Geoengineering: Does Dumping Iron in the Ocean Sequester CO2
Original story by Alexis Madrigal of the Wired Blog network (click on “read more” below).
If we made the globe warm, we can make the globe cool. That’s the premise and promise of geoengineering, the name given to intentional attempts to alter the climate.
“Ken Buesseler a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute spoke on the science of this process, known as ocean iron fertilization…His talk came a week after Planktos, one of two iron fertilization startups, indefinitely suspended its operations…the leading scientists in the field don’t have enough confidence to say that ocean iron fertilization could have any real impact on stopping or even slow climate change.”
