Reduce Global Warming
Turn to the Oceans
The hole in the ozone layer is due to a lack of oxygen in the atmosphere, which is a product of too much carbon emmissions. This oxygen has to be replaced at a rate, at least equivelent to that of the carbon emmissions.
Kelp, a common seaweed that has the ability to grow at a very fast rate, is already responsible for one third to one half of the oxygen in the ozone layer.
To my knowledge, Universities in both California and Germany have already looked into the possibility of increasing the amount of Kelp in the oceans. However I believe they were checking to see if it could grow in colder or warmer waters.
The solution to the ozone problem must certainly lie with the Kelp. Scientists should try to genetically alter this seaweed, so that if it cannot grow in other conditions, then, as it is a seasonal plant, it can flourish twice a year instead of once.
It has already been proposed to have Kelp farms, as it can be used as a source of renewable energy, replacing or in conjunction with corn ethanol.
This possibility should be looked into, with priority, by serious people with serious money. They could start by looking at the possible effects on the ocean eco-system. Who knows, maybe, as it is at the bottom of the food chain, it may even help to replenish the reducing stock of fish in our oceans.
