Default Powering your future with pond scum

http://www.wired.com/news/print/0,1294,54456,00.html

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, also known as pond scum to us lay people, has an interesting ability. Deprive it of sulfur and oxygen (but not sunlight) and it can take water and split it into hydrogen and oxygen to get the oxygen it needs.

Then of course it's just a matter of putting it into a tank to be later fed into a hydrogen fuel cell for producing energy. The efficiency of their process is currently 10%. If they can get it up to 50% it will be cost competitive with fossil fuel.

too bad GW "oil tycoon" Bush is in office...BTW, he is guarenteed another term even if he ****s up royally down the line. Thats why his relitives are in all the key places, to rig another election, just like last time. Did you know the reporter who leaked the news of him winning the election to the other news stations after the re-counts was even related to him?

i don't doubt it, he has very strong ties the oil industry.

****, he has a very large claim in harkon energy (i believe it is harkon, it was called spectrum at some point, if that helps you economists).

you cannot place a corrupt man in power, it will only bring the country down...
