Warming Oceans Puts at Risk the World’s Richest Marine Biodiversity

A group of scientists from around the world, led by scientists from the University of Adelaide, found that the rates of future warming oceans pose a threat to marine life in more than 70% of the most biodiverse parts of the oceans. "Our research shows that places with a lot of marine life will be…

Artificial Upwelling

Artificial Upwelling: an opportunity to reverse climate change.

Overview The oceans absorb nearly a third of the worlds excess CO2 emissions with phytoplankton, microscopic plants. A cup of seawater holds nearly a quarter of a billion of them. Phytoplankton thrive on ocean nutrients. And like all plants, absorb carbon dioxide to live. We believe that the oceans can restore our climate to pre-industrial…
consequences of global warming

Are the Consequences of Global Warming Really That Serious?

The obvious answer Increasingly severe weather Storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts are all getting worse as temperatures rise. Weather patterns change as the climate warms, making wet areas wetter and dry areas drier. Extreme weather events are increasing costs and more billion-dollar weather disasters are expected. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,…

Summer 2022 trials for Artificial Upwelling Pumps in the Canary Islands

Ocean waves power a pump that moves high-nutrient seawater from 400 meters (1,312 feet) below the surface to the surface, where phytoplankton blooms can start. This leads to ocean CDR. According to the company’s CEO Philip Kithil, “Our wave pump technology, in development since 2005, could play a key role in removing the billions of…

What are phytoplankton?

What are Phytoplankton? Phytoplankton is a tiny creature that lives in aquatic habitats, both salty and fresh. It is named after the Greek terms phyto (plant) and plankton (made to wander or drift). Why are phytoplankton significant?
FAQ Ocean-based Climate Solutions

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks of deploying Artificial Upwelling Pumps? Will ocean acidification worsen as more CO2 dissolves into the ocean from the atmosphere? The deep water is cold and, therefore, denser than surface water. Won’t it just sink back down? The deepwater brought upward by AUP’s contains more dissolved CO2 than the upper ocean. Will…

Stock for Carbon (S4C)

Financial solution Stock for Carbon for Public Companies with Negative Emissions Goals. The second question is: assuming the AUP technology is adopted, which companies can afford to pay cash, or more likely pay in stock to preserve their working capital? To answer this, we first calculated the percentage of cash on hand (in most cases…
