America's New Man Made Oil!
Today, all across America, scientists are converting algae, aka pond scum, into man made oil! Biofuel is now the future of America. Unlike crude oil, man made oil is non polluting. I for one expect the cancer rates to decease all across the USA once we start using man made oil made out of algae.
Here in Wisconsin we have been experimenting with biofuel for the last few years. Ethanol seemed like a great idea until we found out it required massive amounts of fresh water to produce it. It also did not make sense to use a huge source of food (corn), in this way. Today, every ethanol plant in my area of Wisconsin is now shut down, along with the jobs which that plant produced. After the ethanol fiasco, I no longer gave biofuels much thought, thinking they were just a flash in the pan....until I read about algae biofuel.
This is very exciting. A vast amount of algae oil can be grown within just a few days, and it is the same exact thing as regular oil, because regular oil also comes from algae. Within 3 years you might be filling up with an algae biofuel! There is no difference between algae biofuel and good old oil, and your car will run the same. The only thing that will be different is the cost. Algae biofuel should be well under 2.00 a gallon. Once algae farms are set up all over America we will have a never ending supply of man made oil, all produced within our own borders, along with thousands of jobs to go along with it.
And there is even more good news associated with algae biofuel. Algae eats sewage and CO2. That means that any town with a sewage plant would have a ready source of food for this man made oil. The town where you live may well set up their own algae biofuel farm, and who knows, perhaps it will grow enough to supply all its citizens with a very cheap means of heating their homes every winter. Or even better, people might be able to grow their own fuel for the winter right in their own backyard, costing just pennies per gallon.
I can only begin to imagine how independence from foreign oil will impact America. It will be the most positive thing to happen to our country in a long time, and we will truly be FREE! Americans have been held hostage to big oil for way too long. No more oil wars, no more stress over oil running out.
Even more good news, these algae biofuel farms can be set up in places that are virtual wastelands, we don't need to use prime farming land to grow man made oil. The vast deserts of the western United States will be home to the first mass scale algae farms. Scientists are working on finding the right algae every climate. If you think that algae cannot be grown in your area, think again.
Eventually, people all over the world will be using algae biofuel. For years now, the end of oil meant that billions of people would starve to death in third world countries, but with algae biofuels, American farmers will be able to continue to feed the world. That makes me so proud!
People say that America will fail any day now, I never believed that. Time after time America created technology the world needed for a better place to live. Algae biofuels will eventually replace all the harmful sources of energy we see today such as nuclear plants and coal power plants. And, the American way of life will go on, and hopefully spread to third world countries. We can all live in peace and comfort and without war. We can even pay off our debts to China with algae biofuel technology, because it is much less expensive than anything they are using for energy now.
The age of oil is over, and the age of man made oil is just beginning.
