During his campaign, Obama promised to make energy prices skyrocket, and he has certainly delivered. But not to worry, he has a new plan that will meet our energy needs without allowing drilling or pipelines. We’ll just use algae:
“We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae — you’ve got a bunch of algae out here,” Obama said at the University of Miami [yesterday]. “If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing all right. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America.”
Turning algae into gasoline is simple. All you do is have Ben Bernanke print up piles of money, then throw the money at the algae:
The Department of Energy (DOE) currently spends about $85 million on 30 research projects “to develop algal biofuels,” according to the White House, which announced that Obama is committing another $14 million to the idea.
During the last Republican debate, John King foolishly asked the candidates to describe themselves in one word. Summing up Barack Hussein Obama in one word is easy: FARCE.
