tropic indoor pools against global warming





fuzzkaizer
here's a nice try for the year of 2050:

by then you could save the world from global warming by hanging out at some indoor pools, it might seem - but actually they try at least to sell an interesting idea:

"Bloom Aquatic Farm is a concept semi submersible sphere platform ... is the beginning of a phytoplankton farm which located on the sea ...
It’s ambitious large-scale project that takes advantage of phytoplankton to absorb CO2 excesses and produce O2. This semi-submersible sphere is moored to the seabed with a system of cables, it can be in coastal zones to alert anyone in case of sudden rising water, tsunamis, and more. It can also be located in died zones from the oceans to regulate their quantity of O2 simply by injecting phytoplankton into rivers, lakes, or different water ports."

Here's the whole article with some more nice pictures of our future:

This looks like an interesting idea, although I see it as more of a research platform than as a practical worldwide environment changer. I found a couple of other references to it.

which seems it may be the source for a lot of the pictures, and may have more of them.

Sitbon Architectes designed this floating farm as both a research facility and as a way to oxygenate ocean "dead zones."

The structure wouldn't be designed as a living space, although it would be able to house the scientists who operate it.


They do talk about building a lot of them, and see them as locally beneficial to the environment, possibly even worldwide.

The company's own site,

is apparently not in English and I chose not to enable flash there.
