Can't some bright spark extract something from seeweed that would run a car?

Fucus! (it's pronounced fyookus fortunately). Fucus Serratus this one is, one of the species that were cut dried and burnt as 'kelp'. It's not edible but a lot of the brown seaweeds around the Orkney shore are.

Nice pic Hamish. I hadn't seen that stuff for years. It brings back many memories of childhood in Orkney seaside joy.
