This would be hilarious if it wasn't true. Obama, Mr, Smart Guy, tells us how algae is going to save the day. Just a little investment and algae could replace almost 17% of our oil requirements. No need for further drilling, just allow Obama to takeover land mass the equivalent of South Carolina and 25% of our irrigation capabilities and walla we have oil. The problems with algae was even written in the study Obama was quoting from:
It would take acreage equivalent to the area of South Carolina to generate that much oil
It takes 350 gallons of water for every one gallon of oil you produce
Meeting that water requirement would take 25% of our irrigation capacity
It takes even more water than that unless you use lakefront and oceanfront real estate
I would have expected such grandiose schemes from and eighth grade science project not from the President of the United States. Especially a President that is supposedly Mr. Cool under pressure, and the smartest in any room. I know lately the media is busy pushing that the gasoline prices are beyond the Presidents control, even though in the summer of 2008 the high prices were laid upon the feet of President Bush by the same media pawns. I'm sorry but the steep rise of the price of Gasoline under Obama's watch are almost entirely his fault. Obama is not an "all of the above" energy policy agent, He is an anything accept oil, Natural Gas, Nuclear, Coal, well anything but what we currently have developed. Obama is throwing spitballs trying to find something that sticks. Obama long ago run out of ideas for this country. It is high time we find a "less smart" more capable President. I would much rather have a rational and prudent President, than some one who thinks like an eighth grader.
