Does this mean that Obamas new nickname is Weird Algae?
Actually, Newt referred to him on the campaign trail as “President Algae”.
“made from a plant-like substance known as algae.
This is why Obama is going to win...he understands his base. He talks to them on their level. He knows the idiots who vote for him aren’t going to know what algae is and explains it to them.
Send that link to Newt so he will have more talking points on the Algae topic.
Would you people like a good laugh? The reason why the algae can’t ever produce enough fuel to be industrially feasible is (drumroll please...) that there’s no way to give it enough CO2. Yes, there’s not way to produce enough CO2 to allow algae to replace fuel drilling. Is that funny or what.
“a plant-like substance known as algae.”...He acts like its a new invention. Why doesn’t he just go out and say it - the one percent will be slaughtered, and their body fat will Fuel The Future.
They tell us that drilling for oil is not a workable plan. However, algae is definitely a serious option!! The people who believe this stuff... I don’t know what they have for brains.
It’s gonna be a fun run.
I’m cheerful. “;^)
That’s a good picture. lol.
“And, there are enough Obama bots to believe that BS. “
It’s really being done in experimental settings. Some scale ups have been tested with I believe some success. If this approach turns out feasible, it would be using solar energy to produce synfuel. The problem caused by solar’s flakiness is greatly mitigated by the storage of the result as a synfuel. Effectively, the synfuel acts as a battery for the solar power generated and allows that solar energy to be used more efficiently than, say, solar panels.
This may turn out to be a pig in a poke. Or it may turn out to be a very interesting and maybe economic approach to using solar for actual reliable, dense power sources.
So how's that corn to ethanol and switchgrass investment going.....?
Awesome photo, wow. Hope you had fun and got inspiration.
The crowd must have been in the thousands. We had at least 300 in the banquet hall I was in with two other overflow halls. When Newt talked, he had the crowd so captivated with his command of the information, they forgot to clap. When they did cheer, the place almost fell down. He was awesome.
Same as Solyndra, all over again...
Yep! We could eat our way to health and happiness and the “first bitch” would be happy that we ate our peas.
Obama, “hey I have an idea! If we put a chunk of coal under pressure for a thousand years we will have a diamond”. This is what the DNC and thier followers have given us.
Uh...rush called it “pond scum” that fits pretty well.
What he said.
I'm not sure about the phosphate part but this has been tried on a grand scale with corn that is available now in large quantities and without all the infrastructure required to grow & harvest algae. How is that working? Algae will be a much poorer source of energy and way more expensive.
