The initial amount spent on algae to date may pay off eventually, and it’s proper for the military to try to determine what is possible. But look at how casually the current regime is funneling money to political buddies, let alone how the GOP has been complicit in other boondoggles. We see initiatives that are not ready getting government handouts. There is a difference between integrated circuits and ethanol.
It’s fine if the government looks at possible future energy options. I don’t want immature technologies to grow into jobs programs/slush funds for political ends.
There isn’t enough algae to make it work.
