People snickered when, after pushing the price of fossil fuels through the stratosphere as he promised he would, Obama proposed meeting our energy needs with algae. Now that moonbats have developed a light that actually runs on the gunk, the snickers have stopped — giving way to guffaws.
[Pierre] Calleja has developed a lighting system that requires no electricity for power. Instead it draws CO2 from the atmosphere and uses it to produce light as well as oxygen as a byproduct. The key ingredient to this eco-friendly light? Algae. …
Cajella’s lamps consist of algae-filled water along with a light and battery system. During the day the algae produce energy from sunlight that is then stored in the batteries. Then at night the energy is used to power the light. However, as the algae can also produce energy from carbon, sunlight isn’t required for the process to work. That means such lights can be placed where there is no natural light and the air will effectively be cleaned on a daily basis.
If the government runs out of ways to “stimulate” the economy by deliberately wasting money, it could try building pyramid-sized algae lamps throughout the country. A few hundred thousand of them ought to clean up all that nasty CO2 and save the polar bears from their imaginary plight.
