    President Obama admitted today that he does not have a "silver bullet" solution for skyrocketing gas prices, but he proposed alternative energy sources such as "a plant-like substance, algae" as a way of cutting dependence on oil by 17 percent.
    "We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae -- you've got a bunch of algae out here," Obama said at the University of Miami today. "If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we'll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America."
    The Department of Energy (DOE) currently spends about $85 million on 30 research projects "to develop algal biofuels," according to the White House, which announced that Obama is committing another $14 million to the idea.

    I think it's now official that this man has lost his mind.

    That's it! You came up with the solution, let's just make cars that run on bullshit. There's enough of that coming out of the politicians that we'll have a fuel surplus for generations. :)

    How about attaching some kind of battery source to this guys mouth , that should create enough energy for a decade.

    I don't care what they use as long as I am no longer worrying about gas and heating oil going over $5 bucks a gallon and beyond. They have have been talking about this kind of crap for decades. Time to shit or get off the pot.

    I say dig as well. Valued fuels have been discovered in such things as fossilized plants, insects, etc. Even prehistoric mammals that have been found offer us some clarity at times like these:

    I think the "jackhammer" would be appropriately applied here
