Green Algae: A New Method To Stop Global Warming

icebergsI am happy to tell you that a team of UK scientists have discovered a method that could stop global warming. They have found that millions of tiny particles of iron are released into the southern Ocean after the melting icebergs off the coast of Antarctica. This melting will create huge ‘blooms’ of green algae that absorb carbon emissions. Then, the algae will sinks to the icy depths and for hundreds of years CO2 could be removed from the atmosphere.

This week, the scientists will make an important experiment. By releasing several tons of iron sulphate into the sea (the coast of the British island of South Georgia) they want to create a massive algae bloom. Even from space this patch will be visible.

If this technique will be a success, three and a half Gigatons of C02 will be removed and that is amazing because the planet could be saved from global warming.
