New appreciation for algae

Never thought I'd say it, but algae could be useful in the process of weaning away from fossil fuels. As always, I'll maintain some skepticism until there is some data, especially since estimates of the gallons of fuel per acre that are supposed to be produced seem too good to be true. Certainly we need to ditch the use of corn as a source of ethanol pronto, given the deleterious effect it's having on food prices.
