  1. 4. What information did you find the most convincing and why?

    The information that I found most convincing was that a lot of the wars are mostly about fighting over resources, by creating a more equitable distribution and that if countries could be able to make there own it should to a more stable and peaceful world.

    First of all, I think that that is the most convincing information because if there would be no more war than not as many people would get killed or get hurt, and would have their own resources.

    Second of all, I think is another reason is that if we would create and use a more equitable distribution than there would be not as much climate change as there is right now.

    Third of all, I think is also another reason is that if we would use a more equitable distribution then all the nutrients are captured in the algae which means that all the nutrients cannot run off.

    In conclusion, I think that it is a good idea to make algae so the environment is more clean and better. And it also only needs a good supply of carbon dioxide and a lot of sunshine.

  2. 1. What information did you find the most convincing and why?

    I found convincing about the diesel fuel or jet fuel and if every that if every power plant had an algae farm it could save the global warming. They didn’t give up on any of the critical issues. That the fuel is going to be used for the cars and it is going to be at the gas station and that there is going to be more food for animals.

    2. Why?

    Because for the first one if the world is going to use the coal or something else soon there is not going to be no coal that’s why the world should use something else. On the second one, they didn’t give up because they knew that if they give up their project might fail. If all he fuel is going to be used up there need to be some other fuel. If there is no food that means humans and living creatures are going to die but if there is no water the food is not going to grow. The scientist found another way to grow plants to not waste water and there is bigger chance that the global warming is going to be saved.

  3. Write an overview of the whole clip, as if you were explaining the clip to someone who has not watched it.

    This project is called a Dried algae product and it can change the fossil fuel industry. Algae is easy to grow and It is able to flourish just about anywhere. It can glow in the freshwater, seawater or brackish water. Algal need really clean air and sunshine. It is made by drying the algae and after that, grinding it up into the powder, and then extract the oil out of it. That oil can use for jet fuel , gasoline and diesel fuel. They made this idea because people use a lot of fossil fuel, Global warming is progressing and around the world, we have wars.

    They think they can make big difference, It can stop global warming, it can clean the water and It can stop deforestation. Algae biofuel could be used in engines that we already have. The power plants capture carbon dioxide and avoid that discharge and reuse it. It could potentially solve the global warming issue. The issue is that the costs are too high throughout the entire process and associated with large-scale production. They have solutions within the next few years.

    They want to able to make that oil in the own countries and make more stable and peaceful world.

  4. Global Algae Innovations:
    What information did you find most interesting and why?
    The information I found most convincing was…

    When the guy told us about when people use biofuel, they just use biofuel but in this case, every gallon of biofuel has 10 pounds of food with it. I found this information convincing and interesting because this could change the world.

    1 gallon of oil would’ve been 30 dollars when they first opened the organisation but now, it has dropped down to 2 or 3 dollars. This is way better because it is way cheaper and easier to make so that the people use it instead of fossil fuels, which destroys the earth.

    Also that this could stop wars by giving countries an equal amount of oil because most of the wars begin because of fights of resources. This could happen if the company gave all of the countries the same amount of oil so that the countries don’t fight.

    In conclusion, the oil that this company has made will change the world if it is offered around the world. Also if people start using this oil instead of fossil fuels or others that hurt or affect the planet in a bad way. This oil is cheap, good for the planet and not so hard to make.

  5. I think that if Vietnam would have something like that the country would be less polluted and it would be better and easier to make things, Vietnam would have more nature and less poverty and it would also create less war. It would also help the nature because the oil is cleaner so if you fill up your car with the clean oil what would come out your car will not be as polluting. It would also help the food we eat because if now we eat the food that grow in pollution and it is not good for our bodies.

    It would create less poverty because the company creates more jobs and people could get more money. It would create less war because people create war because they create fights over resources.

    The way they describe it in the video is that the fuel is the same as gasoline and desorjet but it’s just a lot cleaner. That means that for example what you put in your car is still fuel but it is cleaner. I think that the company is a really good thing that they are thing to bo to the world, the person that thought about the oil is really going to change the pollution of the world.

