7456To hell with oil
- Jun 23, 2004The sooner we run out of oil the better .
If we are ever going retake our living space for life and not automobiles
we need to do more then just talk - what good does talk do if doesn't lead

"NO INSULT TO BALTIMORE
Baltimore wants to turn itself into a 'clean' energy company, so might want
to take a look at algae. Scientits at the University of New Hampshire in
the US have discovered that you can make biodiesel, which can run in normal
diesel engines, from algae. The fast-growing oil-rich algae can be
cultivated in shallow salt water pools in currently barren deserts and fed
on human and animal waste, the processing produces useful methanol as a
by-product and the waste material is nitrogen-rich fertiliser. To supply
the entire US would take up only 9% of one American desert, the Sonora, and
the total cost of productIon is half of the amount spent by the US on crude
oil alone, never mind oil refinement. Should Baftimore be looking to
cultivate pond life after all "
