Let’s face it. The people of this planet require energy to live, conduct business, protect themselves from the elements and grow the food we serve at our tables. Currently there are a number of wide ranging risks with obtaining the basic elements to “fuel” our society. I was particularly interested in this article because, living in Michigan I’m around a lot of water. I see each spring small ponds, lakes and creeks choke with fast growing algae blooms. While a fast growing process, nature normally takes its time clearing it out. What if we were to have a fast growing source to fuel our society, wouldn’t that be ideal? The scientists at the DOE’s Pacific National Laboratory have developed a process that essentially “speeds up” the process of turning Algae into a fuel source. If anyone wants to share what else they know about this great process, please feel free to add to the conversation. Thought you might enjoy the article.