  6. Write an overview of the whole clip, as if you were explaining the clip to someone who has not watched it.

    Dave Hazelbeck is the founder of the CEO and global algae innovations a company grows algae which he thinks that could change the food and oil production.
    This clip is about how algae could change the fossil fuel industry. Instead of using fossil fuel, they use algae to make fuel. It is way cleaner and better for the environment, it doesn’t cause global warming. Algae grow on water and it also needs carbon dioxide and sunlight to grow.
    Dave Hazelbeck is the founder of the CEO and global algae innovations a company grows algae which he thinks that could change the food and oil production
    When they got the algae, they leave it to dry. After the algae is dry, they grind it into powder and they extract the oil out of it. That oil is then refined into diesel fuel or jet fuel. The oil that they are make has exactly same terms performance as gasoline, diesel or jet but just a lot cleaner. The difference is that all the other biofuel you are growing, you just get biofuel, but for every 1 gallon of the fuel you made from the algae you get 10 pounds of food with it. It changes a large percentage of animal feeding. The leading cause for deforestation is for food production. Since there is algae oil now, It might stop deforestation.

  7. What information did you find most convincing and why?
    The information I found most convincing or/and interesting was…

    When the guy was tells us about when people use biofuel, they just use bio fuel but in this case, every gallon of biofuel has 10 pounds of food with it. I found this information convincing and interesting because this could change the world.

    1 gallon of oil would’ve been 30 dollars when they first opened the organisation but now, it has dropped down to 2 or 3 dollars. This is way better because it is way cheaper and easier to make so that

    I Also think that this could stop wars or make wars happen less often by giving countries an equal amount of oil each, because most of the wars begin because of lack of resources and fight over those resources. I found this interesting and convincing because this is very safe which makes me relieved and happy. I would be relieved because than the earth wouldn’t be as dangerous and I would be happy because there are no more wars so less people get hurt.

    I think that having a company like this is very good Because the world would be much safer and less dangerous for people to live.

  8. What information did you find the most convincing and why?
    Algae Fuel is one of the best fuel created. I think This fuel Is very convincing to me and should be to everyone. This fuel can change the whole world for the better. This fuel can reduce pollution, help stop land and fuel wars, use as food for animals, and more. This fuel can power up many things. This algae fuel is made out of carbon dioxide, water, and plants that have dried up.

    This Algae fuel is very convincing to the world. Why? One reason is that algae can reduce air pollution which saves the world it also does not affect the environment. The second reason is that this fuel uses only 3 resources from the earth. Those material are eco-friendly and uses things that we need to clean our world.

    Another reason is that countries and companies do not have to fight for land or water for fossil fuel. This fuel should replace fossil fuel because this fuel is as powerful enough to power a plane. This fuel can also stop poverty. This fuel provides a job.

    In conclusion, Algae fuel is one of the best fuel that can save the world. This fuel has many convincing answers to the world and should be used all around the world.

  9. What information did you find the most convincing and why?

    What information that convinced me the most is that their work is extremely important.
    Here are some reasons why their work is extremely important:
    It can solve global warming. The world desperately needs “Algae” biofuels and protein. It is going to have a big impact on reducing poverty. It will bring more and better jobs for people to work. It’s too important for the world to not have it. It replaces a large amount of animal feed. When we grow “Algae”, there’s no runoff. All the nutrients are captured in the “Algae. If we plant 4,000 acres of “Algae”, that’s 40,000 acres don’t need to be planted. It’s gonna have a big impact economically. He has started this company so these reasons can happen quickly. In simple terms, “Algae” is fairly easy to grow and it’s able to grow, and it’s able to flowish just about anywhere. Whether it’s fresh water, sea water, or brackish water. If every power plant had an “Algae” farm next to it, it can potentially solve the global warming issue entirely. So that is why I think that what they convinced me that their work is extremely important.

