Efficiency and technology...not there....yet....but of course, libtard/progressive idiot-ridden NYT pushing the idiotPOTUS’s ‘green’ agenda....... =.=
Whaling was essentially the first viable saltwater algae harvesting technology, and that industry had a good run, but now our energy requirements are too much for that method.
Obama could save his teleprompter Presidency and go down in history if he read a land-on-the-moon speech about ocean grown saltwater biofuel superalgae, spent $30 billion on it, and put the best non-affirmative-action academics and conservative engineers on the project. That's half the amount spent on foodstamps every year. The leisure class could go on a diet for 6 months. Most of them need it.
First, I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of replacing petroleum with ocean grown saltwater superalgae. No single energy project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range energy security of our nation; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish. We propose to accelerate the development of the appropriate superalgae.
