    BioFuel

    I have been interested in alternative energy ever since I heard about solar cells many years ago.  My current favorite (the one I think could make the biggest overall impact in the near term) is deriving biofuel from marine algae.  I started being interested in biofuel...

    I Think We All Should

    Especially here in the US, we are so dependent on fossil fuels.  There are some that make slight changes & that is a step in the right direction.  But, I am afraid if things don't start moving along faster we may be in big trouble.
