Here is some background information... This is GOOD STUFF!!
We "Could" be energy independent in just a few years if we went for this.
Now that you have some background... here is one of my ideas to save the economy, create a ton of jobs and be energy independent in just a few
2 above ground pipelines from the ocean to the New Mexico desert. Set up shallow concrete trenches covered with glass (that you make out of the sand
on site) to limit evaporation. Any extra seawater is put through solar distillation and piped to cities as clean fresh water.
100% domestic production / sale only... once domestic supply is met, any extra can be sold on the open market... since taxpayer money would be used to
create this algae farm, we would pay cost + x% only. Generally non-profit until domestic production goals are exceeded then any extra is exported for
sale, otherwise we run into the "paper trading speculation game" as we have seen recently with our $4 a gallon gas.
So, this resource payed for by the taxpayer will be returned to the taxpayer at cost + operating expenses only. Of course this would be hard to do as
corporations and politicians would want to make as much profit for themselves as possible with total disregard for the American citizen as usual so
the rules would have to be on the books before even starting construction.
And it is Carbon Neutral, what is spent burning is re-absorbed by the next cycle.... Net Zero carbon from this source (The amount of Carbon released
by burning it is sucked back into it over and over for those that care about carbon buildup...no less carbon, but NO additions either).
