Alternative Energies

I would personally love a public official or higher authority come out and congratulate the men and women who are making alternative energies possible. The technicians and engineers who build and design better and more efficient energies for the people of the world. In my opinion it would bring much needed attention to the development and production of alternative energies. Alternative energies have been long underfunded and uncared for. One of the least known about is biofuel. Biofuel is synthesized from biological substances such as corn, peanut, or soy. One of the arguments against biofuel is that large scale production could cause a rise in food prices, this may be true but biofuel can be synthesized from algae. The algae would be grown in ponds and then processed to produce biofuel. The price of biofuel is competitive with the price of gasoline or diesel meaning you would not have to pay much more for biofuel. Biofuel production would create jobs as well as diminish our addiction for crude oil.


Has everyone completely forgotten about the BP oil spill? It seems like people forget important subjects whenever it is convenient for them. Something like the BP oil spill should at least get daily air time if not for just a few minutes. The people are still dealing with the aftermath and they still need your help. Write to BP or write to congress and ask them to allocate more funds for the people who's lives have been destroyed by this tragedy. Remember 1 email = 1000 people, your email will carry some serious weight.
