    Ok so the Drudge report is little more than a news site that compiles and links to international and domestic news in the MSM. What's the point here?

    Exxon-Mobil probably won't be liking this.
    If it was workable, Exxon-Mobil would be doing it themselves.

    I just wonder how much tax payer money was wasted on this.

    Did you know Exon Mobile has put over $60,000,000 into researching algae use in making bio fuels ? It's one of those deductions that the capitalist haters love to scorn.

    It's not. Why do you think they want to double gas prices.
