I got an idea for ya... Druegan - 22/04/2004 11:09:25 AM

For my biology class, we have to do a project that in some way helps the environment. For mine, I'm going to write a letter to one of my senators or my representative. So, what are some current environmental issues out there?

One of the biggest issues is pollution. Too much toxic stuff everywhere.. in the air, the water, the food...

If it were me, I would write to em about alternative fuels, mainly pushing for conversion of power plants and cars to hydrogen fuel.

However, if you really wanted to do a project that had the potential to knock the socks offa people..

I've heard that blue-green algae, if deprived of sulfur in their environment, change their metabolic systems to release hydrogen as a waste product.

Now, this could be total crap. But I've heard it from multiple sources. One way to try to help the environment would be to see if it really works or not. If it does, well, you've just verified a way to make hydrogen cheaply available. Which, when burned, releases nothing but chemically pure water.

Just a thought. I'd do it myself if I had access to any of the stuff.
