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

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak 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 Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for 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 without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
