Obama's next "green" energy idea.....algae
Obama's plan to rescue America from a major, gas-related depression.....algae
From WashingtonExaminer -- "We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae -- you've got a bunch of algae out here," Obama said at the University of Miami today. "If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we'll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America."
This is no different, and only slightly less stupid, than putting corn in our gas tanks. Dumb hippies want us to replace meat in our diets with algae and now Obama wants us to put it in our gas tanks. Like all the other green energy fantasies such as wind, solar, electric cars, wave, ethanol, etc., this technology is at least 20 years from viable marketability.
Based on this statement by Obama, no doubt algae farms will spring up, donate to Obama's campaign, and the administration will fund them with billions of taxpayer dollars only to have it disappear down the rabbit hole of uselessness.
