C'mon folks, talk about "algae" as a biofuel have been around since the 80's. More recently "Peak Oil" and concerns that rapidly growing energy consumption from developing nations like Brazil and India would dry up carbon based fuel supplies re-invigorated interest in "Algae Farms" and thier potential.

Unfortunately, at this point it's no different then a lot of "alternative" energies. The EI to EO ratio's don't make sense. That's Energy In to Energy Out. It's just too expensive to make sense right now. Such programs take decades to develop and even then sometimes fail. Hello Ethanol!!! I'm not saying we as a nation shouldn't pursue this type of alternative; but WE CAN'T COUNT ON IT. It will not and cannot replace carbon based fuels for years to come.

That being said certain algae's produce quite a bit of oil. Up to 50% of their mass can be oil. SO it's an interesting idea.....years away from being useful.

Obama is selling another pipe dream. I wish he and those that voted for him would just PUT DOWN THE PIPE!!!
