'…The Energy Department estimates that if algae fuel replaced all the petroleum fuel in the United States, it would require 15,000 square miles, which is a few thousand miles larger than Maryland…it’s being tested at several power plants across the nation as a carbon absorber. Smokestack emissions can be diverted directly into the ponds, feeding the algae while keeping greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere.’

RAF Tornados carry out their first Air Strike in Iraq in support of #OpSHADER
#RAF Tornado jets have carried out their first air strikes in support of the democratic #Iraqi Government. Two Tornado GR4 aircraft were conducting an armed reconnaissance mission when re-tasked. The aircraft assisted Kurdish troops in North West Iraq who were under attack from #ISIL terrorists. On arriving overhead, the RAF patrol, using their Litening III targeting pod, identified an ISIL armed pick-up truck in the same area and conducted an attack on the vehicle using a Brimstone missile. An initial assessment indicates that both precision strikes were successful.
