Sunlight and Seaweed

Sunlight and Seaweed

You may never look at a piece of seaweed the same way.  Research is showing that seaweed has vast potential to draw carbon out of the atmosphere – and to also provide a generous food source for fish. In his new book, Sunlight and Seaweed, Prof Tim Flannery explores the potential of kelp, a fast-growing sea algae, to be used on a large scale to convert carbon from the air to a non-gaseous form, reducing levels of atmospheric carbon.
