Is Oil from Algae the Future

Scientists have discovered that you can get biofuels from something besides corn and french fry grease. Which is good because the problem with ethanol is that is drives up food prices. Scientists have discovered that you can also get biofuels from algae. The idea of algal biofuels is easy. The microalgae automatically produces and stores lipids similar to the ones found in vegetable oil. If scientists can find a way to interfere with the tendencies algae has to store oil and make it more useful then it is in nature, then fuels for transportation vehicles might be created. Even though this seems like the answer, some problems with this are finding an efficient way to get the oil out of the algae and another problem is growing the algae at an incredibly fast rate. Hopefully the third generation of biofuels will work for us, but this process was found because of the stepping stones like corn which is why we need to start projects for solor, wind, hydrogen, and ect. because we can use those as stepping stones so it can lead us to the answer. This information was found by Bob Grant .What do you think is the answer?

Sam, this was a great post, i think maybe you should make it a bit longer, your youtube was also great-Louis
Sam good post!! not to rain on your parade but I believe that Will B already has a similar post to this that was done first trimester so I do not know if Ms. Baker will accept it.

Hey I'm Sam Fisher and I am in Miss Bakers biology class.I like to play soccer and follow sports and jet ski and tube. My favorite lab in biology was the cockroach lab because it was fun watching Erik get clawed by the cockroach. My favorite topic in biology was the animal behavior because it was fun watching the videos of animals doing cool tasks.
The player up there is kaka.He is the best in the world.


This video is funny, it is called charlie bit me.
Check this one out it is a soccer fail
