On Global Warming and CO2
I reread part of your Step Farher Out from mummbelty mumble years ago & saw your support of ocean thermal power generators which, by using water from the sea bottoms bring nutrients to the surface & stimulates plankton growth. I was struck by the similarity to the geritol solution of cutting CO2 by using iron solution to stimulate plankton growth.
Does this mean that we have a method of making power which is CO2 negative? Has there been either progress or serious glitches since then?
There were tests near Hawaii. The system works, and ought to be tried; one problem is transport of the resulting energy. It's idea for islands, of course.
I really need to get A Step Farther Out back in print. There's a rough version of Two Steps Farther out as well. What I don't have is time.
