Discussing Energy Alternatives in the Phoenix

I make my debut in the Providence Phoenix this week, with an article on the possibility of turning factory-grown algae into home heating oil, right here in Rhode Island.
However, my article may get upstaged by this “Almost Famous” item about someone else familiar to RI blog readers…

It’s official: the days of calling the Phoenix Communist are over.

“the days of calling the Phoenix Communist are over.”
First of all – algae?? Too much like seaweed – a requisite of that lefty/hippie diet, macrobiotics.
Secondly, right-wingers want their oil created the way God intended: pumped out of the Texas ground or, better yet, from pristine waters offshore. With a minimum of environmental and other regulations, thereby maximizing the opportunity for oil slicks, oil-drenched water fowl and miles of those cool buoys.
In short, Rhody, this borderline commie article, though penned by a right leaning author, in no way moves the Providence Phoenix towards bi-partisanship.

When did you join the Communist Party? 🙂
We have plenty of algae over at Willett Pond in Riverside, if anyone is in need!
By the way, I’m all for alternative energy — all of the above, baby! Wind farms, solar panels, nuclear, tidal, biomass, clean coal, natural gas, you name it!
PS I’ve got a local alternative energy idea … how about incinerating all the trash at the Central Landfill in Johnston? More energy, plus it extends the life of Mt. Trashmore indefinitely. I’m sure it can be done is a reasonably “environmentally friendly” way (I don’t think leaving a pile of trash to just fester and rot on it’s own is “environmentally friendly” to anyone).
