Pitch

Integrating two technologies, Buoyant Flakes and Glacial Solutions, can be used to adjust regional climates and reverse ocean acidification


Description

Summary

It is intended that more proposals for integration, typically covering aspects mentioned in the supporting documents at http://envisionation.co.uk/index.php/sev-clarke be made under several new sub-proposals of this Global Plan. Included in these are likely to be: Transport, Electricity, USA, China, India, Europe, Other Developed nations (Russia, major fishing nations, Australia,...), and Other Developing Nations (Small Island States, ...). 

Collaborations are sought with people who are able to model key aspects of this integrated Global Plan, or who have potentially useful improvements or additions to make to it.


Category of the action

Geoengineering


What actions do you propose?

Two CoLab Geoengineering sub-proposals, Environmental Solutions via Buoyant Ocean Flakes and Glacial Solutions to Climate Change, can be integrated to provide us with two, fine-control climate intervention knobs with which to reverse much of the environmental damage we have done to our planet. The first provides the buoyant, slow-release nutrients necessary: to replenish marine life to its pre-industrial levels; to act as a solar heat shield for low latitudes; and to biosequester carbon in the ocean depths. The second proposal allows us: to selectively glaciate polar habitat; to radiate excess heat into space; to control methane emissions; and to generate vast amounts of renewable wind energy - all profitably.

 

Adjusting the two knobs together can tune our world away from the environmental catastrophes of global warming, ocean acidification, and extreme weather events. In time, the adjustments should also produce more food, more jobs, and reduce sea-level rise.
