Obama: let's use algae instead of oil

Posted by Chris R16/R2730 on Thu Feb 23 15:33:32 2012

He wisely chose to spew this in front of an audience of enthusiastic, naive and uninformed college kids. Any other audience would have laughed hysterically.

Hhahahahahahahhahahahhahahh. What a fucking moron. This lowers home heating oil costs, how exactly? Or do we have to now buy a new $45,000 algae burner to use the new fuel. Oh yeah, there'll be a $500 a year tax credit for alternate fuels for families making under $30,000 but who own houses over 3,000 sq. ft. And his buddies in the algae-fuel business will all get rich.

Nuclear power with battery-electric vehicles is ultimately the way to go...

You left out this part:

""We're not going to transition out of oil anytime soon," Obama added, before touting the record high domestic gas production right now and the agreement with Mexico to drill in the Gulf of Mexico, while still calling for expanded investment in alternative energy."

Sorta reminds me of Bush touting energy production from switchgrass, whatever that is.

It's a valid research project. It will pay off a lot faster than government sponsored research into atomic energy did. But no, it won't make any difference in this decade.

LOL! Yes! When Bush touted it, it was sound public policy. When Obama touts it, it's insane.

Do you realize that Adbusters is an anarcho-commie publication?

Yeah I know that the term "anarcho-commie" makes no sense which tells you all you need to know about who reads that magazine.

Gets better ... Adbusters was the creator of the "Occupy" movement, and those who go there get added to the "watch me" list. Gotta love it. :)

What I like about you guys is that you just ignore the facts. There is no dispute that natural gas production is at very high levels. You just ignore it because it happens to be occurring during a Democratic administration. It just doesn't fit your story.

Or do we have to now buy a new $45,000 algae burner to use the new fuel.

Do you need a new tar sand or shale burner?

I heard an alumna of the University of Texas call into a radio show this morning and say the school has been working on this for about 20 years.

What it would take to replace 17% of our domestic oil use with fish food

http://michaelscomments.wordpress.com/2012/02/25/the-real-problem-with-obamas-algae-quote/

It would be less environmentally damaging to drill in the ANWR without any safety precautions and accept whatever goes wrong.

First off, it doesnt disprove his comment as possible/not possible

Second, it's agriculture almost at the scale of our food production. Acreage of the size of South Carolina? How about acreage the size of Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska Kansas, North and South Dakota. And the water that is used to produce crops there.

I don't see it as cost effective/viable either but it's not nearly as laughable as the right likes to paint it.

Fred

The part of ANWR where the drilling is supposed to occur is not occupied by wildlife; it's a desert.
