Eg out side the box

What we need next decade is to bore a tunnel/pipeline below sea level from Death Valley to the Pacific. Then have lagoons of fuel-producing algae in the sunlight.
As i said most all southern Oregon northern Calf. Have bad algae blumes. Making them so toxic that medium size dogs have been killed large dogs ,elderly, and small children are at risk. Commonplace for closure for swimming (people and dogs) and fishing .the 3 algae harvisting Co have th shut bown in the heat of summer. Insted of harvisting for food grade(if memory serves 12 colonies/sampale )harvest for fule grade. (13+ through 1000's of colonies). Possess the oil from the algae. I attribute this Idea to my Cusen user Tecnomage2012.

This would ceep the harvesters running roung the clock.during blumes for eather grade. Auto collection selfatounamus sun drying, just hellie in and pickup the load. Hell it could possessit to fule and bio-charr the pouder. I'm proposing a 1) toxen reduct reducer 2)carbon sequestration 3)bio-char for collecting/or reinsertion to the lake,as a toxen/chemical absorption (charcoal filter) 4) this will produce many " tons"more waste powder than need to run the system (and just putting the waste organics back in the lake would poison the water just like the microcystin currently dose) so grid tie MW power generation. 5)bio-charr for farm/ gardening soil enrichment .6)git the bio-charr hot enough and now it to will burn (the - is your freeing the carbon) to run bio mass/ coal power plants who7)recapture the carbon through greenhouses to produce animal feed or cotton in the Pacific Northwest.
Take your tunnel and add turbines to make more power than LA can use , as well as desailionaton facilitys alond the route.),Off the tidal ebb and flow. Now you have backers(water Co. power Co , FARMERS, ICC ,the put America Back to Work Initiative)for your could make Baker to Barstow a green farming belt. Now we are talking carbon suqestering. This kind of project is on the scail of presidential lik FDR's Interstate.

Is this far enough outside the box? (And I didn't even have to create any thing I just made a few different industries new nabers in a place that only lacks fresh water and clean power to be an oasis for green development )
now we just need someone to put my ideas on paper in an acceptable form for a kickstarter. As I have very well diminstrated this is NOT ONE OF MY SKILLS. (Working on it as I type this)
Gumby stay flexible
(Means don't be rigid like the box,be flexible to new and different ideas. And a reminder to me not all my ideas current technology can support. We just have to find rhe right questions to think of the right sluition)
