
Co founder has ties to Chicago?

More green insanity. It takes 350 gallons of fresh water to make ONE gallon of fuel from algae. They can’t really be this stupid, can they?
“The Obama Administration has already sunk $25 million into a Florida company...”
That works out to $5,000,000 to the company and $20,000,000 back to the owebama campaign.
I the real world that would be illegal but we now live in a virtual world where the economy is rebounding, jobs are being created everywhere, and owebama is going to make sure that we all pay our fair share - to him.
Algae Biofuel has been produced and tested by the US Navy.
It costs nearly $33/gal.
A Rand Corporation study has found that there is no way to reduce the cost to make it a viable fuel for military use.
This tagline is free to anyone who wants it:
GAS WAS $1.85 per gallon on the day Obama was Inaugurated! - - freeper Gaffer
The government DID fund the initial research and development of the Internet, however it was strictly a military project designed to ensure military communications after a nuclear strike.
All the commercial applications since then have been through PRIVATE INVESTMENTS!
But then telling lies is all this government does. Well, that and commit what any other administration in the history of the United States would have been labeled crimes by the media.
Worst fuel ever. Absorbs water, doesn't have near the bang for the buck as gasoline, destroys the fuel system in cars not designed for it (and that design just raises the cost of the car), etc.
>>Youve got a bunch of algae out here, right?
Now that’s not a very nice thing to say about his constituency. I don’t care who they are.
You mean they don't even know how? Also I imagine ALL of us pond people who Hate algae in our ponds will get fined for using chemicals to kill it off.
I see Dow was smart enough to bail.
They should float the freaking farms on the ocean, using a genome incapable of surviving saltwater (which makes the surroundings the containment zone). If there's a storm, sink it about thirty meters down. Hell, put the refinery out there too. Grow food for the workforce. Stake claims on the sector. Start a new country.
Obama’s green base does somersaults when they hear words like algae.
After reading the whole article in forbes, including the opening sentence, it seems to me the real purpose of the article was to make Gingrich look contradictory and confused. Is Forbes magazine and this author McMahon on board with Romney by any chance?
Here’s what Newt actaully said that included the word “weird”:
And maybe what we ought to do at Newt.org is we ought to get t-shirts that say You choose. Gingrich went on to suggest the slogans, You have Newt: Drill here, Drill Now, Pay Less. You have Obama: Have Algae, Pay More, Be Weird.
Pretty funny, I thought. In context, what Gingrich had to say about the biofuel from algae situation that Obama brought up, made good sense.
