British Royal Society Calls For Research

British Royal Society Calls For Research

The British Royal Society in 2008 called for experiments with ocean pasture replenishment and restoration. The very same experiments we completed in 2012.

And guess what?

IT JUST WORKS!

Here’s a link to a video with Richard Lampitt who heads this work in the UK.

Professor Lampitt has just published a paper in the Journal Nature where he states that ocean plankton consume hundreds of billions of tonnes of CO2 annually.  His research proves that much of that ocean pasture carbon, plankton,  sinks into the deep ocean where it is out of the atmospheric cycle for time frames far longer than the carbon in the average forest.

Lampitt and others at major ocean science institutions have long been calling for a larger more sustainable set of ocean restoration trials starting at a size of 100km X 100km. Their ISIS consortia has been seeking more than $100 million in public funding to conduct the trials at that scale.

An interesting note is that the work we did in 2012 is a clone of the ISIS proposal performed for about 1% of their budget. Needless to say those institutions waiting patiently at the trough of their design have been noone too happy seeing the work being done for such a tiny fraction of the cost.

 

As for other results when one becomes a caring steward of ocean pastures and works to replenish and restore them. .

Here’s one.
