Judging by Obama’s recent comments about turning algae into fuel as a way to turn down gas prices algae isn’t just good for fuel. He must also be able to smoke the stuff because it appears to have certain side effects that cause hallucination.
I’m all for green energy. Wind, solar, bio fuels and so on, but not when it’s heavily subsidized or when it is a pipe dream. It would be amazing if my car ran on water, but it doesn’t. That doesn’t mean we should quit dreaming of the next clean fuel supply, but let’s not punish our people who are paying through the nose at the gas pump today because Obama and his liberal cohorts have no interest in creating a real energy policy that creates jobs and lowers prices. Let’s do our best to develop new technology, but let’s not forget that the vast majority of cars today run on petroleum.
Every time an environmentalist opens his mouth about drilling for oil domestically, they whine “But it could take ten years…” well how long is it going to take for us to mass market algae, and how much will I pay at the pump until this miracle happens? Too long and too much!
