Fighting Global Warming Thru Carbon Absorption?

 3:15 pm on Sep 27, 2007 (gmt 0)

Last night on the BBC news, there was a brief on carbon absorption from the atmosphere and then dumping it to the bottom of the ocean as the next thing to reduce global warming. Testing apparently has already begun.

This sounds like messing up another part of our ecology to stop global warming. Then maybe in steps global cooling....and then we're worried about an ice age, so then do we start pumping out carbon?

It's redistribution one way or another.

So global warming brings:
1. More extreme weather
2. May unlock a plague on the world as the ice melts in the Antartic releasing lots of prehistoric bacteria that we are no longer immune to (hmm sounds like revelations coming into effect) - ref "The Independent 26th Sept"

3. Warmer, nicer weather in places like the UK
4. More heat for us to harness into energy
5. Adaptations to keeping cooler
6. Longer harvesting season

Should we be concerned or should we be happy with global warming?

I guess it depends on if you live on the coast.

That is an interesting concept. I read about it somewhere else several months ago.

Its good that they are thinking outside of the box on this issue. Human imagination at its finest.

If you are owning .tv domains you shouldn't be so happy about global warming since Tuvalu won't exist any more in about 30-50 years and they are already planning evacuation.


When Tuvalu is gone they'll probably phase out the .tv ending like they do now with ".yu". (Which is probably one of the lesser problems the people there worry about.)

It makes bugger all difference if I shiver all winter, if the rainforests continue to be destroyed in order to grow bio fuels (sic), mine minerals, and rear cattle for burger joints.

Speaking of biofuels and chopping down rain forests....

Air New Zealand and Virgin Airlines are looking to fuel their planes with a mixture of biofuels and kerosene. Virgin say tests are to start next year.....

Don't know if Bio Fuel is such a good idea. If all farmers start to grow corn for biofuel instead of potatoes or vegetables the prices for food will skyrocket.

Maybe that's a good thing. The developed nations tend to suffer from obesity and large quantities of food waste.

The developing nations that tend to focus on crops like tobacco could now focus on producing biofuels instead (sorry all smokers). Genetically modified strains of palm oil will provide higher yields.

Dunno everything has to be give and take. Finding alternatives to oil and coal isn't an easy task. Seems which ever route we take will tip a different scale.

Point to be noted. Are we talking about earth? There is only one. So shouldn't we be real worried like where do we all relocate?


 7:56 pm on Oct 5, 2007 (gmt 0)

You mean like Earth 1999? A series in the 1970s or 1980s I think.


 7:07 am on Oct 6, 2007 (gmt 0)

Anything other than attacking the root causes is simply messing with a balance that is far wiser than we are :P

Fix the problem, don't bandaid it say :)


 1:03 am on Oct 7, 2007 (gmt 0)

How to fix the people's heads? World is driven by money and wanting things!


 9:13 am on Oct 7, 2007 (gmt 0)

Good thinking. Now that you know what makes the problem,resolve it.Walk don't drive, go easy on the usage of water for starters. No I am not talking about any "series" unless the moon has been pronounced ready for occupation or is it Mars!Earth ur standing on has no copy.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.

This is true in the issue of Global Warming than anything else. :)

Wise words H. - still apathy - or maybe no realisation of consequences

Have you heard about the prehistoric bugs at the Antarctic being woken up......




 9:51 am on Oct 12, 2007 (gmt 0)

no realisation of consequences .... would it make a difference if we could see the future.


 3:16 pm on Oct 12, 2007 (gmt 0)

See, I have this theory that old Mother earth will definitely solve all her problems through carbon absorption. Just as soon as all the carbon-based units that are currently causing problems pass away and are absorbed into her crust...

no realisation of consequences .... would it make a difference if we could see the future.

If you see a car coming at you, you will get out of the way (normally)


 10:22 am on Oct 13, 2007 (gmt 0)

Precisely. Now what do you do? Maybe this will only be resolved when all things come to their preconcieved end. Apocolypse. The least I can do is carry on my own lil efforts to conserve my environnment however puny that may sound.


 1:05 pm on Oct 13, 2007 (gmt 0)

For a web development business, going carbon neutral is actually very affordable. I suggest you all investigate it.


 1:39 pm on Oct 13, 2007 (gmt 0)

How much greenhouse gas could we save if all of us gave up baked beans?
