Algae bloom process could stop global warming


Melting icebergs release iron particles which cause algae blooms, which in turn absorb carbon emission, then sink to the bottom of the ocean for hundreds of years

A researcher says, “The Earth itself seems to want to save us.”

Green algae may turn out to be the best friend humanity ever had, slowing global warming and as a source of biofuel. Perhaps one day, quite soon, calling someone “pond scum” will be a compliment.