  10. Give a brief overview of the clip and explain your ideas on how this action could be implemented in Vietnam.
    Algae has the same effect as fossil fuel, just that it’s a lot cleaner. If every company were using algae, it could solve global warming. “The world needs it.” Says the creator.
    It used to cost a lot, like 30 dollars per gallon, but with technological improvement, now it costs like 1 dollar per gallon.

    I think this could be done in VietNam as it has a lot of rivers. The only problem is that it would cause Deforestation. But I think it’s Okay as long as for every tree that is being cut, a new one is planted. This would really help VietNam as it has so many cars and motos. VietNam really needs that algae fuel. It would make the air so much cleaner and it would help VietNam so much.

    For example, when the air is so polluted you can barely breathe. With the algae fuel, It won’t happen that often.

    Another example is that that invention may actually inspire other people to create something else that would help the environment.

    In conclusion, I think that algae fuel is great invention and I would Love to see it happen also in VietNam.

  11. Write an overview of the whole clip, as if you were explaining the clip to someone who has not watched it.
    This clip is about how algae could change the fossil fuel industry. Instead of using fossil fuel, they use algae to make fuel. It is way cleaner and better for the environment, it doesn’t cause global warming. Algae grow on water and it also needs carbon dioxide and sunlight to grow.

It changes a large percentage of animal feeding. The leading cause for deforestation is for food production. Since there is algae oil now, It might stop deforestation.

  12. What information did you find most convincing and why?

    In the video I learned that for every acre of algae thats four acres of crops don’t need to be planted also that if every power plant had a algae farm next to it, it could solve global warming

    Give a brief overview of the clip and explain your ideas on how this action could be implemented in Vietnam.

    I think if Vietnam used this kind of fuel for all their energy needs then we could cut down on the pollution not just in Vietnam but also around the world,
    Vietnam is one of the five country’s most responsible for pollution and trash so if we can cut down on global warming and also it could hinder the amount of plastic being thrown into the ocean and fish eating it. Also it could make the air a lot cleaner since we wouldn’t use gasoline to fuel our cars,motorbikes and buses. Also other country’s would be influenced by Vietnam so it could solve a lot of other country’s problems to!

  13. Algae fuel might be the start to a whole new world that will be healthier and safer to live in. It will prevent air pollution, and deforestation. If every single power plant had an algae farm next to it, it would reduce and potentially get rid of global warming. Since algae can grow anywhere with carbon dioxide it could be possible to accomplish this.

    We could produce diesel and gas out of algae, and even use it to produce electricity. Also, we wouldn’t have to create any other type of engine systems since algae diesel would work already existing engines, and that means that during the next few years we could start getting gas stations to sell the new environmentally healthy product.

    While producing this food we not only get a healthier planet but we get lo lbs of food with every gallon we make of algae fuel. This means that we could potentially reduce the amount of hunger and maybe find someway to get this food to the less fortunate people on our planet. This might reduce and fix 3 of our SDG’s. SDG seven, two, and one.

    In Vietnam this could reduce the amount of diseases people get here because of the bad air quality. For example things like ischaemic heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and acute lower respiratory infections in children. This would even help accomplish SDG 3. We could have healthier people working here and make it safer to live here. It would save the lives of the next generation. Half of Vietnam’s population dies because diseases similar to these. Algae fuel won’t only reduce air pollution and global warming but it might save lives.

