Companies hoping to grow carbon-sucking kelp may be rushing ahead of the science

Companies hoping to grow carbon-sucking kelp may be rushing ahead of the science | The EcoPlum Daily | Scoop.it
Sinking seaweed could sequester a lot of carbon, but researchers are still grappling with basic questions about reliability, scalability and risks.
Eduardo Garcia's curator insight, September 22, 2:55 PM
This article stated the importance of gathering enough scientific data before implementing a coastal management plan. Many times implementing "carbon credits" or other preventative measures create unintended consequences with a host of new problems. The complexity of carbon sequestration through aquatic vegetation is much harder to monitor than terrestrial vegetation. However the industry for carbon sequestration has several prototypes currently running with predictive models on how to reduce our carbon footprint according to projected growth. 
Suzanne Bergantzel's comment, September 23, 9:14 PM
Great read! I'm all for doing what we can to alleviate the pressures causing climate change, but we NEED to do the research before we jump on a bandwagon. I love that this article points out the dangers of running forward without thinking about the consequences first.
