Ocean grown superalgae is very promising as a replacement for petroleum and the left is gearing up to fight it. Escaped superalgae might be the new global warming scare.

This liquid fuel source has been investigated and studied for decades. Still has a way to go.

Moreover, algae might be grown on arid land and brackish water, ...

A good use for the Salton Sea.

"“There are probably well over 100 academic efforts to use genetic engineering to optimize biofuel production from algae,”"

"But Dr. Venter and Mr. Mendez argue that there are huge obstacles to making algae competitive as an energy source and that every tool will be needed to optimize the strains. "

10X gets one's attention and is a strong motivator, but at this point it's better to drill, baby, drill.

Don't know about "global warming scare" but it could pose a problem.

“New Leak Found on Gulf Coast”...interesting that this article comes RIGHT before this one.

I’m trying to find a thread I read a while back that said there was “talk” of using the Gulf for algae production.

Algae has been on the list for a few years. I hope this doesn’t become the Kudza of the oceans...
