Default Re: Science Saturday: What Will Power the Future? (Maggie Koerth-Baker & Christina Agapakis)

From what I've heard, dumping iron in the ocean to create algae hasn't worked very well. I think it might have been because the algae die and then release CO2. But directly going after carbon could be a better deal than inducing "global cooling" because even if the planet got to the right temperature, carbon concentration can increase the acidity of the ocean.
