Weekend Open Thread: ‘Algae, Allllll-gae, When Will Those Clouds All Disappear?’

This is a “feel-good” story in all sorts of ways — a young woman excelling in science, transcending having been brought up in Florida, and possibly making a major contribution to the solution of creating clean bio-diesel energy — except for one way: the slimy feeling of the algae she has been studying.  But that’s forgivable given the rest.

Algae is going to survive whether the world heats up or not. We might as well harvest it and slow the process.

And, because only about 13% of you probably got the reference in the headline from the lyric reference alone, here you go — enjoy!

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about that, or about anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of decorum and discretion.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
