4. Well something needs to be done
And fast. This does seem a bit too risky though, damaging the ocean is the last thing we need now. I still support some limited testing though, boosting algae growth could still be useful, if the ecological effects are manageable or possibly even beneficial. Or perhaps it can't really help with global warming because of the effects if done on that scale, but could see a use in areas with low algae populations.

I don't what would actually happen, but that's what science is for. :)

Wasn't there also talk of putting sulfur into the upper atmosphere to cool things down? Anyone know what became of that? Sounds simple enough, and would involve putting an existing waste product to good use.
