Can Seaweed Help Curb Global Warming? Introducing our board member Tim Flannery

One of our main sources of inspiration is Tim Flannery, who we are proud to call our board member and chief scientist. Tim Flannery, explorer, environmentalist and professor, seeks to grasp the big picture of planetary evolution and how humans can affect it — for better or for worse. In this TED talk, Tim shares the carbon-capturing potential of seaweed and explains how ocean-going seaweed farms created on a massive scale could trap all the carbon we emit into the atmosphere. This TED talk will help you understand why KFF aims to quantify the ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration, provided by kelp forests, and the (scientific) work that is still needed to make kelp cultivation a viable climate solution.
