    This is hilarious. When Obama suggested we invest in algae as an alternative energy source, the audience laughed at him. Now, pay close attention here, look at how strong, commanding and confident Obama comes off, all the way up to the the 15 second point. Look at his facial expression at 15 seconds as the crowd laughs at him, look at his body language before the 15 second mark, and after.

    There is a a reason the crowd is laughing at Obama. While gas prices are high right now, thanks to environmentalists and the radical left-wing. With algae, subsidizing it would cost over $50 a gallon for algae as an alternative energy source. In addition to that, algae at lower temperature will not go through an engine effectively enough, so in order for this to work at an astromically high price, we will need a heck of alota global warming for it to work. What an idiot!!!!!!

    Your description of the state of the art of algae fuel is incorrect.

    I'm not sure I see a change in him. He is an arrogant little prick all the way through.

    Normally I don't disagree with too many of your posts, but you're misrepresenting this one, Locke.

    They were not laughing at the idea of fuel from algae, but at his reference to 'their' algae. He was speaking at the University of Miami Field House...

    The United States Department of Energy estimates that if algae fuel replaced all the petroleum fuel in the United States, it would require 15,000 square miles (39,000 km2) which is only 0.42% of the U.S. map[9], or about half of the land area of Maine. This is less than 1⁄7 the area of corn harvested in the United States in 2000.[10] However, these claims remain unrealized, commercially. According to the head of the Algal Biomass Organization algae fuel can reach price parity with oil in 2018 if granted production tax credits.[11]

    No, not really. While the technology to produce biofuel from algae is real, it is far from perfected, and VERY far from being a sustainable source in large enough quantities to mean anything.

    So, you're in favor of tax subsidies to Big Algae?

    I gotta say, that if an alternative source of fuel can be found in algae, I'm all for it.

    Go for it.

    I'm not going to suddenly decide to vote for Obama simply because it was his lips I heard of this from, but I am damned supportive of finding alternative fuels and if science can pull it off... hell yes, I say go for it.

    I actually think algae has potential as an energy source.
