Google says this study claims it can't work


According to the study by MIT, the amount of iron that microbes in the ocean need, is essentially the amount we have right now. Adding more iron on a global scale won't work it won't just increase the amount of microbes as they think it will.

No idea how they determine that.

Bummer
Thanks for the MIT info, though

I wonder if the guy in the video really had his research confiscated by the government (or Men in Black or whatever)
