A Global Plan: Chemosynthetic Managing of the Water/Energy/Nutrient Nexus (WENN) by CO2 Negative/RCP 2.6
The oceans offer us abundant bio-energy, water and other critical commodities. And, we need to achieve RCP 2.6 (neg. global emissions) soon.
Ocean resources can supply a vast/sustainable supply of water, nutrients and CO2 negative energy. The STEM needed to radically expand the production of these critical commodities is extant and offers a rapid path to achieving the RCP 2.6 metastrategy.
A basic overview:
1) IPCC (WG3)-"..the combination of bio-energy, carbon capture and..storage (BECCS)...if biomass is grown sustainably, this combination may lead to negative emissions". This proposal is a BECCS class proposal.
2) Marine Biomass- International interest in sustainable marine biomass production is high.
4) The Gas Exchange of Hydrogen-adapted Algae as Followed by Mass Spectrometry- Chemosynthetic production of micro-algal based biochar/biofuel/food/feed/fertilizer and fresh water production.
5) Alabama Gets First-In-World Carbon-Negative Algae Biofuel-Photosynthetic based CO2 negative fuel production. Chemosynthetic based cultivation, coupled with marine resources, is a far cheaper system due to multiple factors.
6) NASA's OMEGA Project. "...to grow algae, clean wastewater, capture carbon dioxide and..produce biofuel without competing with agriculture for water, fertilizer or land.".
7) The IMBECUS Protocol: Working draft of an international marine centric STEM and cooperative governance scenario.
The above chemosynthesis technology can be used in terrestrial or marine tanks or pipelines converted over to function as 'dark bio-reactors'.
Interestingly, due to the high level of 'public/civic use' need (i.e. existential need for AGW mitigation/adaptation), emanate domain laws (EDLs), in some nations, can be used to secure existing pipelines/lands for conversion to chemosynthetic bio-reactor type pipelines.
Using EDLs to acquire existing right-of-ways and pipelines avoids significant new construction costs.

Thus, energy, water and nutrients etc. can move along the same land utility (2M km+ in US).
