Additional comments:
- No Data supporting the assumption that kelp will absorb CO2, how much the unit kelp will absorb the CO2, and sinking the kelp bed into the sea will permanently store the CO2. In addition, not mentioning who to do the work and how this can be done

- I am not familiar with marine issues.

- Strong single idea that could be applied globally, but not a global proposal itself. The idea is to create a floating garden of kelp in the world's oceans, aiming to use the bottom of the ocean as a carbon sink. The idea is not unheard of before, however it would be interesting to see how it is developed (and implemented, if possible). The main proposal selected a set of sub-proposals; some are relatively related to the main one.
