WTF ??? do these people check their facts????
"One stumbling block: Algae require a large growing area to produce even a single gallon of oil."
Oil per acre:
it just amazes me that all the crap we flush down the toilet produces methane gas. yet most of the country burn it off. this gas can heat our homes, run our cars, heat and cool our public buildings, and yet we're to stupid to use it. this is the most renewal energy we have, and we waste it. I guess it's not
profitable to the big shots to use it. wake up America. the old world is far ahead of us.
WHY NOT USE THE FAT DRAWN FROM LIPOID SUCTION, IT MIGHT ADD NEW LIGHT TO THE TERM "FAT FARM" ????
Good to know folks are dreaming up all kinds of alternatives and I hope the effort never ends.
I'm a bit perplexed though at how conservation has become such a dirty word. I see neighbors get in their car to drive to the mail box 3 doors down! I see people sitting in their cars at the grocery store waiting on the significant other engine running. Not to mention the long lines at the junk food drive up windows etc, etc...
Conservation is simple, free, worldwide and definitely a very healthy alternative. Try it, you'll like it!
No one mentioned the waste oil or grease from the fast food joints and large restaurants. They used them successfully on many vehicles. Whatever happened to that idea? Was it because the exhaust had a French fry odor ?
Anyone remember hearing about the test cars sent out by (I believe it was) Chrysler in the 50's? Turbine engines that ran off alcohol? Chanel No 5, tequila, rubbing alcohol...
Any in many states, running off solar and wind is acceptable to a point. You go over their allotment though and you pay. You are not allowed to leave the grid.