  14. Give an overview of a clip to someone who has not watched it.
    In the beginning of the video, Mr. Dave Hazelbeck of the Global algae innovations, said what exactly the algae fuel was. He explained how they got from a dry algae product to diesel fuel or jet fuel. The way they do this is by grinding up the dry algae into a powder and then extract the oil out of it. Then that oil is refined (cleaned) and then it is usable for diesel or jet fuel. He then explains how it is just a good as typical fossil fuels but cleaner and how it can be better than other biofuels.
    Then he explains how it can help combat global warming. He says it can be used to b animal feed. Also, it can combat deforestation because the leading cause of deforestation is for food, and algae produces forty times as much food per acre so less trees need to be cut down.
    Then, Mr. Hazelbeck talks about algae fuel’s benefits to the world and how it can reduce poverty, and make positive changes economically. He then goes to an algae raceway ad talks about the sizes of the algae raceways. The algae farm he was on was near a power plant so they can capture carbon dioxide and use it to grow the algae. In simple terms, they say algae can flourish anywhere as long as it has a good supply of carbon dioxide and sunshine.
    Then, Mr. Hazelbeck talks about the problems with the algae fuel. He says that the overall cost throughout the process is too high. But then he explains about some of the other benefits of algae fuel like how it could prevent wars because if countries can make their own fuel, there will be less fights over resources. Then in the last few minutes of the video there was an advertisement going more in-depth about algae fuel. Then the video ended.

  15. What information did you find the most convincing and why?

    In video have lots of information but I have only three that I think is most convincing information.

    When the dried algae product after dry it they grind it up to powder, and then they extract the oil out of it.

    These are most convincing to me because when dried algae product after dry it they grind up to powder. This mean dry the dried algae product it will be powder.

    And then they extract the oil out of it. I understand this like in the powder that dried algae made have the oil and global algae innovations people extract the oil out of it.

    That oil is refined into diesel fuel or jet fuel. Dave Hazlebeck think that the big difference is that all the other biofuels, you’re growing it, you’re just getting biofuel.

    This is convincing because Dave Hazlebeck is global algae innovations. This information understand me that big difference that all the other biofuels is we are growing it and we are getting biofuel.

    All these information understand me what video is about and what is the video main idea. The video main idea is biofuels and video is about fossil fuel.

  16. Algae fuel might be the start to a whole new world that will be healthier and safer to live in.It will prevent air pollution, and deforestation. If every single power plant had an algae farm next to it, it would reduce and potentially get rid of global warming. Since algae can grow anywhere with carbon dioxide it could be possible to accomplish this.

    We could produce diesel and gas out of algae, and even use it to produce electricity.
    Also, we wouldn’t have to create any other type of engine systems since algae diesel would work already existing engines, and that means that during the next few years we could start getting gas stations to sell the new environmentally healthy product.

    While producing this fuel we not only get a healthier planet but we get 10 lbs of food with every gallon we make of algae fuel. This means that we could potentially reduce the amount of hunger and maybe find someway to get this food to the less fortunate people on our planet. This might reduce and fix 3 of our SDG’s. SDG seven, two, and one.

    In Vietnam this could reduce the amount of diseases people get here because of the bad air quality. For example things like ischaemic heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and acute lower respiratory infections in children. This would even help accomplish SDG 3. We could have healthier people working here and make it safer to live here. It would save the lives of the next generation. Half of Vietnam’s population dies because diseases similar to these. Algae fuel won’t only reduce air pollution and global warming but it might save lives.

  17. I think that artificial algae is a valuable invention, and now I have some benefits.

    First of all, these artificial algae can extract some oil. We know that according to scientists, the oil can only be used for 30 to 40 years at the most, so now the whole world is launching a war for oil, which can replace the oil to drive the car. , planes, etc., so if this project is successful, then no longer need to fight for oil.

    Second, global warming is now very serious, and these algae grow under conditions of sunlight and air, so they can effectively prevent the increase of global warming.

    Third, they can also purify water and prevent the cutting of trees.

    The only drawbacks of this project are the high cost and the excessive size of the equipment. But I believe that scientists will be able to find a solution in a few years

  18. Task : Write an overview of the whole video/clip.

    In the clip an organisation called Global Algae Innovations they grow algae and dry it, then they grind it and take all the oil out of it then that oil is refined and turned into jet fuel or diesel, this is good for the environment unlike fossil fuels, Global algae innovations might have found a way to clear out most of global warming, they will know a solution in the next few years. It won’t only stop the gas from the cars because if one of the global algae innovations is placed next to a factory they can re – use the carbon dioxide to help grow the algae.

    You can grow algae in any type of body of water freshwater or saltwater as long as it gets enough carbon dioxide and sun.

