    The United States needs billions of tons of biomass every year for biofuel. Corn, soybeans and other land crops are most common but come with indirect negative environmental impacts, along with the economic and moral consequences of choosing between food or fuel.With three quarters of the planet covered in water, kelp might be part of the solution. That theory is...
