This is almost as smart as the idea to just start dumping iron into the sea for no apparent reason.
But the scientists are sure this will work, right?
"When whales consume the iron-rich krill, they excrete most of the iron back into the water, therefore fertilising the ocean and starting the whole food cycle again," scientist Steve Nicol said.
The research suggests that if whale numbers grow, their droppings could help marine plant life flourish, thereby improving the ocean's ability to absorbblamed for .
Wow! Research suggests! That actually means almost nothing. Rudimentary research by 8th graders could also suggest that the earth is flat.
