Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
IANA specialist, but claims that algae are the coming thing have been around for a while now, and industrial production still isn't coming online. On the contrary, the evidence of this NYT article is that research seems to need to focus on genetic engineering to approach a result, which smacks of desperation.

Personally, I too find genetic engineering of simple and easily-disseminated life forms like algae dangerous. This is the future of liquid fuels? I prefer to hope not.
