Mainstream Media “Discovers” Algae Biofuel, and it’s a Good Chuckle [Video]

If you’ve been a reader of Gas 2.0 for any length of time, you’ll know that we’ve been reporting on algae biofuel for, well, that entire length of time. Yet, seeing as the blogosphere is apparently full of nothing but pathetic liars (thank you Ms. Palin), I’m sure you’ve been on the seat of your pants wondering when the shining beacon of television news would truly validate algae’s potential.

Fear not intrepid reader, seems that the MSM has finally discovered algae too. During a recent installment of their “Energy Fix” segment, CNN has latched on to algae biofuel as the next big thing in renewable energy. Regardless of the laughability of the anchors, the segment is actually worth watching if for no other reason than to get a close up look at OriginOil’s Helix Bioreactors.

Besides, you know it’s gonna be good when the segment is hosted by an anchor named Poppy Harlow. Video after the jump…

    What numbnut news anchors. It’s like moron conversing with idiot. To be fair, here is so much information in this segment these days, if you have no analytical faculties, you can’t tell one from the other.

    Why must all these green sites that i find so fascinating, be so anti-conservative? This, plus the perpetual motion machine from a few months ago, Goodbye.

    Chris,

    Why is it that when I simply state what Palin said I’m being “anti-conservative”? She did call bloggers pathetic liars.

    Nonetheless, you’ll just have to deal with the fact that the vast majority of “greenies” are not conservatives.

    Of course, there are conservatives who are also greenies (you included, I’m guessing?), and you’ll find a number of our authors fall into that category. In fact, if you spend any time on this site, you’ll find that it is dominated by rational discussion and realistic viewpoints — regardless of whether you want to label yourself as a conservative, liberal, cheesepuff, or cornflake.

    I liked it, because it keeps people a little skeptical, and the skepticism gives me that much more time to invest in this and some other similar tickers before they get to the dollar mark. A bit selfish maybe, but algae fuel will come around regardless, the stats in it’s behalf are really quite promising, and the “if” they mentioned on CNN is not an “if” it’s a “when”. Americans are notorious for the “can do” spirit, among others, but we make it happen and the world knows it. I consider myself conservative, yet a bit liberal too, whatever, I love the potential.

    New Zealand Air flew a “test flight” using oil derived from a plant seed, successfully. There are many fuel alternatives, the reason that none have been brought to the spotlight is simply economics. They may be cheap to make, but distribution seems to be a big factor.
