I am and for many years have been a big proponent of bio-fuels, but **not** with the ridiculously inefficient and scandalously corrupt methods now used to produce ethanol from food crops, like corn/soybeans.

As the recent book, "This Town" and several other sources describe, the political deals and, basically, bribes that form the foundation of the current ethanol industry are disgusting. And the pressure by this putrid cabal to force fuel refiners to pay for more ethanol than can actually be used in the fuel is part of an on-going fraud that enriches the ethanol industry and the duplicitous politicians who support them while simultaneously burdening the refining industry and we, the consumers, who pay inflated prices at the pump.

I sincerely and ardently hope that these students will find a commercially viable means of producing algae-based bio-fuel, if only to frustrate the aims of the current ethanol cabal, both commercial and political.

Once again USU Aggies prove that a true school doesn't need to have a football team to be a top-notch innovator in technology and engineering. Go Aggies! Changing the world for the better! :)
