RLP"D Ignoring, dishonest and proud like a Progressive
Poor RLP'D that was about how insane and delusional solar really is.
Algae or perhaps bacteria will likely have some practical application.
But it will never be base load. Just because something is not base load does not mean it can not have viable economic applications. Much like China uses wind mills far off the grid where capital cost and transmission loss changes the economics.
What Progressives are doing is perverting science into religion for the simple minded dogmatic believers. So we have $200 billion wasted on completely delusion base load solutions crossing the line into evil be starving human being for special interest corruption.
Oh and methanol is already an advanced fuel. It is also more efficient in algae or bacteria production.
Ethanol is the ultimate delusion of Progressive dark hearts.
Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM)’s $600 million foray into creating motor fuels from algae may not succeed for at least another 25 years because of technical hurdles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rex Tillerson said.
So far, scientists haven’t been able to develop a strain of algae that reproduces quickly enough and behaves in a manner that would produce enough raw material to supply a refinery, Tillerson said in an interview that aired yesterday on PBS television’s “Charlie Rose” show.
“We’ve come to understand some limits of that technology, or limits as we understand it today, which doesn’t mean it’s limited forever,” Tillerson said. The venture is “probably further” than 25 years away from successfully developing fuels.
Exxon, the world’s biggest maker of gasoline and diesel, has been studying the potential for algae-based fuels for 3 1/2 years in a joint venture with J. Craig Venter’s Synthetic Genomics Inc. When the project was announced in July 2009, Exxon predicted it could produce fuels in five to 10 years.
So, you just continue with the distractor-chatter that has nothing to do with Linn Energy..lol...
So, should we interpret that as you being short?
.....just clutter up the board with algae, or sulphur content of things that do not contain sulphur, or old posts that you make reference to about space solar farms, call it names, yet also leave out the context that the original post about it all together....that is expected....keep up the half-of-the story since we kinda expect to see only the one side that you like...
SO, back to Linn Energy.
You seemed to think that oil production from Monterey Shale was huge. You posted fairly little about it or how Linn will be expanding or how Berry produces in California using STEAM.......so remember your old post?
Here is part:
"California is sitting on a massive amount of shale oil and could become the next oil boom state. But only if the industry can get the stuff out of the ground without upsetting the state's powerful environmental lobby.
Running from Los Angeles to San Francisco, California's Monterey Shale is thought to contain more oil than North Dakota's Bakken and Texas's Eagle Ford -- both scenes of an oil boom that's created thousands of jobs and boosted U.S. oil production to the highest rate in over a decade.
In fact, the Monterey is thought to hold over 400 billion barrels of oil, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. That's nearly half the conventional oil in all of Saudi Arabia.
"Four hundred billion barrels, that doesn't escape anyone in this businesses," said Stephen Trammel, energy research director at IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates.
As a result of the San Andres fault, California's geologic layers are folded like an accordion rather than simply stacked on top of each other like they are in other Shale states. The folds have naturally cracked the shale rock, and much of California's current "conventional" oil production -- the third largest in the nation - is thought to come from the Monterey.
here he is again starting the same topic that you said should not be on the LINE board. What say you now, to your buddy. We will let you handle this one. Just let him know how you feel. This would be, just incase he missed your post to RLP. about not discussing ethanol and other subjects on this board, EXCEPT LINE.
