‘Vilification’ of ocean fertilization

While I don’t think that I have enough information to make a judgement call on Russ George or on the concept of geoengineering, per se, since it encompasses many different types of activities. I do, however, have a serious problem with the idea that altering an ecosystem can solve another environmental issue. Let’s hope that the CBD signatories continue to make steps to comply and report on monitoring and enforcement of the existing international moratorium on ocean fertilization.

The Guardian broke the story on 15th of October: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/oct/15/pacific-iron-fertilisation-geoengineering

Then followed up yesterday at the end of the CBD COP11: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/oct/19/geoengineering-canada
