This Can't Be Good
Thursday, 2007 May 10 - 8:10 pm
A wild plan to reduce greenhouse gases.

A company called Planktos has come up with a plan to seed the ocean with iron to promote plankton growth, with the goal of taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. When plankton dies, it carries the carbon down into the ocean, trapping the carbon for centuries, or even millennia.

Does this sound, um, a little risky to anyone else but me? Do we really know what will happen with all this ecological tampering? I mean, it's a laudable goal, and maybe it will work out, but I just don't know if anyone has really thought this through.

I, for one, will welcome our new plankton overlords.

This is a horrible idea. The fact of the matter is that a lot of that carbon dioxide already gets trapped in lower levels of sea water. We are slowy killing hte ocean via C02 right now, so yes, this is a horrible idea.

Yikes! What ever happened to nice friendly CO2 sequesting ideas like planting more trees? Fortunately (or unfortunately) my job is only to explain the global warming not solve it. I don't really have any great "quick fix" ideas.
