    that algae breaks down CO2 and releases pure oxygen?
    and that its fully possible for factories and plants with co2 waste can pump it through tanks of algae thereby only releasing oxygen into the air.
    and once the algae dies, it can be processed into ethanol. and it can be used as fuel.

    seriously, only one factory in the country is doing this, in arizona i believe.
    im pretty sure it would be expensive as hell but once you get things set up and start turning algae into fuel, costs can be made up.


    this is what i think should happen:

    oil companies should be taken over by somebody with common sense, and prices be lowered in order to keep this pending "recession/depression" from occuring.

    companies with co2 waste should be forced to switch to the algae filtration system

    this would bring about many new jobs to build, run, and maintain these algae systems.

    then when gas does start becoming a rare item, we may have another fuel to lean on.

    also more companies would be opening more positions to build parts to convert older cars to e85.



    Or am i missing something important?
    im pretty sure with the minds that are on this board this idea could be shot down.
    i was just thinking about it.

    electric cars are the way of the future, and someday the roads will be like they are in the movie I-robot with navagation linked inside the roads.

    Hell magnets are free energy. make a magnetic engine and your the next bill gates

    Seriously though I think that is a good idea, but Yea electric is the way to go. I just think it may be more of a hassle than they are willing to deal with. I think it will be between hydro powered cars and electric cars, and the factorys will be doing the same.

    nice plan,,but somewhere along the way you get an asshat that thinks their idea is better so it all goes off into differant strands,and really nothing becomes of it,
    ones idea is junk to another

    yes, but they are predicting a good 20 year gap before we can have a full transition to those type of cars, and this idea would still limit the amount of co2 emmissions into the air from companies.

    this would fill in the gap, and keep the country running smooth.
    it doesnt take long at all to make fuel from algae. the longest part would be making the algae systems. but even then, it would break the dependance on foreign oil a little bit, without drying out our corn supply.

    I'm curious. If we do switch to electric cars, where are we going to get the electricity? If we're just using electricity obtained by burning fossil fuels then it really isn't "clean." Maybe if more research was put into the underwater wind farms that harness the power of the water's current that, that seems like it could be a viable alternative. If we could use the electricity harnessed from the water, wind, and sun to power our vehicles then it would be a clean source of energy.

    good idea with the underwater farms I never thought of that before, but wouldn't that slow down the current? If the current slows down anymore we could be alot worse off then we are now

    "zomg don't put wind generators in the ocean, you'll slow down the current!"

    Besides, the richest, most powerful people in the world control the oil supply. There are many technologies that could reduce our dependence on oil significantly, but that would cut into their profits. And if you think that they'll let that happen because they care about the environment, you are truly ignorant.

    Our dependency on oil won't end until it's all gone. And that won't be for a very long time.

    Thanks Captain Obvious. But we can still hope that there is a tiny bit of righteousness in this world can't we? Must you squash it?

    yes klyph, that is all things that i already know.
    the powerful control, im just in the hopes that somebody that has the necessary means takes advantage of them and does something.

    but im living in a fantasy world that doesnt exist.
