Oh really? I thought algae biofuel had more promise than corn.

/Goes off to read the article

Oh. Right. It does show more promise than corn. Subby is just following the meme.

I'd forgotten about the calculations I did for algæ farming for home energy. Figured out that it would most likely be feasible in most climates.

But there isn't a algae lobby, and millions of votes that decide based on algae.

Corn: Is a joke because of all the subsidies to buy votes.

Sounds like a hemp fact list for algae.

The fun part is that you can grow biofuel algae in the same ponds you can use for aquaculture. So you get biodiesel, plus catfish.

and what about switchgrass and poplar trees?

Every kind of ethanol (switchgrass, sugar, algae, etc) in terms of CO2 input vs output is better. EVERY KIND.

Why aren't we using it? Gov't subsidies of corn.

/Royally pisses me off.

Lt_Ryan: Corn: Is a joke because of all the subsidies to buy votes.

Agreed. To me, corn subsidies are just corporate welfare. So when people in places like Iowa and Wisconsin start getting uppity about federal spending, I just shake my head.

Now that I know it might be a pollutant, I am all for algae. Will be in the secret GOP cave with Cheney, drawing up plans on how we can pollute the world with it even more.

Algae can be grown on shiat-ponds. Livestock farmers currently have trouble dealing with their shiat-ponds. Thus, a commercial use for shiat-ponds--fuel algae.

Algae undercuts the average American family farmer! You corporate whore! Oh... wait...

Algae can be grown in the desert in man-made enclosures.
