Algae to solve the Pentagon's jet fuel problem


www.guardian.co.uk

The brains trust of the Pentagon says it is just months away from producing a jet fuel from algae for the same cost as its fossil-fuel equivalent.

The claim, which comes from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) that helped to develop the internet and satellite navigation systems, has taken industry insiders by surprise. A cheap, low-carbon fuel would not only help the US military, the nation's single largest consumer of energy, to wean itself off its oil addiction, but would also hold the promise of low-carbon driving and flying for all.

Heh-Go figure: The Military-Industrial Complex perhaps being the one to forward alternative fuel / energy modalities...

I just wonder how or if this will trickle down to the masses, or if it will be solely relegated to keep the war / butchery-machine churning?

An ANY case, I am glad to see some possible alternative actually being discussed to the greed-mongers in the oil-industry's stranglehold on planetary travel...

Something to log in the mental notebook IMHO.
