CO2 is BOTH super abundant AND rare. Gotta love liberalism allowing mutual logical contradiction as true:
The sun: does global warming without which there’d be no life. Global warming is good. If excessive simply move the sun further away; star relocation is less irrational than taxing people to cool the sun.
S: “Do we have an algae power plant anywhere?”
W: “Yes, and no”
W: “we have light and dark… currently feeding them sugar”
Plants which produce no power [ no pun intended ].
VAST sums of energy imput required to tool CO2 to suit algae. Addition money must be wasted to feed CO2 to algae facilities:
The construction of a liquid CO2 pipeline can easily cost $1 million per mile.
As with sugar algae systems let’s ignore both the front end costs- and continuing costs when analyzing output success.
S: [When will you start]
W: [cost share should be able to bring what private industry would be able to accomplish in a couple of years. … gives these designs a world wide competitive advantage.]
W: In five years … we should have demonstration scale… 10 million gallons.
S: the high prices of fuel are hurting families
pres: prices will necessarily skyrocket
The bill will allow “DOE to enter into long term contracts which will spur development”. It both inspires development AND pays for development THEN purchases output? Wow, what a deal to line pockets! 1h 7min

Recent alternative fuel bill inanities while ignoring demonstrably beneficial fissionable power
S761 to wield regulation to force competition in lieu of efficient free market. The market doesn’t know what it wants as it is comprised of people who cannot know what is best for themselves — despite government being comprised of people also.
remember: algae is tomorrow’s evil fossil fuel — same evil different time scale
