Who would have thought one little letter would make people switch the mantra from “save the world, make a little money on the side” to “make money, save a little of the world on the side.”

All in all the crisis of ocean change with the death sentence given the Southern Ocean last week of 2030 all this fuss about climate change and its muzzled and muffed mechanism becomes rather moot. If we, meaning the world does not begin ocean eco-restoration and accomplish a substantial measure of it by 2030 we will witness and be part of the greatest mass extinction in history. The oceans will reboot the planetary ecosystem back to the bacterial sea from whence green plants and animal life evolved some 600 million years ago.

The tools to replenish and restore the planktos of the ocean and in doing so they will convert 4-5 billion tonnes of CO2 each year into ocean life as opposed to ocean death is well in hand following 20 years and a quarter of a billion dollars in research… The cost to achieve this goal would be a few billion dollars per year and therein lies the problem that started this comment… Immediately available, inexpensive solutions to saving the world only allow a LITTLE money to be made on the side.