    The leading cause of deforestation is food, and when you make 1 gallon of algae fuel you get 10 pounds of food. This will help stop deforestation.

    Global Algae innovations can stop some wars because a lot of wars are for resources, the algae will help because it does not pollute the earth so the crops can grow properly without the pollution killing them.

  19. I think that artificial algae is a valuable invention, and now I have some benefits.

  20. What information did you find the most convincing and why?
    I think this company is thinking about the future. Dave Hazlebeck is making clean fuel, not biofuel but algae fule.The most convincing information in the video is that the scientists make oil from dried algae so they can make plans to make fuel.If the oil is popular around the world. There will be no more global warming.
    Write an overview of the whole clip.

    The movie tells that, they use dry algae.And they grind it out to power then they extract the oil out.That oil is the same at jet oil and diesel oil. They are making oil but it’s clean oil. They think this oil can save the world.The oil can stop global warming by not using jet oil or diesel oil. Or the oil can save the animals because they need food to eat but we are digging place so they don’t have food. If all country has this oil. The world will be more clean and stable.

  21. Task : Write an overview of the whole video/clip.

    In the clip an organisation called Global Algae Innovations they grow algae and dry it, then they grind it and take all the oil out of it then that oil is refined and turned into jet fuel or diesel,
    this is good for the environment unlike fossil fuel.

    Global algae innovations might have found a way to clear out most of global warming, they will know a solution in the next few years.

    Algae fuel won’t only stop the bad gas from the cars getting into the atmosphere.

    If one of the global algae innovations is placed next to a factory they can re – use the carbon dioxide to help grow the algae.

    You can grow algae in any type of body of water freshwater or saltwater as long as it gets enough carbon dioxide and sun.

    The leading cause of deforestation is food, and when you make 1 gallon of algae fuel you get 10 pounds of food. This will help stop deforestation.

    Global Algae innovations can stop some wars because a lot of wars are for resources, the algae will help because it does not pollute the earth so the crops can grow properly without the pollution killing them.

  22. What information did you find the most convincing and why is that is cleaner than any and because it is clean it is better and also better to use than any others the other can make glowble warming but this can help the glowble warming and make the world better. If i will explain to some one who has not seen it than the algae can change fossil. It coulds change the world and that it is also really clean. I think If Viet nam use this viet nam will be a better place and also make viet nam alot cleaner and Viet nam will be less puluted and the air will also be cleaner than now.

    Viet nam will be a way better place if it was clean and have fresh air and more people will come to viet nam.But if all the world do this that the world would have better air. The world we be really clean and a better place to be in with out bad air to use and in a very bad place. Viet nam would be even better than now if use it. I think Viet nam should use this to make it a better place.

  23. The most convincing thing I saw in the video is when the said that algae fuel leftovers can be used as animal feed so people don’t need to create food for animals instead they get the leftover algae and for every gallon of algae you get 10 pounds of food with it. Why I thought it was believable is because I saw in the news that in hoan kiem lake there was lot of algae there so I know that their will be lots of algae for being food

    In the video Dave Hazelbeck told how algae is as good as normal fuel and can be used in engines we have now like airplanes engines so algae won’t need a different engine to power something. Algae fuel is a great invention because it can grow nearly everywhere and it doesn’t commit to global warming and for every pound of fuel you get food with it.Algae can be grown it sea or fresh water so they can have algae fuel everywhere.The algae can be used as food so animals can be fed and you get fuel to.If you plant 1000 acres of algae then their is 40,000 acres of crops that don’t need to be planted.Global Algae Innovations is the name of the company creating algae fuel GAI is trying to have more companies creating algae fuel around the world and not be the only ones creating algae fuel “Its to Important for it not to happen” Says Dave Hazelbeck.

    Why algae fuel will be good in Vietnam is that it can be grown anywhere and vietnam has lots of farmers for every bit of fuel you get you get food for animals as well.If all fuel was algae fuel there would be no reason to plant food for animals.
