Thus, the most productive biomass is algae. Efficiencies of greater than 10% have been shown in the laboratory, and one way to help the environment while making a profit is to bubble fossil fuel power plant stack gases into an algae raceway so that carbon, sulfur and nitrogen oxides can be reduced, while producing a marketable product. I was involved with several such projects beginning in the 70’s, and the prospects are now improved with genetic engineering and the future possibility of a carbon tax.
Don’t! It would be a waste to produce ethanol, for example, and burn it for electricity. Use any liquid biofuel for transportation.
Interesting how these ocean storms are following the same general track as their predecessors even though there should be a cooling effect caused by the upwelling.
The Blue Revolution Hawaii Board met today and, in addition to helping solve the problems of Hawaii and the World, had a photo taken, with Guy via the power of electronics

Then dinner at Ming's with Christina, Grace, Ed and Jeff
The bon voyage gathering was hosted by Grace and Ed Cheng (with a Yellow Flower Fish from China in the foreground):
Ming's specializes in Shanghai cuisine. An excellent meal with bottles of Meritage and Pinot Noir.
