Ricky's Friday Fact - this week: The Sea
 
 
Did you know, the reason why tropical waters look so clear is that they are relatively devoid of life compared to more temperate seas. The warm water in the tropics has less oxygen, which means it cannot support plankton which is the base of the food chain. Instead, life has adapted by forming coral reefs which can harbour life, but the surrounding waters are plankton free and relatively sterile, and hence clear.

Also, I have never taken a shiete in Tropical waters; this may, or may not, be relevant.

Ricky's Friday Fact - this week: The Sea

 
Ricky I read (good getting the weekend started reading) but rarely reply to your facts but wanted to chip in on this one.

I read that kelp and algae are the way forward. It is estimated that marine plants produce between 70 and 80 percent of the oxygen in the atmosphere.

Now with global warming and rising sea levels plus forests apparently getting boredof producing oxygen we have a massive natural resource if you only glance East of Portsmouth, that is right our inland seas Hayling Thorney Chichester Harbour etc.

Since being a kid and losing countless wellies in the stinking algae rich mud of our fine inlets, I am convinced that project to harvest and export the oxygen rich gasses should be planned immediately.

Just a thought. Clearly our part of Hampshire will need dykes and sea defences to maintain a far higher GDP oxygen rich, imagine what Pompey would do to oxygen starved opposition?

But sadly we have to accept that there will be losers as the less desirable parts of the region turn from cities to swamps .

However on a bright note active kelp production in places like St Fairies would make a perfect location for kelp farming as well as the port etc.

The funniest thing I ever saw as a kid was my dad getting a t urd in his mouth when we were swimming in Stokes Bay. He didn't see the funny side BTW.
