“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.

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.

Go Newt!

Same as Solyndra, all over again...


Maybe Solyndra can be saved by making...get this...”Solyndra Green” from dead people and animals.

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.

"Hint: The LIE in the woodpile is when Bammy tells us we can grow enough algae to fuel America. We have not got that much phosphate and still have enough to grow food."

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.

Nanotechnology is being used to extract oil from algae without actually killing the algae. Several universities are working on this right now.

You can’t make this stuff up...

Is that little robots with milking stools?

This brings to mind a couple of points about another socialist wriggle:

#1) During the great leap, Chou en-lai had the task to taste and approve a green roe like substance called chlorella, which grew in urine and contained some protein. According to Mao (2005) Chang/Halliday:429 this excrement provided a high proportion of the urban population’s protein;

#2) about the phosphate needed for Obama’s algae, during the same period with fecal matter in high demand, fights broke out when communal toilets were raided by rival villagers (ibid:422).

“Is that little robots with milking stools?”

Hardly!

Think of little academented bachelor’s children squatting on milking stools busy milking the grant cow (AKA the taxpayers) as hard as they can.

The infuriating/funny thing is the greenies refused to permit a coal fired power plant in western Kansas that was going to research this algae growing with the cooling water...5-10 years ago. Under the Sibelius regime.
