Always finding new and inventive ways to piss our money away.

(CNSNews.com) – One year after President Obama was mocked for including algae in his “all-of-the-above” energy strategy, his Energy Department is pressing ahead with efforts to turn algae into fuel.

On Thursday, the department announced “up to $10 million to help unlock the potential of biofuels made from algae.”

The money will go to research projects aimed at making algae cultivation systems more productive (getting more of it per acre); and developing energy-efficient and low-cost algae harvesting and processing technologies.
