Algea Farms = fuel & Earth friendly products = $ = jobs = community resources.
We propose algae farming to create fuel and other valuable products. Oregon could easily become a leader in this rapidly advancing technology. No other resource has as much potential for making oil. Algae removes CO2 from the atmosphere at a higher rate than any other living organism, it removes pollutants from water, it can be used for fertilizer and livestock feed, and it can be converted into fuel! There is great opportunity for many new jobs and training by advancing this industry in Oregon. In addition, there are educational and community partnerships to be made, as well as money to be earned! This investment will bring back profits that can be dropped back into the community. Can you imagine a State were schools were funded by something more than taxpayer money and lottery funds? WOW!
you've just got to cheerlead ideas like this - I like this idea, oregon really should be a leader in energy ideas like this. please also see my idea about paving roads with solar panels, run by a publicly owned utility in conjunction with ODOT.
