. . CO2 Enhancement Process . . by Johnnie Buttram
When the crops we take for granted fail to produce . . Sargassum can feed our starving world!
It is estimated that food supplies will have to double in the next 40
years to feed a population of nine billion.
If we expand this population growth to also include fuel, climate
change, new plant and animal diseases, etc., many leaders believe
we must seek new directions if we are to provide the needed
economic growth our planet needs for a better tomorrow.
Although the USA looked at it closely in the 1970s, today the
Japanese are quick to recognize that our oceans can play a
significant part in neutralizing the planetary challenges coming at
us over the next horizon.
The Japanese claim that in 2005 with carbon dioxide at (380 ppm)
they could produce 7,500 tons of sargassum per square mile by
growing sargassum weed in huge nets floating off the coast of
Each net would be six miles by six miles and produce 270,000 tons
a year of sargassum weed.
When scientists discovered (Please see - Mystery of the Sargasso
Sea Solved / Live science, 2008.) that small eddies of constant
upwelling moved the CO2 / nutrients upward to the hungry plants
floating on the surface, this explained why sargassum plants has
the capacity to grow up to 40 feet per year and absorb up to 36
tons of CO2 in the process.
Upon addressing the atmospheric side of the equation, scientists
also found that today's normal circumstances of (400 ppm), one
acre of seaweed can lock away almost eight metric tons of CO2 per
year from our atmosphere.
When I further investigated this situation, I discovered what may
be the solution to our planetary problems.

N. and Kotzabasis, K. 2004. Journal of Plant Physiology 161: 715 -
It was determined that exposure to air of 100,000 ppm of CO2
produces, in the words of the authors, "A reorganization of the
photosynthetic apparatus that leads to enhanced photosynthetic
rates, which leads to an immense increase of biomass."
Category of the action
What actions do you propose?
CO2 Enhancement equals Sargassum on steroids!
This unique CO2 saturation process utilizing contract labor, consultants,
and leased equipment will turn a profit, and also provide the food, energy,
and essentials our planet needs for a better tomorrow.
Basically, this process creates an opportunity to;
(1) Receive a fee to safely dispose of manufactured CO2s.
(2) These CO2s provide saturation for the Sargassum. When these
CO2s are absorbed into the Sargassum, this dynamic creates run-a-
way growth for food and energy.
(3)These products are sold and distributed to the masses at a fair price.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS;
CO2 collecting divisions of the U.S., U.K., etc. . receives an
imbursement of (? $ ?) per metric ton for safely utilizing
These CO2s are freighted by rail, truck, &/or pipeline to coastal
locations to be loaded on barges, etc. and freighted to GPS
Meanwhile; as the CO2s are being freighted to their destinations,
small tugboats herd huge floating Sargassum masses, using high
tensile lines connected to buoys, with heavy net hanging from the
bottom of the lines about 10 feet down.
When the freighted CO2s arrive, they are released by prescription,
using a perf system in the zone below the huge floating islands of
Sargassum. The CO2s slowly perk and eddy up to the floating
Sargassum as their food source, essential for growth and
propagation. This ultimate carbon sink will create the massive
bio/mass our planet needs for food and energy.
Net farming Sargassum - expanded in combination with the CO2
Enhancement Process - will create overlapping bio/mass dynamics
never before documented.
These huge Sargassum Islands would then be floated to coastal
facilities or shipped inland to be processed into high protein,
vitamins, minerals, foodstuffs, and energy.
Because of this and other scientific research, no wonder microalgae and
macroalgae are being seriously explored as the tangible solution to many
of our global problems.
Who will take these actions?
Governments, institutions, collations, consortiums, Nonprofit
Organizations (NPOs), Non-government Organizations (NGOs) and
individuals concerned about the welfare of everyone on Planet
Where will these actions be taken?
Everywhere on Planet Earth there is an opportunity to make a positive
What are other key benefits?
. . . Planet Earth is faced with three realities . . .
(1) With ample food, water, and shelter . . there is NORMALCY!
(2) With limited food, water, and shelter . . there is ADAPTATION!
(3) Without food, water, and shelter . . there is MIGRATION and
Cultivated land should never be depleted of its nutrients - trading
carbon footprints that are debatable.
Especially now, when crops we have always taken for granted are
failing to produce.
Cultivated land should be used to feed a starving world!
We must get serious about adaptation strategies designed to help
Planet Earth maintain the bare essentials of food, water, and
What are the proposal’s costs?
The Japanese have been successful using net farming for many
years . . to enhance their food and energy sectors.
This CO2 perfing process will not only manufacture more food and
energy but will also provide additional income as a viable CO2 sink
A win, win, win, solution!
In Japan this CO2 Enhancement Process could be in limited operation in
less than 90 days and full operation in one year after they made a

If our planetary leaders continue thinking "inside-the-box",
declining to be connected, and choosing the indecision of
business as usual, Planet Earth will inevitably succumb to our
vices and superficial reasoning.
