Algae floats. Why not just fertilize the ocean far away from land? It would also feed lots of new sea life we could eat, and suck massive amounts of carbon dioxide right out of the air, allowing everyone to drive around in SUVs, not just John Kommy's family.

Actually I think it sucks up oxygen. It is one of the reasons there is a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico the size of Rhode Island. Excessive fertilizers from agricultural production causes algae blooms and depletes the oxygen in the water. On the flip side I could run all of my vehicles off the crap that is on my own lake. I can't decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
Oh, by the way I found that dead zone thing from the National Oceanographic Service (NOS). Just in case you thought it was greenie propaganda.

They've already done successful experiments by seeding the oceans with iron to grow algae to suck up CO2.
