NOTE ON POPULAR POSTS

The reason some popular posts are tagged ‘no title’ is not because they have no title—they all do—but because the old Blogger embedded the title at the top of text, and the new software does not see that. You can see the titles in capitals at the start of each snippet. (It would be nice if Blogger introduced an upgrade program that could fix this little problem.)

OCEANS COULD BE USED TO SLURP UP CO2?

American researchers have proposed a method, reported in Science Daily, of using and enhancing the ocean's absorption of carbon-dioxide by building many hundreds of water-treatment plants round the world. They would extract hydrochloric acid from seawater, which would be neutralised with rock. That would make the oceans more alkaline, enhancing their ability to soak up more CO2. They say 700 plants would offset all our carbon-dioxide emissions.
