Algae Power?

Interesting experiment being looked at in Santa Rosa: Making fuel from algae growing in the pools of Santa Rosa's wastewater treatment plants. Doesn't sound like this, if successful, would produce a whole lot of energy but, if nothing else, it should be interesting.

Even if this project in Santa Rosa proves to be ineffective at achieving the stated goals, it is this kind of research that could lead to breakthroughs. Maybe another group sees what is being done, and has some ideas on how to improve on the concept. SO regardless of how this project does, it will at least get other communities, civic and scientific, thinking about the possibilities.

Schatz Energy did a study on this a few years ago I believe.I'll try to dig up a report if I can.

Dumb idea as far as energy, good idea to clean wastewater.

Instead of this going nowhere article, how about commenting on the TS editorial about the rowboat rescue and the criticism it received from some people? I'd say the TS gave libertarian types a good whomping, really tanned their selfish greedy backsides.

I had friends that tried to get me to consume Blue Green Algae from some lake, as it was suppose to be beneficial to your health. I just couldn't see how eating algae was going to make me healthier.
