Plant these at strategic times of the year and in specific places of high CO2 generation to absorb and transform it with a localized approach targeted for certain times of growth and high CO2 production on a huge scale?
What serious academic thought has gone into this?
I'll add much of such research to the Ocean and Climate Management Plan at WUaS, if it exists ...
Plant broad-leaved high CO2 absorbing living species, especially agriculturally?
