Lovelock urges ocean climate fix


news.bbc.co.uk

Two of Britain's leading environmental thinkers say it is time to develop a quick technical fix for climate change.

Writing in the journal Nature, Science Museum head Chris Rapley and Gaia theorist James Lovelock suggest looking at boosting ocean take-up of CO2.

Their idea, already being investigated by a US firm, involves huge flotillas of vertical pipes in the tropical seas.

The two scientists say they doubt that existing plans for curbing carbon emissions can work quickly enough.

I found this interesting because this is an active way of trying to change the global warming situation. As opposed to energy conservation, or changing fuels or sources of energy, this method is trying to increase the amount of green house gases the ocean absorbs. Personally I fear this will have great and catastrophic effects on marine life, although be it I am rather sure the oil companies are loving every minuet of it.
