  • Commented on YAPC::NA 2014 keynote: Programming Perl in 2034
    Looks simple enough though extra biomass on a large scale will alter the water temperature and thus ocean currents. Did they check how would that change weather patterns (precipitation)? Otherwise it makes sense to use mostly underutilized space in oceans....

    This really sounds great! Thanks!...

    Maybe I am missing something: efficiency of photosynthesis is order of percent so what is the rationale to convert solar into plants and plants into oil and oil into energy, instead solar into energy? I agree that oil would more...

    Agreed though first, I expect the compression in time. Real world is so slow compared to these....
