algaebiofuel

... The cost of the biofuels calculated out at $15.25 a gallon in the November 2011 purchase, said Thomas Hicks, the Navy’s deputy assistant secretary for energy.

Regular marine diesel and jet fuel purchased by the Pentagon around the same time cost just less than $4 a gallon, according to the Defense Logistics Agency’s energy division.

There is absolutely no reason to use biofuels at this point in time. There may never be.

More libtard feel-good policies run amok.

So the obvious solution... artificially raise the price of fossil fuels to higher than the cost of this bio-nuts crap (and maybe throw even more government subsidies at the bio-crap).

Add this to the list of things for a new President to do day 1

- Fire anyone at State involved in Law of Sea Treaty
- Fire anyone at State involved in promoting “gay pride” events at overseas embassies
- Fire anyone at D.O.D. involved in promoting the use of algae fuels, beyond R&D.

It may cost even more when you consider that the energy output per kilogram is probably a lot less with a biofuel. What is the cost for the same amount of energy supplied via gasoline for instance?

If only they inflated their Tires as Lord Obama instructed them, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Which reminds me, did anyone catch the gushing Leon Panneta story on 60 Minutes tonight? He's the best Defense Secretary ever!

They should use this overpriced goo in his Government issued Private Jet and make him pay for it personally.

It’s a small price to pay for saving the earth.

Ships that don’t require speed can revert back to sail power.

Actually..the cost is even more than what they paid. The delivery was $15 a gallon..it consisted of 50% conventional fuel at $4 a gallon and 50% biofuel..about $26 per gallon..blended at $15. They probably were selling the biofuel at a loss so it gets worse still.

a toe in the water toward easing the country away from dependence on unfriendly foreign oil

Here's an idea - we close the EPA, jail the environmentalists (or send them to Europe) and drill for our own oil.

That will "easing the country away from dependence on unfriendly foreign oil" just as well.

Just wait until the next maintenance report is released revealing that the engines need to be completely replaced due to unusual wear given the use of the new, untested fuel.
