Plan to dump iron into the oceans to capture carbon.

  • The connection between iron dumping and the climate mess is obvious. Glaciers in Antarctica did provide the most iron rich dust to the sea and surprisingly the cold water contains more fish than warmer waters...

    Now the dust dispenser - the shell ice has largely disappeared in some places. Thanks to climate change.

    years and actual climate change which can only ! be measure with some statistical significance over a period of at least 30 years.

    We have climate data lasting for about 1 million years in the best case. Dendrology can give you up to 7000 years with high precision. Satellites cover 40..50 years with increasing precision. Thus from a science point of view everything is clear. Most of the last 100 year warming >80% & ocean acidification is man made.

    But who opposes iron dumping? Guess? The usual FM/... mafia....

  • Looks like the US government is getting involved in Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR). They don't come out and say ocean seeding, but how many ways are there to use the oceans to remove, and/or sequestrate CO2? In typical bureaucratic fashion, there are so many alphabet agencies, departments, offices, etc. involved, I can't list them all! Here are 2:

    Press Release |

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $36 million for 11 projects across 8 states to accelerate the development of marine carbon dioxide removal (mCDR) capture and storage technologies. Funded through DOE’s Sensing Exports of Anthropogenic Carbon through Ocean Observation (SEA-CO2) program, these projects will support novel efforts to measure, report, and validate mCDR and identify cost-effective and energy efficient carbon removal solutions. Advancing innovative approaches like mCDR to slash greenhouse gas pollution is critical to the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to tackle the climate crisis and achieve a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.

    OST Activities and Products | National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (

    The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is announcing a new Fast-Track Action Committee (FTAC) on Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal. Under the authority of OSTP’s National Science and Technology Council, the Committee will evaluate the merits of and concerns about different types of marine CDR and shape relevant policy and research on safe and effective marine CO2 removal and carbon sequestration
