Seaweed farms could be a highly effective way to combat climate game, an expert says.

Acclaimed Australian scientist and author Tim Flannery spoke at The Inconvenient Conference held in Auckland on Tuesday and hosted by the Sustainable Business Network.

Flannery was Australia’s chief climate commissioner in 2011 and founded the Australian Climate Council in 2013. He also chaired the Copenhagen Climate Council in 2007.

He said seaweed’s role in protecting waterways and helping tackle climate change could not be overstated.

If seaweed farms were planted extensively enough to cover 9 per cent of the world’s ocean it would remove 53 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year, about the same as all human emissions annually, he said.

Growing 30 to 60 times faster than land-based plants seaweed drew high levels of carbon dioxide out of oceans allowing the oceans to absorb more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

In contrast planting the entire United States with trees would take out 5 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, he said.

Seaweed was being used as a farming tool in Queensland after experts realised nutrient run-off from farming was damaging Great Barrier Reef.

Queensland’s government enforced zero emission regulations for all new agricultural developments on the coast, he said.

To adapt to regulation land-based fish farms and a coal-fired power station in Queensland used seaweed as a natural filter to draw contaminants out of water before being pumped into natural waterways and the ocean.

Similar models could be used in New Zealand to help improve waterways, he said.

“The take home message is that solutions are there,” Flannery said.

Because the rural sector would resist change it needed a brave government to enforce greater regulation, he said.

flannery is an ideological fool..a slave to the green religion..an alarmist who predicts things that never happen..he never says sorry for it either!

so yeah..massive seaweed farms will save us from drought and hurricanes..

“If seaweed farms were planted extensively enough to cover 9 per cent of the world’s ocean it would remove 53 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year, about the same as all human emissions annually, he said.”

9% of the worlds oceans..imagine the smell..
