The amount of algae growth required for powering America's fleet of vehicles would cover every ocean and kill every single fish on the planet.

Land-based farms require pumping water, maintenance, energy, etc. If you build them in the desert, you suffer horrendous water losses. If you build them near the ocean, you encroach on livable and arable land.

Well, I don't hear any other message from any other environmental groups, so what am I supposed to believe?

Probably because you're intellectually lazy and don't bother looking for other environmental groups or doing some basic research about environmental issues. I guess the problem is that you absorb whatever "knowledge" is placed in front of you, without regard to its legitimacy or source.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
