I suspected storm surge.

A 2010 study found that increasing the global production of biochar could offset over 10 percent of the world's human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. Due to its strong water absorption and retention capacity, biochar also is known to be a wonderful soil enricher.

In exploring other commercial applications for biochar, the team at NUS discovered that adding a small amount of it to cement or mortar mixtures made the resulting materials up to 20 percent stronger and 50 percent more watertight.

Regulating oceans is a big problem. We can't even get the otherwise civilized Japan to quit killing whales. Let alone hungry growing nations with their floating fish factories. And most developing countries are still heavily in a deforestation mode.

I bet it's very higher (Installer labor) on USA, since there they give value to workmanship.

I'm curious. With so modern material, why the films used for encapsulation of semi flexible solar cell have about 10% of loss (only 90% transparency or less) ?
A thin film should transfer more light.

With the current paradigm the irreducible cost is the installer's labor. Solar Cities glass roofing tiles change the equation by integrating into the roofing material itself.

Japan killing whales isn't a big problem as far as impact to sea ecosystems go. We tend to tolerate cultural traditions such as Eskimos hunting polar bears and Inuit hunting seals. I don't care to participate, but as long as the practices are regulated to remain sustainable, then I don't see it as a problem.

Africans slashing and burning rainforest isn't a historic cultural tradition as far as I know, but instead economically motivated. There needs to be more economic incentive to preserve the forests than is gained by short term farming.

Slam beating and kiling women it's also a cultural tradition, and DON'T DESERVE RESPECT. The same to the cruelty of chinese torturing dogs in the most abominable ways.

Tradition it's not a escuse. But the theme of whale and fishing it's not simple. We could reach the point of compare to the bovine creation for meat of our own culture.

The sea today have less than 50% of fish than 160 yeas ago, thanks to human activity & fishing.

Scalability is a geodesic sphere's bestest feature. They get stronger the bigger they are. It's a big ocean.

The problems addressed are predator control and not fouling the seafloor in a fixed location. I saw a proposal [citation needed] for releasing them on one side of the Pacific and letting them float free, and then retrieving them and harvesting the contents months later on the other side.

Algae farming may be a way in the future, combined with advanced food enginering, it could be used to creat sea meat analogues, similar to what it's used and still on research for improovement for bovine and chicken meat analogues made from grains.

Ethanol from algae it's also one tring for future, sicne there is already some reaseaches about.

By contrast all of the man made climate predictions made since 1983 have been wrong.
Citation needed on them being wrong:

Again, wrong. Like I said, with citations, solar variance and cycles ARE being factored into studies on the climate.

It saddens me greatly how few of us actually care about fuel economy and energy conservation nowadays.
