    If CO2 can speed the growth of algae, great. But the chance that we can speed up photosynthesis enough to allow us to replace a high fraction of the C burned is extremely remote. Essentially you're proposing a form of solar energy, biomass, accelerated by the CO2 exhaust. Biomass requires very large land areas.  

    I strongly recommend the wonderful free online book by David Mackay.http://www.withouthotair.com/

    •  I agree. It is only a thought (0+ / 0-)

      but what other alternatives do we have?  I have been paddled over and over here for advocating fission.

      Warmest regards,

      Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me over and over, then either I really love you blindly or I am a Republican.
