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

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
