The president’s solution? Algae, for one.
There are no quick fixes to the nation’s eneergy problem, the president said, dismissing Republican calls for more drilling as a “bumper sticker.”
“We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline and diesel and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance — algae,” the president said at a campaign stop in Florida. “You’ve got a bunch of algae out here, right? If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing all right.”
