quite an intriguing idea: to use pond scum to generate power, in the process feeding it with CO2 and NOx and other waste gases.
i do hope they do not induce mutations in the algae that lead to the old B-movie staple of scum monsters such as "The Thing from Crater Lake" or whatever.
we are seeing necessity as the mother of invention. the arabs raising oil prices has this salutary effect on creativity as people explore alternatives with a vengeance. short term gain leads to long term loss for them. good, couldn't happen to a more deserving crowd.
