    involving algae to produce gasoline directly, which is fed by CO2 we sequester. If this can be truly industrialized on a mass scale, we might not need to use OIL for any stupid purpose like burning, and save it for plastics and chemicals.

    But all methods should be pursued, pumping into the ground, making cement, feeding algae, and whatever other ideas we can come up with.

    If we can make coal power plants that have little emissions, we can keep our economies going, growing, and the rest of the developing world can join us, all without killing the planet.

    In the big picture, oil and gas are actually way too important in chemical and plastics to be burning them just to drive around and heat the house. It's nutz on it's face, not to mention insanely polluting.
