Cowboy capitalists promote slime in your gas tank to curb carbon emissions

Two San Francisco Bay area investors – having trolled through the dizzying world of renewable fuels from wave power, to hydrogen fuel cells, to lithium batteries, to cow manure for making methane –recently launched their own company, LiveFuels Inc., to find an energy-efficient way to convert algae into fuel.

They are among hundreds, if not thousands, of start-ups in the alternative-energy business, some so tiny they are run out of home basements. But the bigger ones are beginning to take off. A handful is now building at least three demonstration plants to convert wood chips and grasses into ethanol in the United States and Canada.

Meanwhile, U.S. venture capital flowing into clean energy leapfrogged to more than $2.4 billion in 2006, more than double that invested in 2005, and more than triple from 2004, according to Clean Edge, a research and consulting firm. The numbers are small compared with the research budgets of the big oil companies, but the ascent of venture capital in renewable energy has reminded some Silicon Valley venture capitalists of the early flow of money into the Internet in the mid-1990s.

OPEC has been lobbing against genetically modified corn. Because the higher corn yields that make ethanol an energy source use genetically modified corn. As. the intensity of lobbying against GM crops increases there is NO lobbyist against growth hormones cows. Our kids are going through puberty at younger age. One of my daughters went through puberty starting at age 7, menstruating by age 8. And now I hear boys are growing breast. OPEC lobbyists pushed and won no new fuel stations. OPEC also controls the pumps so no other fuel goes into their pumps. Even though E-85, Biodiesel can be used with little or no modification to the tank below or the pump itself. Until we have a choice at every pump and stop all the lawsuits and lobbyist denouncing every alternative fuel NO matter what perspective we have. And how successful we are at producing alternative oil, if there is not enough market we will go broke trying! Demand Choice at every pump and home delivery of heating oil! ~http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/oil_from_algae/
