    Interesting, as I saw a show on one of the channels about this. Supposedly a facility the size of Arizona ( I may have the state wrong) would provide enough 'fuel' to do completely away with oil imports into the US.

    seems like a novel idea - and a bloody good one - if it is not a spoof why is it not publicised and acted upon ?

    It might just cut back on major oil profits and if it took off it would not be only for the rich to get richer, so it is bound to be kept as much secret as possible,, but then again it might be bullshit, but it sounds good, but out of my line of expertise.

    I wonder how hard it would be to genetically engineer the algae so they produce faster, or only a special type of output, or make vodka or something.

    ^ maybe best to just move on then. I usually don't bother with links unless there is some lead in story either. But no point complaining about them. People are always going to do it, so just ignore it and get on with the interesting stuff. Time is too precious to get stressed out about proper posting etiquette.

    Shame really that BG did not post a bit more in the OP.

    Here are a few other related links:

    Valcent - they make systems that grow algae for bio-fuel.

    Valcent Products Inc,. - Home Page - Fri Aug 8, 2008

    Valcent Products Inc. creates, designs, and develops and patents highly innovative consumer and industrial products and processes for global markets. A pioneer and leader in ecotechnology and responsible and effective consumer goods, Valcent's team of scientists and designers set the highest of standards in marketing proprietary products developed to enhance the lives and lifestyles of its clients.
    Algae: 'The ultimate in renewable energy' - CNN.com

    Algae: 'The ultimate in renewable energy'
    ANTHONY, Texas (CNN) -- Texas may be best known for "Big Oil." But the oil that could some day make a dent in the country's use of fossil fuels is small. Microscopic, in fact: algae. Literally and figuratively, this is green fuel.

    "Algae is the ultimate in renewable energy," Glen Kertz, president and CEO of Valcent Products, told CNN while conducting a tour of his algae greenhouse on the outskirts of El Paso.
    Kertz, a plant physiologist and entrepreneur, holds about 20 patents. And he is psyched about the potential algae holds, both as an energy source and as a way to deal with global warming.
    "We are a giant solar collecting system. We get the bulk of our energy from the sunshine," said Kertz.

    if you knew a bit more about "teh intertubes" you might understand that most of the problems that occur are when PEBKAC's such as yourself click on links without knowing what they are.

    it is a lot more than

    and a Wikipedia link with some more information about Algae Fuel and its derivatives - plus more linkys for your clicking pleasure

    Algae fuel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Compared with second generation biofuels, algae are high-yield high-cost (30 times more energy per acre than terrestrial crops)

    Well I for one disagree with you Panda. I think it's a good idea to let people know what is expected and you can see from the quote below that some people like BG are rather uncouth and need a little help every now and then

    BG: we are not asking you to do any explaining...we realise you have your limitations ...just a cut&paste of the guts of the article would be a help...just like Bugs has done for you...oh and a tad of moderation in your tone would be nice too
