I have done some looking into this issue and firmly believe this is the direction we should be pushing just as hard and fast as we can. Open ponds is not the best or most productive way to grow the algae but just for argument sake lets say thats how we were going to produce it. We could produce enough oil to completely meet the energy needs of this country using less than 3% of the land that is used for agricultural uses. Plus it doesn't need to be land that is viable for agricultural process. So in simple terms with the 3% of the land used for agriculture (about the land mass of Rhode Island) we could be completely off of foreign oil. We would create a crap load of jobs, throw one hell of a boost to the domestic economy, and NOT be sending the 200-250 BILLION DOLLARS a year to the mid east that we are now. We could have done this already with the time and money we have wasted on IRAQ. Why is it our Government isn't interested? It just steams my a$$.
One of the best, most educated things ever said on this whole forum.
