Thumbs up Algae... not so bad after all?

I came across this article recently, and thought some people might like to know that their pesky algae might not be so bad after all. (Ok, maybe we don't want it in our fish tanks, but how about in our gas tanks?)

thank you. I actually had a class with one of the researchers... sadly, he is not fascinating. Although I did get to hold a vial of algae biodeseil which was fun.

They also need to convert it for home heating too instead of using oil.
