America's New Man Made Oil!

Updated on October 13, 2011

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.

      Thanks for a great presentation on an alternative method of fuel that should be running full throttle by now. Unfortunately, the oil companies and their lobbyist control what we do when it comes to the selection of fuel production in this country.

      ...voted up.

      I am not sure where you are, my dove, but I pray that you are in good hands and are in good cheer. I sure hope you are doing well and I would be a liar if I said that I didn't miss you. So, wherever you are and whatever you may be doing, please be safe and go with God. Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving! - L.R.

      My Dove:

      Thank you for, once again, providing the Hub Page community with quality information that is not only helpful, but always well written.

      I fear, my dove, that bio-fuel will never come to see the light of day, as long as greed governs the day. Way out west, where I live, we have quite a few wind farms and even though we thought this would bring our energy costs down...they didn't. The greedy companies that own them actually shut them down, even during high winds, until they can fetch the price they want on the open market.

      These wind farm companies will NOT produce excess electricity unless they can sell it for big profits. Creating excess electricity that lowers the cost of energy for everyone, is not part of their agenda. And, I do not see where the bio-fuel industry will be any different.

      You see, my love, we live in a world where cold-hearted, greedy, cruel, murderous and otherwise evil individuals rule the roost. They think in terms of power, greed, and control and to make things easier on the peasants is to empower those peasants.

      Instead they allow their cronies to flourish under their rule and otherwise rape, pillage and pollute the earth and its people to their evil heart's content. Having said that, please remember Philippians 4:8. Best wishes to you, my dove, and know that my prayers are always with you. - L.R.

      Wow, algae producing fuels for our automobiles. It's very interesting that you should bring this very important discovery to our attention, as the news and fuel companies on T.V. haven't stated a single word about this!

      And they won't, until we are down to the last barrel.

      Very sad!!

      Thanks Magnolia!! Once again, I learn something new on the Hub everyday.

      Voted up and useful. Very useful !!

      Great hub, covers all the bases.

      I'm shocked that the ethanol plants have all closed down, bet no-one saw that coming.

      Hello Magnolia,it has been awhile since I dropped in on you and I am pleased to read such a positive article about alternative fuel that is being investigated in Wisconsin. I just hope big oil does not find ways to block the process as they have with other fuel alternatives!

      Magzz, this is a great hub that raises our consciousness for the much needed bio-fuel!! It is indeed the future!! In India, bio fuel is being produced though on a very low scale!! I hope all hubbers and readers understand the importance of this hub!!

      America cant fail because if it happens the world will fail!! I sincerely hope that your great country stays stable and guide the rest of the world!!

      Hope your back pain is better now and you are running around your farm spritely!! Cheers!!

      Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving comments. Considering the new process these guys are using to create these new biofuels, I doubt that anyone else has the rights to this. They have developed certain algaes that will work better than others, and they claim this new man made oil can do everything regular oil can do. I know that before when the industry was young, there were a lot of problems that they took care of.

      I'd heard about converting algae into fuel. As Sue Adams said, hopefully it won't be taken over by profit mongers. voted up and interesting

      This sounds like really good news. Hopefully it won't be taken over by greedy multinationals who are only interested in making huge profits.

      I saw an article on this about 15 years ago. I believe the Saudis bought the rights to the conversion process. I can't remember that well because I am old. LOL. I will look around and get back to you. I am VERY happy however, to see it resurfacing again! Maybe there is hope to use it this time around!!!

      Awesome article!
