    Some how I messed up the title of this thread, Sorry. Wont let me edit it. If a mod can edit the title, just make it the same as the first bold line in the quote. That would be a better title than the crazy BS I put in there.

    I have no idea where that title came from, Random copy and paste I guess.

    A $12 millions dollar grant to build fragile peat islands to lower CO2 levels just doesnt' get me tremendously excited.

    More good news. I'm watching Discover Channel. Tis is off memory. 3ts a commercial and I'm no scientist, but here goes. The nutrient rich water in the ocean that would grow plancton is 1000 feet down. So they built these huge pumps that bring this water to the surfice. The plancton captures co2. Enough to wipe out all the polution we let off.

    Science is amazing. Lets see if it does anything negative to the environment. So far it sounds good. 60 miles off hawaii.

    i'll post more if I hear some more interesting facts. show is called Discovery Project Earth.

    We'll figure this problem out.

    I hope you are right, but I think it is too late. I think we are screwed.

    The show is over. This is new stuff. Not actually happening yet, but looks promising. But, no telling what side affects to mother nature. Could bring up toxins not good for us or wildlife. could cause chain reaction, etc. I think we can capture and recycle carbon polution this way. capture chinas, indias, europes. they'll all pay, except china. they'll just steal it.
